Wonderful Counselor

Bible says in Isaiah 9:6 “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.”

This prophesy was fulfilled when Jesus came into this world. He was born as a child and was given to us as a son of most high God. Please note that the prophet did not use “the” before son but “a” to emphasize the fact that God was and is willing to adopt everyone whoever  believes on Jesus, as his own sons and daughters. God had planned to bring his own sons and daughters to glory with Jesus being their elder brother. As Jesus says in Hebrews 2:13 “Here am I, and the children God has given me”.

When we trust Jesus as our elder brother, we enter into a new family and receive the inheritance that God has in store for his children. We not only receive our inheritance but a counselor, who is unique and different from others. HE IS THE WONDERFUL COUNSELOR. Jesus is fully equipped to counsel us according to our needs. He has lived a human life on this earth and has gone through every possible trials and tribulations that might tempt us today. A counselor becomes trustworthy when we could relate our situations and circumstances with his experience. Jesus not only counsels us during our tough times but also lead us to a path where we find complete freedom from the negative effects of adverse circumstances and situations.

Have you tried Jesus as a counselor today? He is just a prayer away.
