All right then, the Lord himself will give you the sign. Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel (which means ‘God is with us’). Isaiah 7:14 NLT
In life people are always looking for signs. I’m sure people who lived one hundred years ago knew how to read the signs in the skies that told them that rain is coming. Sometimes, you listen to the prediction of the weather and you get outside and you wonder. But as the day progresses, the change begins to happen. The temperature begins to drop creating the weather for snow. The prophet Isaiah, told the people the Lord will give a sign. Sometimes sign posts can be misdirected by accidents or the power of nature. But when the Lord gives a sign, it stands firm.
Matthew 1:18 says, “Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit.” When man sinned and severed the relationship between God and man, God promised a redeemer. Isaiah also gave them His name: Immanuel. Now the purpose of a sign is to point you in the right direction. Then you choose to follow it or ignore it. The sign that points to Jesus Christ is still actively pointing the way to salvation.
Thought for Today: The sign still works. Follow it!
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
