(Isaiah 9.6 NJKV) 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.
JESUS IS WONDERFUL
Exceeds all expectations
Beyond anything we have ever seen
JESUS IS THE COUNSELOR
The word “counselor” means “One who has plans.”
A counselor was a valuable ally.
He doesn’t have an opinion, He has the answer.
(Psalm 139.13-18) For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with you.
TAP INTO WONDER AND COUNSEL
Start with His written plan, the Bible.
Be close to his people.
(Proverbs 13:20) Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm.
(1 Corinthians 12:27) Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.
