For unto us a Child is born
Isaiah 9:6 “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder, and His Name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace”
Jesus is the reason for the season of Christmas. Christ-mas. He is our Life.
This verse is so beautiful and powerful. Our Lord and Friend is wonderful and as we take time to ponder all He is to us, we can but stand in awe and wonder of the Father’s great love for us – He gave His Son.
Counselor – trusted advisor, wisdom and truth, and comfort and direction, can be found as we seek Him and His Word.
Mighty God – is anything too hard for the Lord? No! He is the Mighty Warrior Who saves.
Everlasting Father. How long is everlasting? Forever! He is our Father forever. What confidence comes as we contemplate that our Father is everlasting – no beginning and no end.
Prince of Peace – this Prince of Peace, our Lord and Friend, has come by His Spirit to dwell in our hearts as we invite Him in. We have access to peace that passes understanding; love that surpasses knowledge. His very Presence, all that He is, dwelling in us. Kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness.
Let us have confidence therefore, as we reflect in the Christmas season, and look to the new year of 2023, knowing that our God is working mightily in us.
May you know abundance of joy, peace and goodwill.
