Isaiah 9:6 (KJV)
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
I visited an orphanage and realized for the first time that I had not been thankful enough for the gift of a good [earthly] father. In the orphanage, I met a four-year-old orphaned girl with a terminal heart disease. But despite her condition, she exuded the grace and confidence of one who had a good father, mother, or both. It was an orphanage but it felt as though I was in the presence of one from an aristocratic or royal family. I felt like adopting her.
Many have been hurt and are in need of healing because of experiences they’ve had with bad fathers, or because they cannot even relate with the concept of proper fatherhood. You may not have had a father at all, you may be one, you may have had a bad one or the one you have never planned to have you. Regardless of all these scenarios, if you believe in the Lord Jesus(accept His Lordship over your life), you will be adopted into the family of the everlasting Father (John 1:12-13, Rom 8:15).
Having the last name of the world’s most powerful president or billionaire pales deeply in comparison to The everlasting Father’s name you’ll inherit (Eph 3:15). You will be called God’s righteous one, light, God’s temple, etc. and as you live your life as a reflection of these names, doors will unlock and things will align in your favor (2 Corinthians 6:14-16, Heb 10:38, Ps 16:6).
Prayer: Lord, help me live under the Lordship of Christ and walk in Your plan for me to be your child indeed. Amen.
