Bible Verse of the Day, Dec. 8th: Advent Season, Isaiah 11:1-10

by | Dec 8, 2022 | Bible Study, Spirit-Led Living

Isaiah 11:1-10

And there shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse,
and a Branch shall grow out of his roots.
The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him,
the Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
the Spirit of counsel and might,
the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.

He shall delight in the fear of the Lord,
and he shall not judge by what his eyes see,
nor reprove by what his ears hear;
but with righteousness he shall judge the poor,
and reprove with fairness for the meek of the earth.
He shall strike the earth with the rod of his mouth,
and with the breath of his lips he shall slay the wicked.
Righteousness shall be the belt of his loins,
and faithfulness the belt about his waist.

The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb,
and the leopard shall lie down with the young goat,
and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together;
and a little child shall lead them.
The cow and the bear shall graze;
their young ones shall lie down together;
and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
The nursing child shall play by the hole of the asp,
and the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper’s den.
They shall not hurt or destroy
in all My holy mountain,
for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord,
as the waters cover the sea.

In that day there shall be a Root of Jesse, who shall stand as a banner to the peoples. For him shall the nations seek. And his rest shall be glorious.

Consult the Word of God

God gave Israel two ways of obtaining instruction, wisdom, and revelation—God’s written Word and God’s prophetic word. God sent His prophets and His Son that you might have the Bible, the logos or living Word, so that you would know His ways through experience. But He also inspired His prophets to write the Bible so you can know His wisdom and statutes. You read the Bible to understand God’s laws, the history of His people, and His nature. His revelation, however, comes from His presence, which you acquire primarily through prayer. It is only through prayer that you receive revelation that is particular to you as an individual. It is through prayer you receive the specific instructions and stratagems to fight the battles in your part of the overall war for righteousness on the earth. It is through prayer that God gives a fresh word specific to your current situations and reveals to you where you are in His plan for your life. He can give you the intelligence you need to succeed. As God downloads to you the alliances, gatekeepers, and territorial spirits, you must consult with the Word of God in order to acquire the schematic and pattern that reveals the original plans and purposes of God, and then pray accordingly. {eoa}
