It is good to remember amidst the daily news reports of destruction and suffering,
that the Lord has not been taken by surprise, and He isn't in retreat.
His answer has always been to come in the midst of darkness and meet people where they are, bringing His light & transformation.
This is the message of Christmas.
O come Emmanuel!
The people walking in darkness have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders.
And He 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........
The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this.
[Isaiah 9:2, 6, 7]
