One of the verses in O Come, O Come, Emmanuel finds its inspiration in Isaiah 9:2 and Revelation 22:16. It goes like this:
O come, Thou Dayspring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And death’s dark shadows put to flight
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel, Shall come to thee, O Israel.
In Isaiah 9:7, we read that His kingdom will establish righteousness and justice. Justice. Great light.
- Today, write out all the areas of injustice you see around you. Write also injustice in your own life, ways that you have been wronged.
- Write out a prayer to the Lord of how you would like to see Him move in these areas and bring justice and righteousness. Really spend some time seeking Him, leaning into His presence. He sees the injustice, He sees you.
