RE Verse reading–Isaiah 10:5-27, 11:1-10 (day seven) “The Spirit of the Lord will rest upon him–the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding . . . of counsel and of power. . . of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord” (11:2) As Isaiah peers ahead and sees the coming Messiah, he notices something unique. The Spirit of the Lord will REST on Him. Unlike us who grieve and quench the Spirit (1 Thessalonians 5:18), Jesus would be a permanent home to the Spirit. Being at home, the Spirit would bear in Christ the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22). Did Jesus need the Spirit? Yes! He was fully man! Like us, He had to be led by the Spirit (Mark 1:12) Like us, He had to be filled. (Ephesians 5:18) “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word; and my father will love him and we will come to him and make our abode with him.” (John 14:23) Friends, is the Spirit of God at home in our hearts?
