Isaiah prophesied of the child to be born, “And the government will rest on His shoulders” (9:6).  If our Messiah’s shoulders are big enough to bear the burdens of governing the world, then they are big enough to help shoulder my little load.  His mind is adequate to help me sort out doing the just and right in the complexities of my life.  His heart seeks to establish His Father’s just rule everywhere and in all.  Partner with Him!  Lean on Him!

 “There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, On the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness From then on and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will accomplish this” Isa 9:7.
