For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given, and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
God the Father thought enough of us to give us the perfect gift. A gift that would save us from our sins, show and teach us how to love, give peace and bring us joy. His gift would carry the burden and weights of many but alleviate heaviness in times of distress. The gift would be called many names, Wonderful -the gift whose ways are unexplainable, Counselor -the gift when wisdom is needed, Mighty God -the gift that gives strength and fights our battles, Everlasting Father -the gift who loves unconditionally and provides our needs, Prince of Peace -the gift who gives peace deep down in our souls when the storms of life are swirling all around us. God the Father knew that we would so desperately need this gift.
In this Christmas season of gift giving it’s easy to lose sight of its true meaning. As you prepare to spend time with family and friends for Christmas, let’s not forget the best gift that was given, the gift that cannot be purchased with money, the perfect gift is Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace. The gift is Jesus!
Have a blessed week.
