Word Filled Wednesday–His Name…


For unto us a Child is born,
      Unto us a Son is given;
      And the government will be upon His shoulder.
      And His name will be called
      Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
      Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 
Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,  Isaiah 9:6,7


This week will probably find us thinking a lot about gifts.  Hopefully, most of our gifts have been purchased and are waiting to be opened.  We are probably hoping that the recipient will enjoy their gift and think fondly of our care in choosing it. 

This verse is my favorite Christmas verse.  It reminds us of God’s Gift to us and gives us the name of not only who He is, but what He is…our Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.  This gifts continue on through the ages and will abide forever.  That is a gift that keeps on giving!  May we take some time this week to meditate on our wonderful Savior and the power of His name.


  1. That is a favorite verse of mine, too. I absolutely love "The Hallelujah Chorus" - of which these names of the Lord are part. It gives me goosebumps and tears at the same time. Did you happen to see the YouTube video of people singing it in a food court? It was a total surprise - and it was very special. To sing out, in a public place, adoration to our Savior - oh, thrilling!

    Wishing you and yours a WONDER-full Christmas!


  2. The NAME above all names! Thanks for the reminder!

  3. I love HIS NAME! Thanks for the reminder; I hope you and yours celebrate a blessed Christmas together :)

  4. I love the names! I always am mezmerized by all the names and things he is! Amen!

    Happy WFW and Merry Christmas!

  5. Beautiful verse, and lovely post. Happy Word-filled Wednesday.

  6. Beautiful photos! You are right he is our "Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace!" I pray we not only unwrap the gifts around our tree but the gift found lying in a manger long ago!;)

  7. He truly is the gift that keeps on giving day after day. There is always more of Him to unwrap. Merry Christmas.

  8. Thank you, this is a beautiful verse and reminder. Have a wonderful Christmas. Kathi
