verse 2: The people in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.
This entire passage is so lovely and so comforting. Isaiah was able to let Israel know about Jesus. Who heard him and understood and was comforted? We have the benefit of knowing the truth behind these words. I am filled with thankfulness today. God is moving me, and I am listening for Him.
Lord, during this season of Advent, when the world is under the shadow of a pandemic, your light shines through everything. Please, God, soften hearts and open eyes that have not noticed your presence, or have tried to ignore it. Show me my part, help me to see. Amen
