Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God


"And his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace (Isa. 9:6).

About twenty-six hundred years ago Isaiah came with a message of hope for a hopeless world. This hope was wrapped up in the person of Jesus Christ---the long-looked for Messiah, the Savior of mankind.

The greatness of His Person is revealed in His name. Isaiah wrote, "his name shall be called WONDERFUL." He is wonderful in Himself, in His Word, in His works. He is wonderful for WHO HE is, the Son of God. God said, "This is my BELOVED SON, in whom I am well pleased" (Matt. 3:17). He is wonderful for what He did for us. "Who loved me, and gave Himself up for me" (Gal. 2:20).

He is wonderful in His counsel to us, for He is the source of all knowlege and wisdom. "In whom are hid the treasures of all wisdom and knowlege" (Col. 2:3). People sometimes give counsel, but He, the wonderful Counselor, always gives the right guidance for each situation.

AS the MIGHTY GOD all power belongs to Him. No need is too great for Him. Not only does He feel our difficulties with us, but goes beyond and acts on our behalf. It has been said that we have only proved the sufficiency of God when we have asked of Him the impossible. He who is wonderful is our Mighty God.

He, the EVERLASTING FATHER, is the Father of eternity whose plans and purposes are everlasting. As His child, we have a place in His eternal plan.

He is the PRINCE of PEACE, administering His peace to confused hearts in a confused world. "For He is our peace" (Eph. 2:14)

JESUS---What a name! "And His name shall be called WONDERFUL." "and you are to give him the name Jesus,because he will save his people from their sins" (Matt. 1:21).

The more intimately we know Him, the deeper our trust in Him. "Those who know your name will trust in you" (Ps. 9:10).

May the living presence of the One who is called Wonderful fill our hearts and minds with His peace and joy today...

Have a great weekend, and a blessed worship time tomorrow.....Love mark Phil. 4:11
