The government is on God’s shoulder

During times of uncertainty and political divisiveness, people want stability. They want to know that the institutions that undergird their lives, such as government, are resting on a more sure basis than the shoulders of well-meaning but imperfect men and women.

Centuries ago, the prophet Isaiah foresaw a government not of fallible people, but of an infallible, all-powerful, all-good God. He said that this divine government would be represented by the Son of God born into the world, and that “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).
