BIBLE IN ONE YEAR : 1 CHRONICLES 9 : 35 – 11 : 47 AND LUKE 15 : 25 – 16 : 13.
One of the names or titles of our Lord Jesus Christ is wonderful (Isaiah 9:6).
The word ‘wonderful’ is a combination of these two words: ‘wonder’ and
‘fully’, which jointly mean full of wonders. Acts 2 : 22 says,
“Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God
among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst
of you, as ye yourselves also know:”
The terms miracles, wonders and signs in this scripture are placed according to
their order of awesomeness. It means that wonders are superior to miracles in
awesomeness and of a higher grade. When you look at Jesus, you will discover
that everything about Him is full to wonders. His Name is Wonderful because it
is far highly exalted above every other Name ( Philippians 2 : 9 – 11 ). His Name
commands the compulsory obedience of every force or power that exists.
Not only is His Name full of wonders, but His love is also wonderful. No one else
can love you like Jesus does. He loves you even much more than you love
yourself. What about His peace? It is very unique; it is unlike anything the
world can offer you ( John 14 : 27 ). No wonder Philippians 4 : 7 says His peace
passes all human understanding. If God gives you peace? Who or what can
trouble you? It is equally wonderful. Matthew 28 : 18 says :
“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in
heaven and in earth.”
All authority comes under His divine majesty, what about His grace? It is also
full of wonders. The richeness of His grace goes beyond what we are currently
enjoying in this world ( Ephesians 2 : 7 ). His grace is inexhaustible to the
fellow who knows how to relate with Him, which is why He has a throne of
grace that we can boldly approach to receive mercy ( Hebrews 4 : 16 ). Grace
made God’s provision available to us at the expense of Christ sacrificing His life
on the cross of Cavalry. In addition, His joy is wonderful, and so is His
strength. If you have Jesus Christ in you and you give Him the freedom to do
whatever He likes in your life (i.e. you regard Him as Lord and not as a guest),
His wonders will be replete in every area of your life. Do you allow Him to do His
wonderful works in your life?
PRAYER POINT :
Father, come and perform Your wonders in every area of my life
