S – “The scepter will not depart from Judah or the staff from between his feet 

until he whose right it is comes and the obedience of the peoples belongs to him. 

Genesis 49:10 CSB

O – Amazing that prophetic words about the Savior are spoken over 1,000 years prior to his arrival.  It validates the title “Lion of the Judah.”  Interesting that Israel would prophesy over each of his sons and it came true.  

A – God had a plan for Jesus’ arrival a long time ago.  He knew that sin had to be dealt with and a savior was needed.  It makes me grateful and confident that his plan is real and works in dealing with my own sin.  I can trust in Him.

R – Lord, help me to do this.
