Topic: Expect Wonderful Things In Christ [Friday October 20, 2017]
“…and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6 KJV)
If you have had an encounter with Jesus, you are not ordinary. Therefore, don’t expect things to happen to you as they happen to others. What you expect is what you get. The bible says his name shall be called wonderful, meaning you will be a wonder to behold. If you go for an interview you will be successful. If they put you behind the line, God will bypass the line and place you ahead of them.
The enemy wants you dead, but God will disappoint their devices. People are watching around you, but the more they look at you the more beautiful you are. His name shall be called wonderful. This means you should expect wonders! It is your birthright because Christ in you is the hope of glory. Expect glory and not shame. I proclaim boldly, that the shame is over. You cannot see shame. You are called for glory.
Beloved, the names of Christ are his attributes. They point you to what you should expect. His name shall be called Counselor! In other words God intends to let you know what will happen at all times, how and where, what to do, where to go, what to sell and what to invest in. When Christ was to feed five thousand people, He knew what to do. Jesus does not want us to beat about the bush. From this moment forward you won’t beat about the bush. You will be on target. His name shall be called Counselor. That means he will counsel you. He will tell you about your husband, about your wife, how to live with them, about your academics and about every area of your life. He will let you know all you need to know. Expect these for they are yours in Christ.
