16 Days ’til Christmas . . .

9 Dec

. . . and I’m trying to finish up my flurry of online Christmas shopping so that everybody gets their gifts on time.  Let’s take a time out to look at the most amazing gift of all:  Jesus.  The other day we looked at Isaiah 9:6 and the Prince of Peace.  Today lets look at the ever-increasing peace of His government.

There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, On the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness From then on and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will accomplish this.  Isaiah 9:7

Jesus rules with the law of love in our hearts.  The more we allow Him to rule in our hearts, instead of insisting on self rule, the more peace we will have.  As His government increases, our peace increases.  We need to be loyal subjects in the kingdom instead of rebellious subjects who need to be in control ourselves.

You ARE my King, Lord Jesus.  I bow down before you today, consciously denying myself and lifting you up.  Help me to continue to deny myself and place you on the throne of my heart as I walk through this busy day.
