Isaiah 9

by John Wright

Whenever we see the lights of Christmas, let’s let them remind us that Christ is our true light.  Sometimes we feel that our troubles and sorrows will never end; all we see is gloom and despair and none of the wonderful gifts of God all around us. There is, however, a great light that we presently may not see but is always shining.  hat light is the Messiah, the Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace. He is the one that came to give us life and that more abundantly.

When we focus on Him rather than on ourselves we are not only able to see through the darkness but our path will be lit (Ps. 119:105).We can take comfort in that certainty and that although the Lord may not always take us around our troubles, if we follow wholeheartedly, He will lead us safely through them.
