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 government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David's throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this.
A shepherd-king came to stand in the Davidic line, not to be like other kings, but to govern our lives from the inside out, as he changes our hearts and enlivens our consciences.(from
Lord, I concede that I don't like to have anyone take control of me. Help me to see the joy that your governing will never end, and because of that , peace will increase.
Let's pray for our government during their time of turmoil.
I hope that everyone has a blessed Sunday!
