It Starts with a Conversation

Advent Conversation Four from Isaiah 9:  “Out of Ordinary and Into God’s Extraordinary Plan!”

Out of Ordinary and Into God’s Extraordinary Plan!

First, Seek Him...

As we conclude our Advent series, this week we talk about how God does what He says He will do. He is eager – or, “zealous” – to accomplish His extraordinary plan for salvation and for our lives. What is God doing in YOUR life right now? Seek Him about this today!

...Then Speak Him

The holidays are such great family times. Talk to the next generation about YOUR Jesus Story, about what God is doing in you. Encourage those entrusted to you that our zealous God is work in their lives, too! What a great conversation topic to end the year!

Isaiah 9:7
“…the zeal of the Lord of Hosts will accomplish this.”

Word

God, what are you saying to me through this Scripture?

We get excited about Christmas, but God is even more enthusiastic about it! He saw our needs, He promised to send a Savior, and then He zealously accomplished His plan. His “zeal” is His passion; it’s what He feels about what’s important to Him. We matter to God, which is why He was “zealous” or passionate about our salvation. This is the very reason He sent Jesus! ~ What are you passionate about? What does it make you feel to know that God is passionate about you? What did God “accomplish” at Christmas for us?

Why

God, why does this matter?

In Isaiah 9, God revealed to Isaiah and the people of Israel what He was going to do:  He promised to send a Son, a Savior. The Christmas story is about how He accomplished that very thing. God does what He says He will do. This matters because it means we can depend on Him to fulfill His promises. ~ What are you depending on God for right now? Is there a promise you’re holding on to? Is God faithful to His promises?

What

God, What Else Does Your Word Say About This?

God doesn’t get sidetracked, off course or defeated. He does what He says He will do, including the work He is doing in and through us. Scripture says: “Being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:6). Scripture also says, “The One who calls you is faithful, and He will do it” (1 Thessalonians 5:24). What incredible promises that are part of God’s extraordinary plan for YOU! ~ So, what is God doing in YOUR life right now? What does His Word promise you about this? How does the Christmas story help you know He’ll finish what He started?

Worship

God, How do you want me to respond to this truth?

Living for God is anything but ordinary. Our God is zealous for and passionate about us! He says who He says He is, and He will do what He says He will do, including every part of His extraordinary plan for us. What great reasons to celebrate at Christmas and always! ~ Scripture says, “Praise Him for His powerful acts; praise Him for His abundant greatness,” (Psalm 150:2). Let’s do this right now as we light our final Advent candle and finish this series!

Isaiah 9:7
“…the zeal of the Lord of Hosts will accomplish this.”

A Family Blessing

A Blessing from this Lesson to Speak over Those God has Entrusted to You!

Just as you anticipate Christmas, may you anticipate all God has promised to do in your life as you follow Him. He has extraordinary plans for you, so may you never settle for the ordinary. In Jesus’ Name, amen!
