A Child Is Born
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. (Isaiah 9:6)
The word for today is calling.
Lord, thank you that we have a calling. As we partner with the Son of God, Jesus, this child that was born in a body, the Son of Man, Lord, thank you that the responsibility of complete dominion rests on your shoulders.
Your name is the Wonderful One. The Extraordinary Strategist. The Mighty God. The Father of All Eternity. The Prince of Peace.
We proclaim our trust in you, that you will rule and reign the world.
For your name is the Amazing Counselor.
You are strong and mighty, caring and kind. You are the Eternal Papa. You are the Prince of Wholeness.
You love to rule and reign with authority, and yet with love. There are no limits to the wholeness you bring in our lives.
Father, thank you for the power of leadership in your life and in our lives.
Thank you for the weight of authority that you carry. Thank you that the authority rests on your shoulders, Jesus. Thank you that you invite us to partner with you, and you give us your authority.
Lord, your name is known in so many ways.
You are our Wonderful Counselor. You are our Mighty God.
You are everlasting, caring, daring. The Everlasting Father, who is always present with us.
You are the Master of Goodness. You are the Master of Healing. You are the Master of Wholeness.
No wonder we call you the Prince of Peace.
You are ours.
And we are yours.
