Dullness, Decisions, Demands, Dimensions & Disturbances

posted by Ruth Graham

A dear friend from Houston wrote to me recently and she included a quote form Warren Wiersbe that is too good to not pass along to you all! It is from his book, His Name is Wonderful. I thought it was profound.

Isaiah the prophet is making a prophecy about the coming Messiah. He says, “For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; and the government will rest on His shoulders; and His name will be called Wonderful Counsellor. Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6 NAS)

His name shall be called…

Wonderful – that takes care of the Dullness of life.

Counsellor – that takes care of the Decisions of life.

The Mighty God – that takes care of the Demands of life.

The Everlasting Father…that takes care of the Dimensions of life.

The Prince of Peace…that takes care of the Disturbances of life.

 

Are you feeling dull? Do you have big (or little) decisions facing you? Is your life seemingly a series of demands – urgent ones? Do you feel as if there is no purpose to life? Do you feel as if chaos is taking over?

Read the ancient prophet again. Trust his words. Know the truth of them.

This same prophet said, “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Thee.” (KJV) Keep focused!

Rest, Elijah!
Many of us are familiar with the story of the great Old Testament prophet, Elijah. Quite a man. He confronted the wicked Queen Jezebel many times - stood for God's truth and authority at his own risk. Jezebel, with her husband, Ahab, were formidable, powerful, calculating adversaries. They struck t

Hope vs. Despair
Have you ever been depressed? Low? Lower than a "lizard's belt buckle", as my mother used to say. "Cast down", as King David said in Psalm 42. David wrote he cried day and night while men taunted him. He thought back to the good times which made him feel worse. He uses the word,  "disturbed" -

The Iron Dome
Last Saturday night, my little town did its fireworks - we do them the week after the 4th. As I crawled into bed, I could hear all the booms and see the glow from the explosions in the distance. Of course, I couldn't help but think of those in war-torn areas of he world. I remember being in Sar

A Pedophile's Dream...Sex Traffickers Welcome!
There is a lot of talk about the immigration issue and the situation on our Southern border. But I have not heard anyone mention that having all these unaccompanied children in our border states and beyond is a real dream come true for pedophiles and sex-traffickers. Strangers are allowed to step fo

What Cancer Cannot Do
It seems as if cancer is an epidemic! Sometimes I wonder if it is the stress-filled and face -paced lives we all live that create the environment for cancers. Everyone knows someone suffering from it - it robs so much from  the person and family. Someone passed this on to me. It is so well don
