Verse for Today: Friday, December 21, 2012
Isaiah 9:6b – And His name shall be called Mighty God.
The people who heard the words of prophecy from Isaiah might have wondered how a new born baby would be Mighty God! Jesus in His incarnation and humanity was that baby in the manger in Bethlehem. He appeared physically as weak and powerless as any other baby. But the babe who was asleep in the mother’s lap was still the Mighty God who put all His powers under control. He was a weak Man in the Garden of Gethsemane. When He kept quiet before the High Priest, Herod, Pilate, the Roman soldiers and the mob, they all thought He was weak and powerless. All the way from the Praetorium to Calvary, in the midst of all the atrocities leveled against Him, Jesus did not exhibit His power and might. He kept His might under control and gave His life for humanity as a weak and powerless man. But while on earth, He was powerful enough to walk on the water. Simply at His words alone seas became calm, demons ran out of human lives, the dead came back to life and the eyes of the blind opened. He emptied Himself of His divine power and lay as a weak baby in a manger so that all the spiritually powerless human beings could become the dwelling place of His Spirit. He has been the Mighty God from the beginning and will be Mighty God throughout eternity. He was the Creator and has sustained the galaxies in such a way that this earth will be inhabitable for humans whom He loved and gave His life. He kept His might under control only for a little over three decades so that we can have His spiritual power and might all through eternity. Through His might, today we can do things for which we would not have been otherwise equipped. Today we have the power to preach about Him which would melt the most hardhearted individuals. When we pray in His might, He will answer us. We can do all things through Him who strengthens us with His might. If we give weak our lives to Him unreservedly, He will put His might in us to use us for His glory.
Dear friend, are you experiencing weakness in your soul to accomplish anything meaningful for God? Are you weak willed and powerless in the exercise of your spiritual responsibilities? If you have the heart of a servant, you will be empowered by Jesus the Mighty God to strengthen you to fulfill the tasks that are entrusted with you. When you are lost in the wonder and awe of Jesus and are filled with His Word and His Spirit, you will be a mighty warrior for Him. His might will strengthen your faith to trust Him in all your situations. He has given you His power to exercise your faith in times of hindrances, confusions and chaos. In the name of Jesus the Mighty God, you can face the enemy with boldness and confidence. His Spirit will fill you with His might to face all your difficult circumstances with confidence and courage. When you pray in the name of the Mighty God, doors will open, chains will fall and light from God will be shed through the darkest clouds in your horizon. It is in His mighty power that you will experience emotional healing. The Mighty God will enable you to wear the whole armor of God to fight the enemy. In His might, obstructive seas and rivers will give way for you to cross over. Today you have the privilege to imbibe into His might by getting yourself filled with His Word and His Spirit which will change your attitude, actions, expressions, exercise of your faith and trust and the communication of His love. Your emotions will be under the control of His might so that you will experience rest, peace, tranquility and contentment. Let the Mighty God who put all His might under control and became like a baby give you ardent faith like a child, make you adventurous like a teen and mature like an adult.
Isaiah 40:29 – He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
