Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. – Is 9:7

What a promise! God was telling His people that a Messiah was coming, who would establish justice all over the world! His Kingdom would last forever, and there would be peace until the end of time! And how was it going to happen? The zeal of the Lord of hosts would perform it.

Zeal works. Passion performs! Being zealous gets things done! God’s passion would accomplish everything He had promised!

What are you passionate about? The more passion you have, the better your performance will be! Are you passionate for the things of God? Your effectiveness for the Kingdom depends on it!

Not passionate? Don’t panic. Ask God to make you zealous for the things that make Him zealous! Ask Him to move your heart for the things that move His! Passion is a gift; and once you have it, you will wake up every morning more motivated than ever!

Prayer:

Father, make me zealous! Make me passionate for the things You care about. I don’t want to waste my time and energy on anything that doesn’t move You. Move me, and motivate me to seek Your Kingdom, in Jesus’ name!
