“Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign;
Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son,
and shall call his name Immanuel.
Butter and honey shall he eat,
that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good.
For before the child shall know to refuse the evil, and choose the good,
the land that thou abhorrest shall be forsaken of both her kings.
The Lord shall bring upon thee, and upon thy people,
and upon thy father’s house,
days that have not come, from the day that Ephraim departed from Judah;
even the king of Assyria.”
– Isaiah 7:14-17 KJV
This passage amazes me! You, Jesus, gave up even the knowledge to know to refuse evil, and choose good. And the fact that things happened in the land where You grew up before You learned to know, let’s me know You allowed Yourself to be completely at the mercy of Your authority figures and society too. You do understand far more than I give You credit for. And butter and honey, what’s so special about them? I thought butter was bad for us? It must be one of those moderation things. 😉
My Day 1 of the Christmas 31 Day Scripture Writing Plan.
I won’t have notes for each day.
I am doing whatever You allow, Lord.
Whatever You give! It’s all about You!
