Isaiah 9:6 (NKJV)
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.
Both God And Man
As Christmas approaches, many people turn their attention to the One who came to deliver us from sin forever. Isaiah 9:6 tells us that He was born, speaking of His humanity, and He was given, reminding us that He is deity.
In calling Jesus the Wonderful Counselor, Isaiah is reminding us that we can come to Him for the same kind of wisdom a loyal subject would seek from a ruling king.
When we enter into His courts, we recognise that we are the subjects of a Great Ruler who sees everything in His Kingdom and knows how to best rule over it all. We can bring our questions and concerns to Him, and we can seek His divine and eternal guidance with confidence that He will direct us in the very best way.
He is Both God And Man
When we seek the Lord’s royal wisdom and guidance, we participate with Him in changing our hearts and our emotions. When we consult with Him and allow Him to reign as our Lord we gain an inside track advantage to joyful and abundant living in Him.
I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word. When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer. There’s nothing that’s too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!
