Intentional Advent: Day 9

You are invited to participate in An Intentional Advent! Julie Kay Harbour and Leona Dalavai Scott are teaming up to put together this series on thoughtful and intentional ways to prepare our hearts for the Savior’s birth.

As part of an Intentional Advent, we are looking at some of the prophecies Jesus’s birth fulfilled. By definition, “prophecy” means something a prophet declares, especially a divinely inspired prediction, instruction, or exhortation. Our first prophecy we looked at is that a Virgin would give birth to a son and His name is Jesus.

Today, we will look at the prophecy that Jesus would be born in Bethlehem. In Micah 5:2, we see the prophecy revealed and in Luke 2:4-7, we see it fulfilled. I encourage you to read these passages for your advent reading for today.

As I reflect on these two passages, I’m reminded that even though the prophecy revealed and the prophecy fulfilled happened several hundred years apart, God had a plan to send a Savior who would save His people from their sins.

As Julie wrote earlier, this week’s Advent theme is Peace. God fulfilling His promise that a Savior would be born in Bethlehem brings peace knowing I can trust God to fulfill His promises.

What is a truth or a promise God has fulfilled in the Bible you cling to?
