December 18: Isaiah 9:1-7

Welcome to The Intentional Podcast. Setting aside time for prayer and Scripture meditation can change the posture of your day. Thank you for spending a few minutes with us as we turn our attention to what Jesus has for the day ahead.

OPENING PRAYER:  

Before you read the Scripture for today, limit the distractions around you and spend time in prayer. Spend time thanking God for the opportunity we have to spend with Him through the reading of His Word.

SCRIPTURE:

Isaiah 9:1-7

HISTORICAL CONTEXT:

This passage is a prophecy from the prophet Isaiah. Isaiah is acknowledging the dark days of the present, but calling the people to look to the future which will be bringing the coming Messiah. This “Prince of Peace” that Isaiah is talking about is going to be bringing much more than just no war, but peace that includes safety, wholeness, and good relationships.
