1. Despite political unrest and turmoil, God reminds the people of His faithfulness toward them in the words of Isaiah: “Hear now, you house of David! Is it not enough to try the patience of men? Will you try the patience of God also? Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call Him Immanuel” (Isaiah 7:13–14). Isaiah’s words also refer to God’s gift of His Son, God with us, as the Savior of the world (see Matthew 1:23). In what ways do people today try the patience of God regarding this great gift?
