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.

2 Corinthians 3:17, 18 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
1 Corinthians 10:23, 24 “I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive. No one should seek their own good, but the good of others.
