Isaiah 9:6 NLT  For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace.

In a dark world there is a deep yearning to have hope that someone will bring light.  The prophet Isaiah spoke of the Messiah coming in a form of a child but with authority, wisdom, the covering that would be forever, and ruler of peace.

The Messiah is Jesus the Christ.  The hope that we yearn for can only be found in Christ.  You cannot change the darkness in the world with your power.   God sent His Son Jesus the Christ to bring the deliverance from sin (darkness).  Everyone who will believe can find this hope.
