“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.” Isaiah 9:6
I think that the word, “father” can remind some of us of a hole that we have because of our earthly father. But our Heavenly father is so much more than any father on earth, whether bad or good, can be. Think about the words in a different way.
Everlasting: forever, never failing, unending, constant
Father: protector, care-giver, source of love
How wonderful is it that we have someone who can be all of these things for us, all of the time? Just ponder about who God really is for a moment today.
God, You are my constant protector, my unfailing source of love. I thank You that You are all of these things in my life and more. I am so grateful of all that You are for me. I want others to know Your awesome love as well. Help me to use this special time of year to tell and show others about Your love and the real reason You sent Your Son to earth. Amen.
