Thoughts for the Day

Jesus and Hope

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

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. Isaiah 9:6

When Isaiah chapter 9 was written, God’s people were living in exile and wanted something to hold on to. Isaiah gave them hope. It was hope that there was a better day coming when there would be no more war and it was all because a child would be born who would be their king.
That is all they had to hold on to, but it was enough. That child, Jesus, was born. He lived and died—and rose again from the dead. Though we know more of Jesus than they did, it is pretty much still the same. You and I have hope because of Jesus. Whatever struggles you face now—Jesus has a plan. Don’t worry about the details so much—just trust Jesus. He is our “Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace” and MORE.
