Who Jesus Is

A couple nights ago I was lying awake feeling stressed out about various things - how was I going to handle a situation that had happened that day, and various other things I was worried about.

Jesus brought to my mind these words:  Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Prince of Peace.

These words are from God's Word, Isaiah 9:6, and are foretelling the birth of Jesus:

"For unto 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."

The words that Jesus brought to my mind comforted me because, as I thought upon them, I realized that...
  1. ...a counselor listens and advises.  Jesus listens to my concerns and gives me advice on what to do.
  2. ...Jesus, being God, is in control of absolutely everything, so He allows things in my life to happen in ways I don't always like for reasons that only He knows; yet, being mighty, He is also 100% able to change things if He so feels it is best!
  3. ...He calms me.  And it is true!  Especially after realizing Point #2, I felt a lot more at peace.
Thank You, Jesus, for who You are!
