Just realized I've never shared Trans-Siberian Orchestra... my bad.
Tonight's devotional is on preparing our hearts for Christ. But it's not on us to struggle and strive to prepare. He's the one preparing our hearts.
God owns and controls all things. And there is nothing that
he could give you for Christmas this year that would suit your
needs and your longings better than the consolation of Israel
and the redemption of Jerusalem, restoration for past losses
and liberation from future enemies, forgiveness and freedom,
pardon and power, healing the past and sealing the future.
If there is a longing in your heart this Advent for something
that the world has not been able to satisfy, might not this longing
be God’s Christmas gift preparing you to see Christ as consolation
and redemption and to receive him for who he really is?
