Gift #1143: Coming Down

For when you did awesome things that we did not expect,
    you came down,
 Since ancient times no one has heard,
    no ear has perceived,
no eye has seen any God besides you,
    who acts on behalf of those who wait for him. 

In that day they will say, “Surely this is our God;
    we trusted in him, and he saved us.
This is the Lord, we trusted in him;
    let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.”

For in perfect faithfulness
    you have done wonderful things,
    things planned long ago.

Isaiah 64:3-4; 25:1, 9

Today for Christmas I wanted to share with you these verses that I’ve been pondering on during Advent.  They are from the book of Isaiah, which is my favorite book of the Bible.  On Christmas we celebrate the awe-inspiring miracle of God becoming flesh, of Infinity entering time and space, of the Everlasting One being born.  He came down…. He dwells with us.  The longer I spend thinking about the import of those words, the more precious and incredible they become.  Surely He has worked wonders among us.  He has come down, He has acted for us because He loves us, and He has secured our salvation.  Let us rejoice!

I hope wherever you are on this Christmas evening, that your heart will be filled with peace and joy.  Merry Christmas! God is with us!

Blessings to you,

Sarah
