Meaning of Wonderful:
“Marvelous Thing”, Object of Astonishment.
There is no way for me to talk about the Father seeing us as wonderful without talking about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He is the epitome of Wonderful. The Bible describes Him as a Wonderful Counselor.
For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father [of Eternity], Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
Jesus, lowly Jesus, born in a manger that rose to be the most politically, spiritually and governmentally impactful person the world has or will ever know. That’s his story. It’s the truth, and it’s his-story. What is yours? Jesus said that because He was going to go to the Father we would do greater works than he did. That would be wonderful and astonishing.
God has put a story in you. There is a scroll in heaven, a wonderful story of your life as God planned for it to be. We can embrace God’s plan for our lives, walk humbly before Him and watch Him make something totally wonderful and unexpected just as He did with Jesus. As with Jesus, your beginnings have absolutely nothing to do the ending, or how God will conclude your story. Will you release God to work His wonders out through you and your life? Are you on board with God’s agenda for your life. Can you see how the hand of God moved in the lives of so many biblical characters like, Abraham, Esther, Ruth. Look at Paul who started off imprisoning Christians. God indeed can make you and your life wonderful.
Father, I thank you and I praise you for weaving your amazement in the fibers of my life. I invite you Lord to so demonstrate your kindness, goodness and power in my life to take me from where I am to where you want me to be and where I should be at this point in my life. My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus love and righteousness. I dear not trust the sweetest frame but wholly lean on Jesus’ name. On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand. All other ground is sinking sand. My expectation is in you and I know that you are bringing me to a wide open space where I can lengthen my cords and strengthen my stakes. I am enlarged because of your goodness. Let the Holy Spirit, rest rule and abide in my life. May the Holy Spirit incubate my life and bring out al of the wonder you destined for me to live in. May the Holy Spirit cause the new creation of my life to be full of light, to produce and to rule, reign and take dominion wherever my feet shall tread. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
