Day 14 | Prophecy of the Lion and the Lamb Resting Together

Day 14 | Prophecy of the Lion and the Lamb Resting Together

Isaiah 11:6-10

Devotion

There are so many mean things in our world today.  People can be so cruel and selfish. 

This is not how God meant for things to be.  Before Adam and Eve disobeyed God, people got along well with each other.  Even the animal world was at peace.  Everything was in the right place and life was good.

When Adam and Eve disobeyed God, problems came.  They blamed each other.  Shame and guilt entered God’s perfect world.

In our world today, we still see all these bad things and more.  But one day God will make things right again, the way He intended them to be. 

The Bible even says the lion and the lamb will lay down and rest together.  Now that is peace!  We will enjoy the rest God intended us to have.  All of this will take place when Jesus reigns on earth as the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.

Once again, the world will be at peace and we will rest.  Everything will be in the right place and life will be good…. better than good; it will be great!

Memory Verse | Isaiah 11:10b

His rest shall be glorious. Isaiah 11:10b

Questions

  • God created the world, including people, good.  What went wrong?

  • Do most people think about what is best for themselves or best for others?

  • How will God make things right again?” (Hint: it is through a person)

  • How do you think God wants us to treat other people?

Prayer

Father, we know there are many bad things in this world.  We see people being mean to others and living in selfish ways.  Thank you that one day, Jesus will return to earth and make things right again.  Until that day may we love You and love other people well.
