A child is promised who will be victorious over the enemies of the southern kingdom of Judah. The child’s name, Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz, means “The spoil speeds, the prey hastens,” prophesying that Syria and the northern Kingdom of Israel would soon be destroyed by Assyria.
The Lord will give you all the resources you need to withstand any enemy. There will be “children” for you in one way or another, who will continue to bear the name Immanuel: “God-with-us.”
Immerse yourself in the presence of God until what is awesome in your life is not what is coming against you, but rather the One in whose sanctuary you find refuge and in whose presence you are at home.
