Day 11 Advent – Joy – Isaiah 9:1-7

11 joyFor to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end,

If you live in the good ole U.S. of A., you cannot miss all the people clamoring to have the responsibility of our government put on their shoulders. It’s doesn’t really matter how good, honest, intelligent or right that one person may be, they will be supporting an enormous weight. They will not be up to the whole of the task. They will, we can only pray, do the best job they personally can.

Surprisingly, even in what is touted as the “greatest country in the world” we will not have a perfect or righteous leader because that leader will not be God Himself.

But one day…when the King of Kings and Lord of Lords returns to claim His Kingdom in all His fullness – that will change. He, Jesus, is uniquely perfect to carry the weight of governing. Moreover, He will reign in Peace with Might and Wisdom for all of eternity. Not just on David’s throne but on the throne of Heaven and over all the nations of the earth.

Greater than one could ever imagine will be the time when darkness will rule this world no more. We will be translated into the Kingdom of Light to live in justice and righteousness forevermore.

Truly, Joy will have come to the World!

Heaven and nature and angels and all mankind will indeed have cause again to sing!
