“For a child is born to us,
a son is given to us.
The government will rest on his shoulders.
And he will be called:
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
His government and its peace
will never end.
He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David
for all eternity.”
- Isaiah 9:6-7 NLT
Today, I encourage you to read over this passage of scripture several times, taking time to think through each phrase.
Thank God that he sent his son to us, to come as Emmanuel, God with us, to die for our sins and reconcile us back to God.
Thank God that the government rests on his shoulders, not on human shoulders!
Thank God that he is our Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and our Prince of Peace.
Thank God that his rule and peace will never end.
Thank God that he is fair and just and that he will rule for all eternity!
