Jesus Shoulders You at all Times

"6For 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, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." (Isaiah 9: 6)

"The government shall be on His shoulder."

Jesus carries the entire universe on His shoulder. Jesus is our Prince of  Peace (Ephesians 2: 14), the very image of God (Colossians 1: 15), and everything was made by Him and is built through Him (Colossians 1: 16-17)

Yet for you and me, he uses both shoulders:

"3And he spake this parable unto them, saying, 4What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? 5And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing." (Luke 15: 3-5)

Jesus is our Good Shepherd:

"11I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep." (John 10: 11)

This good shepherd puts us on both of His shoulders, and He celebrates us when we allow Him to carry us.

"And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you." (Isaiah 46: 4)

Jesus shoulders us all times, whether we are in trouble or in triumph:

"37Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us." (Romans 8: 37)


"Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:" (Philippians 1: 6)


"Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place." (2 Corinthians 2: 14)
