Isaiah 9:6 – and His name shall be called…

Isaiah 9:6
6
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

-The Lord has many names found throughout scripture; all of them well-deserved and exemplifying His Divine character.  We could spend all day going through some of those names (and I encourage you to do that), but I wanted to look at a few names that you won’t find ascribed to the Lord.  1) Betrayer– Has someone you counted on ever turned their back on you?  The Lord never has, He promised to never leave or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5).  He marched through death and Hell just so He could be there for us.  2) Foe– We all have more enemies than we need, but the Lord is not one of them. He loved us and sent His Son to die for us (John 3:16).  You will not find a better example of love and friendship than that.  3) Unfaithful2 Samuel 22:31As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.”  Consider, no one who has trusted in the Lord has ever come away disappointed.  He can be trusted with your family; He can be trusted with your money; He can even be trusted with your eternal soul.  God is good!
