“Oh for a thousand tongues to sing my great Redeemer’s praise, the glories of my God and King, the triumphs of his grace!” – The United Methodist Hymnal #57 Verse 1

Charles Wesley penned the words to the first verse of this great hymn in 1739. There are 24 verses in our hymnal and many more in other repositories. One of my seminary professors held up the words to this hymn as a full outline of Wesleyan theology. Imagine for a moment that you are part of a 1,000 tongue choir enthusiastically singing God’s praises! Lord, let me begin each day by praising you with a full and grateful heart.

“For to us a child is born … and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” – Isaiah 9:6

God's word to us today was spoken by the prophet Isaiah 700 years before it happened! And yet the child was born. We did not recognize who He was until we heard and accepted His coming into our daily lives. Renew your commitment to follow the Prince of Peace.

“Speak tenderly to Jerusalem. Tell her that her sad days are gone and her sins are pardoned.” – Isaiah 40:2

The news is a constant reminder of what has gone wrong in our world. Yet with God's watchful care over us, let us never forget that “though the world seems oft so wrong, God is the ruler yet.” Do not focus on your failures, but on the promise of God's presence.

“The glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all people shall see it together.” – Isaiah 40:5.

With the rush of everyday life, is it any wonder that so many do not believe there is a God who cares? Our concern must not be for God to fix everything and make it right again. What if we went to God with life’s broken pieces and placed all of our fear and trust in His hands?

In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord. Then I said, “I am doomed for I am a sinful man.” – Isaiah 6:1-5

Darkness does not have to produce fear. To those who have walked in darkness, we should seek the light in our lives and share it. How secure it feels when someone turns on a lamp, and you realize that you are not alone after all. God's love is there for you!
