Hope For Today
Daily Encouragement for a Healing Heart from the Word of God
Deep pain and brokenness have a way of making Bible study difficult. To help bridge the gap and re-ignite our hunger for the Word of God, we’ve put together a daily devotional designed to help us all lean into God as we heal. May we seek Him daily!
Let the morning bring me word of Your unfailing love for I have put my trust in You. Show me the way I should go, for to You I entrust my life. Psalms 143:8 (NIV)
- Hope For Today
December 1 – John 4:25-26
The woman said, "I know the Messiah is coming – the One who is called the Christ. When He comes, He will explain everything to us." Then Jesus told her, "I AM the Messiah!"It's December, and that means Christmas is coming! I think this season presents us with a wonderful opportunity to spend some time looking at what the Bible has to tell us about the promised Messiah. The first coming of Christ was not something that happened out of nowhere. The Jewish people knew it was coming! God had been promising His Savior since the very beginning, and Jesus was the fulfillment of each and every Messianic prophecy. Just as the woman at the well so confidently believed, He didn’t just come – He brought with Him understanding. Through the Word of God, the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ has explained everything to us. So, we're going to spend most of the month of December examining the prophecies of the Bible about the coming Messiah, and how Jesus Christ was the fulfillment of each one. As we do this, may we remember there are still many more prophesies assuring us He is coming again. The fact that Jesus came (just as the Scriptures said He would) the first time gives us reason to believe (and to set our hopes securely on the promise that) He will return. May our hope be renewed and may we live continually in eager anticipation of that glorious day! In the meantime, may we celebrate together another sacred day when our Lord and Savior left the glory of heaven and gave up all of His divine privilege to take on flesh. The day when the Creator of the universe confined Himself and all of His glory into the body of a tiny human baby. Let's celebrate that day when the great "I AM" lay in the lowly manger – the day Messiah came!
