And the Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD. And his delight shall be in the fear of the LORD. He shall not judge by what his eyes see, or decide disputes by what his ears hear, Isaiah 11:2-3 ESV

What happens when the Spirit of the Lord comes down?

According to Isaiah, the Messiah will reveal things as they truly are and begin to reveal the desires of God. The Messiah will bring about justice and equity for others, and judge with fairness and impartiality. He will reveal God’s desire for His people to live in holy reverence of Him. He will also address the systems and laws that can harm others.

You are living in the tension between what God desires for this world and what this world is apart from God’s wisdom, understanding, and justice. The world is not run according to the fear of God. It’s more likely that people want to get away with what they can for as long as they can.

The wisdom and knowledge of God that the Messiah brings is fully aware of God’s power and justice. Such fear of God recognizes that you will reap what you sow soon enough, so it is best to live obediently and to delight in God’s commands.

Prayer: Lord, help me see the wisdom and joy of Your ways so that I will receive the reward of the righteous.
