Day 11

Day 11

Isaiah 9: 6-7 

For a child has been born for us, a son given to us; authority rests upon his shoulders; and he is named Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 

 

All My Days

There are so many names by which we refer to the Holy Trinity. Whenever I read this verse in Isaiah, it reminds me of the Stuart Townend song ‘All My Days (Beautiful Saviour)’. The chorus, that will be familiar to many of us, reads: 

“Beautiful Saviour, Wonderful Counsellor, 

Clothed in majesty, Lord of history, 

You’re the Way, the Truth, the Life. 

Star of the Morning, glorious in holiness, 

You’re the Risen One, heaven’s Champion 

And You reign, You reign over all.” 

We can rest assured in the hope that the child born for us, given to us, is our Saviour, Counsellor, Way and Champion. I pray that, this Advent, the Prince of Peace will bring us comfort.
