Isaiah 9:6-7--a devotional by Sylvia Gunter

Process Spirituality

SylviaThe names of God in Isaiah 9:6 are familiar to most of us.


Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace.
But have you ever really unpacked it and felt the depth and passion
of the verse?

For to us a child is born, unto us a son is given, dedicated, granted, given in exchange for or to pay a wage
and the government dominion shall be up on His shoulder
and His name, reputation, fame and glory
shall be called, recited, cried out, and proclaimed to be

Wonderful, extraordinary, a hard to understand thing, a marvel of God Counselor, one who advises, consults, counsels, gives purpose, devises, plans

Mighty strong, chief, valiant God
Everlasting ancient of past time and forever of future time
Father, the head or founder of a family or clan, the first of all fathers

Prince, ruler, leader, chief of Peace, wholeness, completeness, soundness, welfare, quiet, tranquility, contentment, complete health.

That would be enough right there, but then it continues to in verse 7.

And of the increase abundance of his government dominion and peace wholeness, completeness, soundness, welfare, quiet, tranquility, contentment, complete health there shall be no end.

Through Jesus, God has offered us a great exchange through the only One with enough dominion, power, strength, and wisdom to pay our debt of sin in full so that we might know Him who is our Father, Ruler, Leader of wholeness, completeness, soundness, tranquility, contentment, and peace. And He is those things to us in abundance that never runs out.

That is worth proclaiming and crying out to the world!
