Advent Devotional: Tuesday, December 4

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. (Isaiah 9:7)

The Prophet Isaiah tells us that Christ's government and peace will increase forever. But we often fail in our faith by "writing people off." We refuse to believe that the government and peace of the Lord can hold sway over the "hard cases," and that people who begin as hostile towards Him can enjoy the benefits of living in His Kingdom if they will simply come to Him.

Lord, help us to believe that Your government and peace will spread over even the "hard cases!"
