For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of his government and of peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to establish it, and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from henceforth even for ever.
Dear Heavenly Father-
Today we acknowledge that You are Greater. You are Greater than any and all. You are Greater than sin and death.
You are so ever present in our midst. You arrive on time and You never ever fail. You are constant. You are our supply. You are our hope and our future.
As we read in scripture about the Christmas story, we learn more about Your heart.
Even as a baby brought into this world You were heralded as Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
You are our Wonderful Counselor who draws near unto us. You find us and you chase us down and You bring us back into a right relationship with You.
You are our Mighty God who goes before us and protects us and covers us with Your grace. You never walk away from us. And You never stop loving us.
You are our Everlasting Father who has prepared a place and a table for us to dine with You and to commune with You. You never grow tired of us, and You have stood the test of time.
You are our Prince of Peace. You calm the storms, You calm the waves, You squelch our fears and insecurities. You remain the one True God who speaks peace to our situations on this earth.
This Christmas, we know that You are not Invisible. You are here with us, and Our soul Magnifies Your Name.
My Soul, My Soul Magnifies You Lord-
