“The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”).  – Matthew 1:23

If God is with us, who could stand against us???  Indeed!!!

That truth alone should be enough – ENOUGH.  I could stop writing for today and that would be – enough.  It would be the shortest blog post ever…  but seriously, isn’t that all we need to know as we travel this journey called life?  from-christmas-to-forever-immanuel  I love how Lucinda made it personal at the end…  Me.  HE IS WITH ME.  There are most assuredly times when God seems distant and quiet.  But the teacher is always quiet during the test, right?  One day we look back on those times with a better understanding of things – not always, but usually.  We just keep trusting in faith that God knows best.  He is with us and He is taking care of us.

Let’s continue to praise IMMANUEL today!  He is worthy of our praise and worship.

Spurgeon sermons are great!  It’s true…  if God were not with us, we’d be – well – lost in a very literal sense.

Keep this truth in mind during the Christmas season and throughout the year ahead.  GOD IS WITH ME…  GOD IS WITH YOU.  You can be by yourself, but remember, you are never alone and therefore, I hope you are not lonely.  Christ is, by all accounts, the BRIDGE between God and fallen man.  No matter what question you may ask, Christ is the answer.  I pray your day is filled with wonder and that your eyes will be opened to new truths from God’s Word.
