"Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests." Luke 2:15
God desires for His creation to be at peace with each other and at peace with ourselves. For those who have God's favor, this peace rains down from heaven and "Oh, the Joy that floods our soul!"
How do you and I rest in the sweet spot of God's favor? Take a look at Isaiah 66:2:
“Heaven’s my throne, earth is my footstool. What sort of house could you build for me What holiday spot reserve for me? I made all this! I own all this!” God’s Decree. “But there is something I’m looking for: a person simple and plain, reverently responsive to what I say."
This Christmas, receive the gift of God's favor by seeking Him in simple, plain, reverent respect to His written word and His gift of The Word (Christ Jesus). Peace will come to you and soak you to those tired, worried, and weary bones.
