Daily D – Isaiah 9:6
Isaiah 9:6 For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us, and the government will be on his shoulders. He will be named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. (CSB)
Sometimes simple messages say more than the individual words and phrases alone can bear.
“A child will be born to us.” Among the joys of this life is the birth of our children and grandchildren. God says through Isaiah that a child will come in the ordinary way.
“A son will be given to us.” Here is something more. Not only will this child be born as all children are, but he will also be given, he will be a gift, he will be different, unique, one of a kind.
“He will be named Wonderful Counselor.” He will bear wisdom without limit.
“He will be named . . . Mighty God.” He will have the power necessary to turn wisdom into executable action.
“He will be named . . . Eternal Father.” He will be the source of every good and perfect gift.
“He will be named . . . Prince of Peace.” His object is not subjection but release into the glorious freedom of a deep and abiding relationship created and sustained by his perfect love.
Jesus always knew what to say. Jesus always knew what to do. Jesus always provided what was needed in every moment. Jesus always exercised the appropriate measure and approach of loving behavior.
Jesus said, “Whatever you ask in my name, I will do it so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it,” (John 14:13, 14).
What measure of wisdom do you require for this day?
What strength do you need for what is before you?
What resource is necessary to complete your purposeful tasks?
What measure of peace is missing from your heart and mind?
Jesus is the solution to each of these problems. Jesus is the repository of all we need. Jesus is the answer to all of our questions. Jesus is ready to say Yes to whatever you ask that helps others see how good God is.
I will trust Jesus for everything I need.
Our Father, you made promises. You kept them. You displayed your glory in Jesus. You continue displaying your glory as you meet our every need. You display your glory as you extend your kingdom through us. Thank you for providing more than a gift to unwrap on special days. Thank you for giving us more than we could have asked for and all that we need in Jesus. Amen.

Psalm 139:17, 18 How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!
2 Corinthians 5:1-5 For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands. We grow weary in our present bodies, and we long to put on our heavenly bodies like new clothing. For we will put on heavenly bodies; we will not be spirits without bodies. While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but it’s not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life. God himself has prepared us for this, and as a guarantee he has given us his Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 10:13 The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.
