Who My God Is To Me

Isaiah 9:6
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 Counselor
Mighty God
Everlasting Father
Prince of Peace

My God is a wonderful counselor. I so thankful that I have Someone to talk to who knows every little detail and concern of my life and who is willing to give me counsel. How I need it! I feel so inadequate sometimes to the challenges that I face in life and God is there for me. I just need to slow down enough to listen. Rest and quiet myself before Him. He has so much He wants to share with me, so much wisdom to impart. Apart from Him I can do nothing of lasting value but in Him, all things are possible and He gives me the wisdom to do and say things that really matter and have value.
My God is a mighty God! We have a saying in our church: God is Mighty to Save, willing to heal and ready to revive! So true and I have to remember this when people seem to be faltering in their walks with God, when struggles against sin seem to be overwhelming, when nothing seems to be going as it should, when circumstances seem in opposition to God’s Word, --- My God is mighty! He is bigger than these things! He holds the world in His hands. Nothing is impossible for Him. He is real and He really is active in our world, bringing salvation, healing, deliverance and revival!
My God is an everlasting Father! How I love my Father God!! He is the most perfect Daddy and He loves each one of us sooo very very much! Just thinking about God becoming man, clothing Himself in humility and coming as a baby - Wow - what amazing love! He cares so deeply for me and wants the best for me, for you. He treasures me, values me, calls me His masterpiece, loves to dance and sing with me, rejoices with me, cries with me, hugs me, knows me - inside and out - and He loves me for me. I really love Him for Him. Everlasting love. It knows no end, knows no bounds, no limitations.
My God is the Prince of Peace! He speaks to the raging storms - be calm. He brings peace to my chaos. In the midst of chaos, His presence is there and He calms me and He calls me to rest in Him. To be peaceful in process. To trust that He is in control so I don’t have to be in control - I can just have peace in Him. I am not responsible to make something happen - He is. He is in control. I am simply along for the ride, trusting Him to guide my every step. Walking In His ways, as He shows me the way.
