Great devo that I read today!

The Mighty God
Today's Scripture

“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 AMP).

Today's Word from Joel and Victoria

We don’t just serve a mighty God, we serve The Mighty God! People have served many types of gods throughout history, but none of them could be called mighty. One of the definitions of the word mighty in the original Hebrew is a champion or hero. From before Jesus’ birth, His name was Champion. He was marked to be your Hero. And not only did He come to save you from the eternal punishment of sin, He came to save you from sickness, shame, fear, poverty, and anything that would hold you back in this life. The Bible says that He came so that you could have life and have it more abundantly! Is there anything that is holding you back right now? Anything that you need to be “rescued” from? Call on your Hero—The Mighty God. Let Him show Himself strong on your behalf. Open your heart and trust that He is working behind the scenes in your favor. He loves to be your Hero. As you praise and thank Him for all He’s doing in your life, you’ll feel His peace and rest, and you’ll be ready to live the abundant life He has in store for you!

A Prayer for Today

Father in heaven, thank You for sending Your son, Jesus, so that I could be free. Thank You for being my Champion and Hero and for giving me abundant life on this earth. I choose to trust You today and always. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
