A Child Is Born

Isaiah 9:6
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Wonderful Counselor
When everything around us seems upside down and we have no earthly wisdom, we have a Wonderful Counselor born as one of us who has experienced what we have and more. 
It is His council that we seek in  times of confusion.

Mighty God,  
God who spoke our very being into existence. 
A God who knit us together in our mothers womb,
knows the number of hairs on our head. 
This same God, born unto us as a child.

Everlasting Father, 
continuing indefinitely. 
No matter when, no matter where,
no matter what He is there. 
He is our Father.

Prince of Peace.  
With all that has hit us this year, this month and even this week, the world is searching for peace. 
Yet, many are afraid to turn to the Prince of Peace,
the very one that is the giver of all peace.

And the Government will be on his shoulders. 
ALL authority is His.  No matter what we see in the natural, God still holds all authority.  We are his hands planting the seeds, but He is the one that brings the results for His purpose.
