The Mighty God

El Gibhor

“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).

This Scripture, written more than 700 years before the birth of Christ, prophesies Messiah will be “El” (the one true God) and Gibhor (the Mighty God). As you pray, recognizing prophecy’s fulfillment in Jesus as El Gibhor, see His might in creation before His earthly life began; all things were created through Him and for Him (John 1:3, Colossians 1:16). See Him as the mighty God of ministry—commanding the weather as He calms the storm, dominating physical elements as He turns water into wine, overpowering diseases of the body and mind (and even the demons of Hell). Contemplate His might in rising from the grave. And thank Him for His power giving you strength for every challenge, and security for all eternity.
