Isaiah 9:6-7 New King James Version (NKJV)

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

As I thought about christmas this year, this scripture filled my heart. We often refer to this scripture when talking about the kingship and coming reign of the Lord but as I read the scripture over and over again, The Lord illuminated to me the passage that says “Of the increase of His government & peace there will be no end”.  He’s not just talking about when He comes back to rule and reign but now.

Do you know that when you accept Jesus in your life and you allow Him to rule and reign in you, He brings His peace with Him. So many times we go about toiling through life, trying to piece things together when God just wants us to rest in and be guided by His peace. It may not be easy but His peace will guide you. After all, the government of our lives is supposed to be on His shoulders, not ours!

This Christmas, I pray we all realize more than ever that Jesus isn’t just some baby laying in a manger.  He is Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace and He wants to rule and reign in your life!

Merry Christmas y’all!
