Read Isaiah 9:6–7
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 greatness 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.
- What does it mean that Jesus is the Wonderful Counselor? How have you experienced His counsel? What counsel do you need from Him?
Father, thank You that Jesus fulfilled these words of Isaiah—that He is the Wonderful Counselor. I pray that I would experience His counsel tangibly. Help me know how to ask for what I need and to submit to Your will for me. Amen.
