Wonderful Mighty Everlasting Peace

His name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, the Mighty God,
the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:6

We are known by a few descriptive names ourselves.  Husband, wife, brother. sister, farmer, gardener, carpenter, nurse, banker, teacher, musician, pastor,–none come close to what is described in Isaiah 9.   We’re rarely mighty, barely everlasting, have to work very hard on being wonderful and how often is peace attributed to us?

How do we find the combination of all these attributes in one person?

It’s God.  That is no surprise.  He’s God and we’re most definitely not.

And there is wonderful mighty everlasting peace because He is.
