My Journal for Today: Today’s Our Daily Bread devotional entry, authored by Dave Branon, in this Advent season, which heralds and celebrates the birth of the Savior of mankind, we are reminded of the miraculous birth which was foretold by God well over a millennium before it occurred in history (see Genesis 3: 15). It is the single most significant event in human history because it brought about God’s plan of victory over sin and death with God’s Son dying on the cross, … fulfilling all the prophesies of the Messiah coming (see today’s highlight passage linked above in Isaiah, Chapters 7 and 53).
So, as we go through this Advent season, I pray that we all have the HALLELUJAH spirit, thanking God for His wondrous gift, Who now resides in the hearts of all who have surrendered to him in faith.
Yes, … Jesus is EMMANUEL, … God in us! And let us sing, as Carrie Underwood does, linked above, …
“Hark the herald Angels sing, … GLORY TO THE NEWBORN KING!!!
My Prayer for Today … Lord, … Today I sing in praise of Your coming to save me and all of mankind!!! … HALLELUJAH!! … HALLELUJAH!!! Amen
