Key Verse: Isaiah 9:6 “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
What an impressive and beautiful description of our Lord Jesus Christ!
Many people have yet to experience the wonders of Christ but once they have experienced it, they shall remember Him forever. Count the many wonderful works that God has done in your life: your salvation, health, family, career, ministry, friends, etc.
Psalms 107:8 “Oh that men would praise the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men!”
We may have many counselors in our lives but Jesus Christ should be our final and most reliable counselor in every decision that we make. No small decision is ever too small for Christ as even the biggest decision in our lives He can help us to decide.
1 Corinthians 1:30 “But of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:”
3. The mighty God
Christ is the mighty or powerful God in both heaven and earth and there is no other might or power beside Him.
Matthew 28:18 “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.”
4. The everlasting Father
Thank God that Jesus Christ is our everlasting Father who is with us throughout the ages to come. Unlike our earthly father who is with us for a season, Jesus Christ is our everlasting Father who will help us in everything for all eternity.
Romans 8:15 “For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.”
5. The Prince of Peace
In this world of war, conflicts and chaos, He is the Prince of Peace within our hearts and one day, He shall rule in His kingdom and we shall reign with Him in perfect peace.
John 16:33 “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
Food for Thought
How can you be fearful of the future when you have such a great God!
