Stop And Turn To God Today For Your Needs

Speaker:

Sometimes Bible verses become so familiar that we gloss over them without applying them in a practical way to our lives. Isaiah 9:6 is one of those.  It reads,

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.

We generally assign that verse to the Christmas season, for it prophesies the coming of our Savior some 700 years before the event happened. But look again and you may find exactly what you need this very day, for that verse contains four different names for our Lord.

For instance, do you need wisdom and guidance today? He is your “Wonderful Counselor,” who has all knowledge and sees the end from the beginning. Let Him advise you which path to take.

Perhaps you need a big job done that no one else can do. Remember that He is your “Mighty God,” who has all power in heaven and in earth.

Or maybe you’re hurting right now, and you need God’s comfort and care. Isaiah says He is your “Everlasting Father,”—more loving than the best of earthly father could be. He will never stop being your Everlasting Father, for He has promised never to leave you—ever, ever.

If, however, your heart is in turmoil over the circumstances you’re facing, you need the “Prince of Peace,” who can bring the calmness you so desperately want.

Friend, don’t wait until Christmas to let Him be to you the Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace. Turn to Him today as the source of all you need.
