December 8
Read: Isaiah 9:2-7
Symbol: Rose

Isaiah was one of the prophets through whom God spoke to Israel. Long before Jesus was born, Isaiah prophesied that God would send a Savior into the world.
Many names have been given to Jesus. In Isaiah 9:6 He is called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. In other places He is called the Lily of the Valley; Son of David; Messiah; Son of God; the Vine; the Good Shepherd; the Way, the Truth and the Life.
He is our advocate, our intercessor, the Bread of Life, the Cornerstone, the Alpha and Omega, the author and finisher of our faith, the Lamb of God, and the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
The symbol of the rose reminds us that He is called the Rose of Sharon. It also reminds us of the prophecy of Isaiah that the desert shall blossom as a rose at the coming of the Lord. (Is. 35:1.)

Prayer: Dear Father, thank You that Jesus has come to us to be our Savior and to be all that His names mean. Thank You that every dry desert place in our lives blossoms because He has come to us.

Link to Isaiah

The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light
Thou hast multiplied the nation, and not increased the joy: they joy before thee according to the joy in harvest, and as men rejoice when
they divide the spoil.
For thou hast broken the yoke of his burden, and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of Midian.
For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire.
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful,
Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to
establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
