If you yield to the Lord, God will do more with you than what you embrace with your conscious mind alone. When Isaiah made this famous prophecy about the virgin to Ahaz, king of Judah, he wanted to assure the king, frightened about the power of enemies all about, that a little child to come would be the source of victory. However Isaiah’s prophecy reaches deep into the very center of the future; it is the Messiah of whom he speaks. Though the rest of the chapter speaks of devastation, Ahaz, you and I need to remember the name given to the child of promise to come: Immanuel: “God-with-us.” The child of the Virgin Mary is the spark igniting the new fire of God’s powerful intercession against every enemy in all history. Jesus has come. Trust in his power, even though for you, as for Ahaz, times of loss and trial may be coming against you.
