Beloved Names of God.... Wonderful Counselor



Beloved Names of God

Wonderful Counselor

 "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."
Isaiah 9:6 NIV
 
  • Name of God the Son
  • Jesus is called "Wonderful Counselor" once in the NIV.
  • In some translations, a comma separates "Wonderful" and Counselor." It make no difference. Someone who is both wonderful and a counselor would surely be a wonderful counselor as well.
  • By using the name Wonderful Counselor, the prophet Isaiah was foretelling the birth of Christ, praising His attributes, and predicting His everlasting reign.

When noble leaders come to power, they usually surround themselves with wise counselors. Pharaoh took Joseph's advice and guided Egypt through years of drought. Daniel counseled Nebuchadnezzar on his relationship with God. Esther's cousin, Mordecai, saved Xerxes from an assassination plot. The success o such counselors depended largely on their ability to gain their kings ear.

Now imagine the perfect combination of leadership and wisdom: a leader with such great power that He doesn't need anyone's advice, because He knows all of creation and everyone in it. No one would have to petition to be heard by Him. He would want to speak with each of us every day. The advice HE gives would never be wrong, and the Kingdom He rules would never end.

Sound familiar? Thank the Lord today for being our Wonderful Counselor.
