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.
In the Old Testament, the name “Mighty God” literally means “Hero God.” In a world where heroes are in such short supply, it’s great to have a God who is truly a hero!
It’s important to remember that our God mightily conquered sin, death, and hell. He overcame every obstacle in life and death so that you and I can have just that—life. And eternal life at that!
Don’t be fooled by the many opinions that exist today about who Jesus is. If you were to ask people on the street who they think Jesus is, you’d get a variety of incorrect answers.
But the Bible says “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He is the Mighty God… with all power… and He is available to you right now!
Through Him you can overcome anything in life. Whatever pain, crisis or challenge comes along, know that your Mighty God—your hero—will enable you to overcome it.
JESUS CHRIST IS THE MIGHTY GOD… THE “HERO GOD”
AND HE HAS DONE, AND WILL DO, GREAT THINGS FOR YOU!
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
