Read Isaiah 9:1-4

Tuesday

Read Isaiah 9:1-4

9:1 But there will be no gloom for those who were in anguish. In the former time he brought into contempt the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in the latter time he will make glorious the way of the sea, the land beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the nations.

9:2 The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who lived in a land of deep darkness on them light has shined.

9:3 You have multiplied the nation, you have increased its joy; they rejoice before you as with joy at the harvest, as people exult when dividing plunder.

9:4 For the yoke of their burden, and the bar across their shoulders, the rod of their oppressor, you have broken as on the day of Midian.

Think

There is a gospel chorus that echoes:  "God can do it again and again and again, He's the same God today as He always has been..."  To remember that "the people who walked in darkness have seen a great light" is to remember that God is always able to bring us out of darkness and into light and joy.

Pray

Reflecting on verse 4: "For the yoke of their burden, and the bar across their shoulders, the rod of their oppressor, you have broken as on the day of Midian."  What are the yokes, bars and rods that God needs to break for you to see light.
