Isaiah 35:1-10; Psalm 146:5-10; James 5:7-10; Matthew 11:2-11
By Bev Hinseth

In Isaiah, chapter 35, verses 1-10: We can be glad, receive joy – rejoice and be strong in the Lord. We are not to fear – He can remove sorrow. These are powerful verses we can claim.

In Psalm 146:5-10: There is hope in the Lord. He feeds the hungry and sets the prisoners free. We can be in prison in our lives in many ways. Ask God to free you and me, no matter what it may be. Our God is a mighty and powerful God.

In James 5:7-10: God wants us to be patient until the Lord’s coming which can be very soon. The Lord’s coming is near. The signs are clear. During these very troubled times, hold onto Jesus Christ. He is our only hope. Be strong in him.

In Matthew 11:2-11: John the Baptist was in prison and heard what Christ was doing. He sent the disciples to ask him, “Are you the one who was to come, or should we expect someone else?” Jesus answered, “Go to John to report what you hear and see. The blind see, the lame walk, leprosy cured, deaf hear, dead are raised, and good news is preached to the poor.”

What wonderful promises are in God’s Word. As the wonderful hymn goes, “Soon and very soon, we are going to see the King.” Alleluia, praise His wonderful name.

Have a blessed Christmas and don’t get caught up in the manmade, tinsel Christmas. King Jesus is real and is coming very soon.
