Read Isaiah 9:6-7
Think of a person who has never failed you.
Can you name even one?
There is no one on this earth who will not fail you. As sinful people, we will always let each other down.
Now, think about the glory of Jesus. Your Wonderful Counselor, your Mighty God, your Eternal Father, the Prince of Peace. He will never let you down. He will never leave you.
He is there for every single one of His children. He is your Wonderful Counselor. As such, He wants you to come to Him with all of the hardships that you’re battling (Matthew 11:28-29). He wants you to let Him in your life.
He wants you to worship Him with all that you have, for He is mighty to save (Zephaniah 3:17).
I love this combination of Jesus’ names. It is the perfect mixture of the way our Savior comforts us while simultaneously being the most powerful being in the Universe.
I’m going to ask you to do something a little out of the ordinary…I want you to close your eyes and simply sit in the greatness of Jesus. I want the power of Jesus to captivate your heart and mind in this moment and throughout the rest of the day.
As you go through the rest of your day, meditate on at least one of the names of Jesus that we’ve talked about. Let His glory fill you up today and rest in the comfort of His presence.
Questions to consider:
- What does this name of Jesus mean to you?
- Which one of these names resonates the most to you?
- In what way are you going to use this name to rest in the comfort of His presence today?
