Wonderful Counselor. Another word for counselor is advocate, and that is just what Jesus is. He is for you. He will fight for you. He wants you to succeed and have a fulfilling life. And He is our intercessor. He 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)
Like Simon Peter, even when we fail, Jesus is ready to help us up. He is a wise and wonderful counselor. A true friend who never leaves us. He promises to be with us in this life and to guide us home. The prophet Isaiah wrote about 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 Counselor, Mighty God,
Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6)
