Manna For Today: Sunday, January 7, 2018
Isaiah 9:6-7 – 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, and Prince of Peace. 7Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
We have often stated that Christ is the reason for season, our reference is to that time of the year we call the Christmas season. It is true that Christ is the reason for the season but not just the one. He is the reason for all seasons. The text above, when embraced in light of God’s purpose and plan for the pronouncement, reminds us of the enduring gift that is Christ, our Lord and Savior.
Thank God, He is not seasonal but is available daily to all who open themselves to His divinely generated gifts. Don’t think in terms of what He has to give but in terms of what you need because He has exactly what you need right now. It’s yours for the asking so ask and receive and encourage someone to do the same.
He is truly Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace. Share this thought with someone who may benefit from it today!
Remember, you are loved!
Peace and blessings!
