The whisper of God

We started our new teaching series at MKCC on Sunday. Called "He will be called" it is based on Isaiah 9 v 6:

"For to us a child is born, to 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."

I kicked it off with "Wonderful Counsellor".

Studying the word Counsellor throughout the Bible helped me understand a little more the Biblical view of God counsels us.

The meaning is one who brings someone close to their side and speaks quietly too them.

I think this is a beautiful picture of what God does for us. He puts his arm round our shoulder and whispers a word just for us, not for anyone else, just between you and God.

An amazing God!
