A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit. The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him— the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the LORD— and he will delight in the fear of the LORD. He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes, or decide by what he hears with his ears; but with righteousness he will judge the needy, with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth. He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth; with the breath of his lips he will slay the wicked. Righteousness will be his belt and faithfulness the sash around his waist.
Scripture tells us that God's salvation plan for us is told by prophets and priests; through the Law and the Prophets. It is God's will that we would be in a great relationship with Him. Still we did not listen. As we will discover, God did not give up!
Thank you that you Found (this) One.
Thank Lord God Almighty for not giving up in working out our salvation. Help us to share your salvation plan. Amen.
