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, Prince of Peace.
One of the names given to Jesus is “Wonderful Counselor”… and it reveals His desire to counsel and comfort you in your time of need.
Maybe today, your life is a mess and you feel like you’re hanging by a thread. Or maybe you are facing big decisions or changes that you need wisdom to handle.
Don’t fall into the trap of trying to alleviate the pressure you are feeling by turning to things like drugs, false religions, or even to other people in the hope that they can fix your problem. Ultimately, none of these things will meet your deepest needs.
Jesus, the Wonderful Counselor, can give you the clarity, comfort, and direction you need right now. He can restore your peace in the midst of brokenness and confusion.
Jesus said, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).
The secret is simply to come to Him… and then you will discover the peace, wisdom, direction, and love that you need. He is the Wonderful Counselor!
TURN TO THE WONDERFUL COUNSELOR FIRST
AND YOU WILL FIND THE COMFORT AND DIRECTION YOU NEED.
