Morning by Morning, December 15 - "Good News of Great Joy!"

Morning by Morning, December 15 - "Good News of Great Joy!"
Good morning, Lord Jesus. Let Your light shine in my heart and through my life today -- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit of God.  ...
"In that region there were shepherds living in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. Then an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, 'Do not be afraid; for see -- I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people:  to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord!'" (Luke 2:8-11)
"Good news of great joy for all the people!" -- that's Your heart and Your purpose for this season we call Christmas. God with us -- "Emmanuel" -- bringing salvation and hope, light from our darkness, good news of great joy for all!
So while we can be honest and real about any darkness that surrounds us or even any darkness that remains within us, let us not get stuck in discouragement or disappointment or despair. While we can acknowledge any loneliness or anxiety, confusion or fear, You invite us all to lift up our heads and open up our hearts to welcome You in as our Savior, our Messiah, our Lord. 
Like the shepherds in the field, we can respond to the word of the Lord and the hope of heaven to say, "Let us go now to Bethlehem and see this thing that has taken place, which the Lord has made known to us!" (v. 15) Let this thing that has taken place become a living encounter today and every day with the One who's come take His place in our hearts. Truly this is the good news of great joy You have for us all! In Jesus' name pray. Amen.

Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
My Friend, I pray you are filled with the great joy that comes from hearing and embracing of the good news of God's heart for you and His longing to fill you with His Presence -- Emmanuel, God with us -- in Jesus' name! Please pray the same of me. God bless you, my friend!
Friends, please keep us in prayer today as our Board of Directors of Rapha God Ministries meets to pray and to plan and then our ministry volunteers and prayer warriors celebrate Christmas together! God bless you and Merry Christmas!

Isa 52:7-8 ESV

How beautiful upon the mountains
are the feet of him who brings good news,
who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness,
who publishes salvation,
who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.”

The voice of your watchmen—they lift up their voice;
together they sing for joy;
for eye to eye they see
the return of the LORD to Zion.
