Names of Jesus: Wonderful Counselor

Another word for counselor is advocate, and that is just what Jesus is. He will fight for you. He will fight your battles. He even prays on our behalf to our Heavenly Father.

Jesus said, “Simon, Simon, look out! Satan has asked to sift you like wheat. But I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail.”  Luke 22:31-32

Jesus is our wise and wonderful counselor. A true friend who never leaves us. He promises to protect us and guide us home. The prophet Isaiah recognized this 700 years before the birth of Jesus:

For a child will be born for us,
a son will be given to us,
and the government will be on His shoulders.
He will be named
Wonderful CounselorMighty God,
Eternal FatherPrince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6)
