Many of us may have found ourselves in situation where everyone around us expects us to believe in God but we just don’t feel it ourselves.  In this situation maybe we knew of our doubts but were too afraid to admit it, so we just talked a good talk and coasted under the radar as best we could.  King Ahaz of Judah found himself in such a position… but as the pressures of being king pushed in against him, his lack of faith became evident.  But God will speak to this doubtful king and as he does he gives one of the most famous Christmas prophecies.
