Isaiah foretold the Light of the world.
Week 1 - A theme of Hope
The first Sunday of Advent. The prophet Isaiah spoke in Isaiah 7:14, "Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel." This of course didn't happen immediately following the words of the prophet, there were years and years of silence as God's people awaited the coming of the Messiah. The story of Jesus's birth gives us assurance and joy, because even though the waiting lingered for decades, God broke through at just the right time. This week our daily devotions will focus on the theme of hope.
