A child will be born for us.
A son will be given to us.
The government will rest on his shoulders.
He will be named:
Prince of Peace.
The birth of our Savior provided for the rebirth of the human spirit, and in doing so made the way for man to be reunited with God. In providing a way for us to come back into relationship with God, He has also reunited us with the very nature of our God. Isaiah describes this in the above verse, for who He is, we now have access to. Once we have been born again that door is open, we can now step into relationship with God and through our relationship with Him, receive all He has to offer us.
He is the Wonderful Counselor. One translation says He is an Extraordinary Strategist. There is nothing you will face in this life that God cannot give you the answer to. James tells us if you lack true understanding of anything, ask of God in faith and you will receive. He is also the Mighty God. The word refers to a warrior, a champion. God has never been defeated. When you walk by faith with your God neither will you.
He is the Everlasting Father. God said He will never leave you nor forsake you, you can always count on Him. If you draw near to Him, He will always draw near to you. He is also the Prince of Peace. The word for peace means to be complete. It includes health, prosperity, safety, and harmony with God. He is the One who completes us. So receive all He is through relationship with Him, for our King has come!
