One of the names of the child that was given to us according to Isaiah 9:6 was Wonderful. It was the first name in this book of Isaiah. The dictionary meaning of Wonderful are listed as: inspiring, delight, pleasure, extremely good, admiration, and marvelous. What our Lord Jesus Christ did in the lives of people generally during his 31/2 years of ministry were beyond people’s imagination. He started from Cana of Galilee where he turned water to wine when he was invited to the wedding ceremony and they ran out of wine in the middle of their festivities. People witnessed the blind receiving their sight, the man with withered hand being restored, a woman bent over for 18 years was healed, leprosy diseases were cured, the woman with issue of blood for 12 years received healing, man with palsy received healing, dead girl was raised to live, and Lazarus who was already dead for 4 days was restored back to life. The Scriptures says if they were to document all the miracles that Jesus performed, the books of the world would not be enough to contain them. He did all these miracles as an evidence of His extremely good nature, very compassionate, and very loving and have pleasure in bringing solution to all the problems brought before him. Do you know that He is still the same God today as He was thousands of years ago when he physically walked on the planet earth?
Today I am asking you to come to Him and dedicate your life to Him so that he can perform His wonders in your life. Whatever long standing challenges that you have, you can call upon Him today as the blind man called upon Him and his life turned around for good. He knows what you are going through, but he wants you to come to Him and ask for yourself. Matthew 11:28-30 says, “Come unto Me all ye that labor and heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of Me. For I am meek and lowly in heart, and you shall find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” He is a good God, and His yoke and His burden are for the purpose of making everyone of us to enjoy all that He has for us here and also enjoy with Him in heaven. To confirm to you His wonderful work in the life of humankind, when Jabez recognized the wonderful work of God in the life of everyone that called upon Him, he also decided to end his impoverished life that he was living by calling upon the God of Israel. 1 Chronicles 4:9-10 has this to say concerning Jabez “And Jabez was more honorable than his brethren and his mother called his name Jabez saying “Because I bare him with sorrow”. And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying , “Oh that you would bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that your hand might be with me, and that you will keep me from evil that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.
Our Lord Jesus Christ is waiting for you to make your life wonderful. All He needs is your commitment to Him and He will glorify Himself in your life. Will you do this come 2019 by the grace of God? Make 2019 a year of your personal testimony of setting aside yourself for Him to perform Great Wonders in your Life, your family, your business, and your ministry in Jesus Name, Amen. So shall it be in Jesus Name, Amen. God bless you. Have a glorious new year!!!
