Week 1 – Wednesday
Isaiah 9:6 ESV “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.”
Here we see in the prediction by the prophet Isaiah that the baby born in the manger whom we celebrate at Christmas time would be coming to be our Everything. He was coming to be our “everlasting FATHER.” He has fulfilled that prophesy, and has adopted those who are His. How do feel about these strong descriptive words of our Father? Do you see Him this way? Why or why not?
We invite you to share your insights and thoughts by leaving a comment below or by replying to another comment.
If you would like, you can unpack the verse S.O.A.P style:
S = Scripture; what is it that I’m reflecting upon.
O = Observation; what does this mean to me, what do I notice? What got my attention? Can I rephrase this in my own words?
A = Application; how can I apply this into my life? What action can I take as a result of what I just learned
P = Prayer; based on what I’ve learned and my application/action, pray – talk to God about your insight, ask for help, offer thanksgiving.
