Wonderful Counselor!

We know from the Scriptures that Jesus–the Christ child–was the Son of God.

But who is He…in your life?

How has He shown Himself?

For many of us, He is our Savior–the One who took the penalty for our sins and gave Himself in our place, so that the debt is “Paid In Full”!

He is also our Lord–the One who guides and directs our steps, who inspires live for the Father’s Will, bringing our lives into conformity with His Word, the Bible.

Who is He to you?

Way back in history, hundreds of years before Christ, the Prophet Isaiah prophesied that “A child is born to us, a Son is given to us, and the government will be upon His shoulders, and He will be called…” (Isaiah 9:6a)


Jesus is the perfect counselor, guiding us to make decisions that are not simply practical and helpful, but eternally wise as well!

Jesus is the perfect ‘counselor’ partly because He can see into our hearts–even better than we can! Sometimes we get confused as to what’s really best for us, but He doesn’t!

If we live in a way which surrenders to His wisdom and leading (found in His Word and through the guidance of the Holy Spirit), He will never steer us wrong!

All of us get confused at times. All of us get our priorities mixed up…but Jesus, our Wonderful Counselor can be trusted to lead us with wisdom, love, and with our eternal good in mind.

Aren’t you glad that you don’t have to rely merely on your own wisdom, but that He is close by whenever we call?


Consider and Discuss: Has Jesus ever helped you be being your “Wonderful Counselor”? Has He ever given you wisdom from the Word of God to guide you through a tough situation? Can you share about it? Praise Him for it!


Listen to this beautiful song about Jesus as our Wonderful Counselor (it’s from the mid-80’s, so you may just want to close your eyes and listen!) 🙂
