In reading this passage today, I stumbled across a few verses in chapter nine that remind me of a song by Lincoln Brewster titled “Our God”. This song basically recaps Isaiah nine, singing about God working in the midst of our storms and there being light in the darkness.
It continues on to praise God, giving Him the credit, He deserves that His work is alive in us. There’s nothing above God or more powerful than Him.
Towards the end of the song, it recaps this verse, Isaiah 9:6-7 “For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. His government and its peace will never end.” This is a beautiful ending to the song, as it brings out the Son of God, predicted before Jesus is born.
Isaiah 9:2-3 “The people who walk in darkness will see a great light. For those who live in a land of deep darkness, a light will shine. You will enlarge the nation of Israel, and its people will rejoice.”
These verses show there is light in the darkness. God has NOT left you. He is preparing something greater. He is not done. Do you fully trust His plan for your life?
