The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him, the Spirit of wisdom and

      understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of

                          the fear of the Lord. His delight is in the fear of the Lord.

    (Isaiah 11:2)


Isaiah prophesies that the Spirit would rest upon the King to rule with wisdom and understanding. The word “wisdom” means the ability to interpret reality, and “understanding” refers to the knowledge of what must be done with that wisdom. The King would also have the Spirit of counsel and might. Counsel is given to make the right decisions, and might is the power to execute them. He would also have the knowledge of the fear of the Lord and delight in that fear, celebrating God the Father by honoring and obeying Him.
