On the go?  Press play!

 

For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father [of Eternity], Prince of Peace.  Isaiah 9:6 AMPC

Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign: Behold, the young woman who is unmarried and a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel [God with us].  Isaiah 7:14 AMPC

 

Father, thank You for who You are.  Thank You for being the unchanging God.  You are not limited to seasons.  We celebrate and proclaim certain aspects of Your character at Christmas.  But the truth is You are always the same.  Though I will never be able to fathom the magnitude of all Your facets, I thank You that Your Word tells me who You are and will continue to be to me.

 

You are Wonderful Counsellor

You Lord, are my guru and guide for life. The One I look to for direction.  You fill me with skillful and godly wisdom.  You sharpen my discernment so I know how to operate in every circumstance.  Your Word lights my pathway so I know where to place my feet.  Thank You for being my confidante – the One I can run to with all my concerns and the deep desires of my heart.

 

You are Mighty God

You, O Lord, are the Omnipotent God – the One whose arms span the Universe.  Your power is unfathomable.  Your strength is immeasurable.  You are my Great Big God!  Bigger and stronger than anything the enemy throws my way.  Bigger and stronger than any challenge I face.  I need not fear, because Your arms are strong enough to hold me, to protect and shield me…to love and comfort me.  You are God – Mighty God!  Extremely God!  Exceedingly God!  Immensely, All-By- Yourself,  Forever-And-Always-Will-Be God!

 

You are Everlasting Father

Thank You Lord for being the Father who never disappoints – the One I can count on.  The faithful, loving Father who always comes through.  The Father who rescues me, upholds me and sustains me.  When I come to You, You put me on Your shoulders high above my circumstances so I can see them clearly and know how to maneuver.  You fight my battles for me.  But most wonderful of all, is that You will always be my Father.  You never stop being my Father.  You are never too tired, never sick of listening to my concerns.  You take care of me in the way that most benefits me.  I know you don’t have favorites, but Your love makes me feel so precious and cherished.  You dance with me and rejoice over me with singing.  I lack no good thing in Your presence.

 

You are Prince of Peace

You Lord, give me the peace that goes beyond my understanding.  In Your presence I find the calm center of the storm.  You still my fearful, quaking heart and make me strong and sure.  Your peace rules over all my challenges and responsibilities.

 

You are Immanuel – God with us

Thank You Lord that I have access to every aspect of Your character because You are with me.  You will be with me no matter where I go.  You will never leave me nor forsake me Immanuel.

 

 

Love & Blessings,
