Why Christmas? Part 6 – “The bow”
“Then Isaiah said, “Hear now, you house of David! Is it not enough to try the patience of humans? Will you try the patience of my God also? Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel. He will be eating curds and honey when he knows enough to reject the wrong and choose the right,” – Isaiah 7:13-15
The bow was originally what held the present together or what kept it from being been but also what made it desired – so it was at the time this prophecy was made.
The people had lost the concept of “the right” – they had lost Faith that God would Always take care of them and Love them and that He Alone would provide All they needed – note “the right” was not about following the law – it was about resting in Him!
So the bow around our Lord was this He knew God was in control and He rested in that even while He was a little baby! This is Peace – God Has All things and All events in His control and He Loves you so much that it will All be for your good!
Here is another cool part – we haven’t even unwrapped the present yet – keep following these studies of “Why Christmas” – just wait till you see what He Freely gave you!
Don’t try the patience of God any longer – rest in Him! Rest in His Love and begin to see how much He Loves you by understanding that everything is in His control and with His Peace!
We will never fully understand or grasp the Love of God – but we can live in the light that we have been given to this moment and shine that to others!
