Seven hundred years before he was born, God gave Isaiah this beautiful prophecy about Jesus Christ. (9:6)
It all came true –
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given.”
Thank you, God, for giving us your son. Thank you for sending Jesus who has opened his arms wide to the entire world, offering salvation and love.
“and the government will be on his shoulders.”
We know Jesus rules the world, Father, with truth and grace. He is in control. Everything that happens comes through his hands. In both the good and the bad times, we say ‘thy will be done’.
“and he will be called Wonderful Counselor,”
Thank you for being my Wonderful Counselor, Jesus. You have always been there for me, especially these last 6 1/2 years since my son was killed in the line of duty. You have comforted me and guided me on this very dark path of grieving the death of child.
Thank you for always being my Mighty God. I have watched you do the impossible this last 6 1/2 years as you have started putting the broken pieces of my life back together. My world looks very different and I’m claiming your promise that you are working all things out for my good.
Thank you for being my everlasting Father. You have been my rock during the most horrific storm of my life. I was shaken, I was lost. You never shook. You always knew the way.
“Prince of Peace”
Thank you for bringing peace back into my life. I trust you with whatever happens to me, now and in the future. I rest in your love and grace.
Thank you for the gift of your son, Abba Father.
