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.

Daily D – Jeremiah 35:12-14

Jeremiah 35:12-14 “This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Go and tell the people of Judah and those living in Jerusalem, ‘Will you not learn a lesson and obey my words?’ declares the Lord. ‘Jehonadab son of Rekab ordered his descendants not to drink wine and this command has been kept. To this day they do not drink wine, because they obey their forefather’s command. But I have spoken to you again and again, yet you have not obeyed me.”

Daily D – Jeremiah 32:17, 27; 33:3

Jeremiah 32:17 “Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.”

Daily D – Psalm 78:70-72

Psalm 78:70-72 He chose David his servant and took him from the sheep pens; from tending the sheep he brought him to be the shepherd of his people Jacob, of Israel his inheritance. And David shepherded them with integrity of heart; with skillful hands he led them.

Daily D – Jeremiah 29:13

Jeremiah 29:13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

Daily D – Jeremiah 23:20-22

Jeremiah 23:20-22 The anger of the Lord will not turn back until he fully accomplishes the purposes of his heart. In days to come you will understand it clearly. I did not send these prophets, yet they have run with their message; I did not speak to them, yet they have prophesied. But if they had stood in my council, they would have proclaimed my words to my people and would have turned them from their evil ways and from their evil deeds.
