14 Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.
Today’s Inspiration: In a time of uncertainty, we normally wondered if Christ is with us and whether we are in His moulding process that calls for such pain in our life. In Isaiah 9, His name is Emmanuel God with us. We therefore should not have any doubt that He is with us.
Romans 12:1-2 required a sacrifice bigger than ourselves. Jesus act of sacrifices on the cross is to send a message of greater obedience to His will like Him, a sacrifice better than the old testament.
Offering out body as loving sacrifices means total devotions to God through prayer, communion with Him on a daily basis, repentance, read the word, meditate on His word, worship and study the word on a daily basis and giving onto God your all. In fact we owe Him everything. Every cent we have belongs to Him. We invest His money He entrusted to us in His kingdom.
Faith means holding onto God even in times of great testing of our belief like Job. He gave but He also takes away. Blessed be the name of the Lord. He sounds but heals. Job 5:18-20.
If we’re to seek Him earnestly and listen closely to our hearts, He will make His will known for our lives. Philippians 4:12-13 learn to be in control. Mature in your faith. God be praised.
