Today I am continuing my study in one of my favorite verses for Christmas time, which is Isaiah 9:6 which says “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
This is a verse that clearly points to the trinity – Jesus is the Everlasting Father! They are one! And then I think about the word “Everlasting” and how God never changes. We can experience his love for all time. Let that soak in. It’s hard for us to imagine because we live in a finite world. God the Son is not bound by time or space. In an ever changing world we can be totally secure in Christ – he is from everlasting and will continue on with us into eternity for forever!
My friend Aimee sent me an email yesterday morning. In it she was writing about how God is like our earthly father and it seemed appropriate to share as I am looking at Jesus being the “Everlasting Father.” Here is what she wrote:
Have you crawled up into the arms of your Everlasting Father yet today? He loves you – He desires to be close to you. Won’t you take the time today and allow him to talk to you through His word, listen – allow him to speak to your soul. He is always watching, He is always listening and He cares for you!
Walk with the King!
