God's Words For US

God's Spirit Rests
Date Posted: January 20, 2023

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 .

Isaiah 11:2 (NKJV)

The words of the prophet Isaiah.

Isaiah gives us insight into the coming Messiah. In this verse he tells the people that the Spirit of God will be on this coming King.

Isaiah uses the phrase “rest upon Him”. Could this convey a picture of peace as opposed to animosity? God chose to send His Son to earth to help us learn of Himself and how to live with one another. His Son’s mission included teaching and healing. His motive for doing this was love for His son and for His people. He chose to do this in a peaceful, non-judgmental way.

No wonder God chose to let His Spirit rest on His Son.

Thank You, Father, for all You do for us, using the way of rest and peace to teach us the lessons You have for us. Amen.
