For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be on His shoulder.
And his name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
Isaiah lists four titles for
Jesus. Tonight, I will reflect on the title Mighty God. He is the strongest person I
know; He bears all our burdens, all of our sorrows, all our grief. Psalm 55:22
tells us He will sustain us. He will never let the righteous fall.
Tonight, my husband had to hear something about a man in our church; he heard this story from some former members. I had my reasons for not sharing this story with
1.) At some point fact becomes gossip or at least hearsay.
2.) I was concerned about the gentleman and the turn of events. I didn’t want to communicate anger or apprehension to my husband.
3.) I don’t always understand my husband’s reaction to what I tell him.
4.) I try not to spread rumors or pass on tales or bad stories on people.
5.) I want God’s approval on my life; so I try to abide by His rules and teachings.
I have to trust God with my feelings for these people. I need to know that my feelings for these people are true and in line with what God wants.
I believe God can be trusted for everything and, because of His great might that my trust is as it should be. I want to examine my heart to see if I am correct in my thoughts.
Lord, search me, look into my heart and see if I am attaining the qualities that You desire me to have. Please forgive me for my bad behavior that I displayed today.
