” Pass through, pass through the gates! Prepare the way for the people. Build up, build up the highway! Remove the stones . Raise a banner for the nations. The Lord has made proclamation to the ends of the earth: “say to Daughter Zion, “See, your Savior comes! See, his reward is with him, and his recompense accompanies him.” They will be called the Holy People, the Redeemed of the Lord; and you will be called Sought After, the City No Longer Deserted.”
Happy Advent! Today marks the beginning of the Advent season~ the preparation for remembering Christmas~ the birth of our Savior. I pray you are able to experience fully the hope, peace, love, and joy of the season of Christmas!
What does this weeks verse Isaiah 62:10-12 speak to your life? My prayer is that you hear that you have been sought after by our precious Savior who came first as a babe to redeem the world from sin’s grip. May you also hear that your Savior is making proclamation that he is coming again. Until his return he calls us to pass through the gates, build up the highway, remove the stones, and raise a banner for the nations in preparation for him coming again.
This Christmas season let’s walk through the Gates as his sought after and his redeemed ready to prepare for the Kingdom!
Will we do our part to build, clear obstacles, and raise a banner for the sought after to find there way to through the gates of hope, peace, love, and joy?I invite you to visit the Adore Series this Advent season for times of seasonal reflection. click here.
