Christmas — A Child is Born!

Day 2244: Opportunities and challenges abound! Be aware and act!

Scripture: For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace! Isaiah 9:6  

Thoughts/questions: Yesterday, I started on this verse with Wonderful Counselor, and today realized I needed to back up a bit! A Child is born!

The supernatural again displayed in the natural. Many ‘educated’ folks point to scientific explanations of ALL phenomena stating that they are not created miracles, but merely the result of natural causes. From love to sunsets to the entire universe, God’s supernatural work is displayed, yet a natural process is used.

Had all or even some of His supernatural work been completely unexplainable scientifically and obviously a miracle of the Supreme Being, no faith would be required. Yet, God IS the supernatural Source of all that is natural!

Even with Jesus, God used the natural process of birth and childhood to effect the greatest miracle ever! Not ‘a’ child, but THE Child! The Almighty, Living God of the universe born naturally! (Well, maybe the virgin part to get Him started is a bit different!!!)

There could be no other way, as Jesus could not have just ‘appeared’ either. THE Child still had to enter like any other child, but that should in no way discount the WONDER of Christmas!

AND this Child was sent to us! Wow!!!

Suggested prayer: Almighty God, yet a baby. Lord, this is too wonderful for me to comprehend. You are too Awesome for me . . . 


  1. Good stuff, my love amote
