Scripture Sunday 12/24

We had an all day family Christmas yesterday so I am posting Scripture Sunday on Monday.
Praying you have a Blessed Christmas with Family and Friends.

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

In light of recent events this passage seemed so perfect. The prophecy of his birth and his ultimate power over our world spoke to my heart. 
I pray my boys will grow to understand that which he is called.
Almighty God
Everlasting Father
Prince of Peace

Knowing that the government will be on HIS shoulders, the earthly government isn't the government the verse is reffing to , but the government of the spiritual. The peace is that of knowing and being at- one with God.
Knowing that God is in control of this world and our spiritual world makes my heart lighter.

  1. I agree that it is wonderful to know that God is the ultimate ruler in our lives and that while we might have to submit to local government, it will never surpass his reign.
