The Wholeness

 I have been led to read in Isaiah a lot lately, God has had some powerful verses for me there. This morning He took me to Isaiah 9 and I love versus 6 and 7 in the Message:

"For a child has been born--for us! the gift of a son--for us
He'll take over the running of the world
His name will be Amazing Counselor,
Strong God, Eternal Father, Prince of Wholeness
His ruling authority will grow and there'll be no limits to the wholeness he brings."

NO LIMITS, to me that means through the Son of God He can and will counsel anything for me, He can and will be strong at all times, He is always eternal, He is whole and He makes me whole IN Him! Because of who He is, and who I am IN Him, there are no limits, because HE RULES!!  
There is the issue of living here on a sin-infested earth, and I get to deal with all kinds of issues that sometimes feels like such a brokenness that I wonder if it will ever get better. Thrones in the flesh, like Paul talked about, and I continue to cry out to God to remove them and bring wholeness. I know He can, yet still there are so many challenges. The enemy roars, and though victory is mine, my day is rough!
I have come to see that with those rough days I continue to run back to my Amazing Counselor, my Strong God, and Eternal Father. He continues on a daily basis to give me the wholeness I need for the moment. Step by step, day by day, He is guiding me through the maze of my life. He has the map of my life, He is my wholeness, the victor in all things. He is not only running the world, but He gets to run my life, one day at a time! This is wholeness.
Jesus, Thank you for being such an amazing gift and an Amazing Counselor.  Thank you for running the world, and my life. Thank you for being a Strong God, Eternal Father, and Prince of Wholeness. Please Say That Again to me, I need to hear it everyday!
