Christmas thoughts- He will be called “Wonderful counselor”

In the prophecy written by Isaiah over 700 years before Jesus came there were some titles Isaiah gave to the son who would be born of a virgin. One of those titles is Wonderful Counselor. Jesus has many titles since He is the eternal Son of God who has all power. Wonderful Counselor is one that I think gets overlooked sometimes, but is so needed today.

There is so much confusion in the world today due to economic crisis, conflicts between countries, uncertainty about the future, famine, sickness, and a vast array of religious/philosophical teachings. Sometimes we can wonder where is it all going. We can also wonder what to do or what direction we should take in our personal lives.

Jesus is the Wonderful Counselor. He wants to share His wisdom with us. He already knows the future because He is eternal and is already there. He has already given the invitation. He said- “come to me all who are weary and carrying heavy loads and I will give you rest”. That is an open invitation for ALL. The invitation is not for an exclusive club or special group of people. It is for ALL. Jesus is the Wonderful Counselor who will guide ALL who seek Him. The question is will we ask Him to guide us.
