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

This verse is often used during the holidays.  I love it when little Linus recites it in the Peanuts Christmas movie.  Are you confused?  Are you at a circumstantial fork in the road?  This verse has a promise for you:  He is your Wonderful Counselor.  He can counsel you in your confusion and set you on the right path.  Are you weak? Do you feel like if any more weight is put on your back, the ice beneath you will break?  This verse has a promise for you:  He is your Mighty God.  He will hold you up with His right hand, you may tremble on the rock, but the rock will never tremble on you. Are you lonely?  Do you have crowds but no companionship? This verse has a promise for you:  He is your Everlasting Father.  He wants you to come to Him, and He will be your friend, your father, your family.  You will never feel alone when He walks beside you.  Are you disheartened because there is nothing but turmoil on your calendar?  Do you go home to discontentment every night?  This verse has a promise for you:  He is your Prince of Peace.  He is the author, the creator, the designer of a peaceful heart.  And since pure peace is His, if He is a part of you, His perfect peace is too.  He lives in you so that you may live joyfully by day and sleep restfully by night.  I pray this Christmas verse becomes a daily verse….for who you are and for what you need.
