Wonderful! Although it is probably seldom used today, this word has tremendous meaning and is therefore relevant to us. From the Hebrew word we find meanings such as, miracle or a marvelous thing. The base word is even more descriptive, using descriptions such as great and things too high (for our understanding). Just the thought of it makes me want to shout, “Where can I find something this grand?” Is it in money, fame, popularity or material possessions? Can I find this in a super relationship of some sort?
There are places where wonderful applies in this life but one place stands out from them all. Isaiah, the Old Testament prophet spoke of someone who would come to set us free from the bondage of sin and give us a wonderful life here and now and for eternity. This man he wrote of is none other than the Lord Jesus Christ!
“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, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6 (KJV)
When we look at the name of Jesus Christ we see something so high that it is too high for us to understand completely. Just the parts we see make us gaze with wonder and say in our hearts, “WONDERFULL!” The Word of God has much to say about the name of the Lord Jesus. AI have listed just a few of them here.
Safety from the storm: “The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.” Proverbs 18:10 (KJV)
Salvation: “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name *(Jesus) under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Acts 4:12 (KJV) * my emphasis
Healing: “Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.” Acts 3:6 (KJV)
Salvation: “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.” Acts 2:38 (KJV)
I could go on and on, but suffice it to say, there is one word that sums up this great name, wonderful. Do you need something wonderful in your life? The answer is wrapped up in a name, Jesus Christ. You may want to look at the study entitled, “Who Is Jesus Christ?” . After looking at him and who he is you will say “wonderful” too!
Here’s the daily inspirational scripture!
“Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:  That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:  Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:  Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.” 1 Peter 1:6-9 (KJV)
