Got Gloom?

We all know this Christmas verse thanks to GF Handel:

The people who walk in darkness Will see a great light; Those who live in a dark land, The light will shine on them. (Isaiah 9:2 NASB)

But look what comes right before it:

But there will be no more gloom for her who was in anguish; in earlier times He treated the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali with contempt, but later on He shall make it glorious, by the way of the sea, on the other side of Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles. (Isaiah 9:1 NASB)

I love this – Jesus living in Galilee of the Gentiles – making it glorious – but check the beginning

No more gloom for her who was in anguish.

Are you in anguish?

Are you living in gloom?

Are you stuck in a dark land – a dark place?

Christmas is here to break the gloom – break the anguish.

Ok – that was a bit mushy – how 'bout this:

Jesus was born, lived, and died a cruel death to break the gloom with an astonishing light. [Tweet This]

BenTurn on the light!

See you again soon.

    Amen! I am so thankful for the light of God. I am trusting Him to dispel the hopelessness tonight as I minister to a family who has just lost their son. I so need His light and carry it with me into a battle for souls.
