For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this. Isaiah 9:6-7 (NIV)
There is no doubt about that. There is no doubt about what? You are as described. You are as you are called. You are as you are named. How am I described and called and named? You are the Son that has been given. You came into this world to be the Savior of the world. You came into this world to be the Lord of all who would receive as their Savior. Most importantly, at least in my opinion you came into this world to be my Savior and Lord. You lived and died for me. Your death of the cross paid for my sin. Your blood cleansed my unrighteous. You made it so I could be righteous in your sin. You set me apart, so I could love and follow and serve you as my Savior and Lord. On top of that, as a guarantee of my inheritance in heaven with you, you filled me with your Holy Spirit. So now, I am receiving your wonderful counsel. You are guiding me through life. You are leading me to where you want me to go and giving me what you want me to do for you. In that I delight. It is my joy and pleasure to follow and serve you. That is very good. I am not finished answering your question. Keep on going. You are Mighty God and Everlasting Father. That is an awesome combination. How so? As Mighty God, you are all powerful, all knowing and ever present. Nothing escapes your notice. Nothing takes you by surprise. Nothing is out of your control. As Everlasting Father, you love and care for me. You hear and answer my prayers. You are my refuge in life. You are my shelter in every storm. You lead me through every twist and turn and up and down in life. As Wonderful Counselor and Prince of Peace, I can take comfort in you. You are the gracious and generous giver of wisdom. You fill me with your peace, that is incomprehensibly beyond explanation, even as I go through trials and adversity in life. You are guarding and guiding me as I walk through life with you as I eagerly await the day that I will come to live forever in your Heavenly Kingdom. That will be a great and glorious day! Yes, it will. Thank you, Lord, for being as described.
Lord, thank you for coming into this world to be my Savior. You are my Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. I know I can rely on your help throughout my life. I look forward to coming to live forever in heaven with you. Amen
