Happy Hanukkah

Just wanted to wish those celebrating Hanukkah, a Happy Hanukkah.

I hope that you are able to enjoy time with friends and family.

For Christians, who do not celebrate Hanukkah, I would encourage you to look into the history of the holiday, for it is one that Jesus would have celebrated. In John 10:22, Jesus is said to go to Jerusalem for the Feast of Dedication.

One thing that strikes me concerning the Festival of Lights is the eight days. They had enough oil for one night of purification, and it took eight days to create the oil so the Lord allowed the oil to last eight days.

Seven is considered the number of perfection; the number of God.
Eight is the number of infinity - for laid on its side, it is the symbol of infinity.

As you think through the holidays during this season, consider the infinite ways that God provides for us and consider how His perfect plans are fulfilled always.

Happy Hanukkah.
