Emmanuel: God with us.
God with us.
God, Himself, with us.
Every moment. Of every day. With you. With me.
Walking. Talking. Listening. Leading.
God. The Creator of the Universe. The Lover of our Souls. The One who gave His very life for ours. The One who knows us. All of us. Every part of us. And loves us without condition.
God. The One who formed us. The One who knows us by name. The One who purposed our lives and planned our destinies.
God. The One who takes great delight in us. Not for what we do, but simply for who we are: His beloved children.
God. The One who sits with us. The One who talks with us. The One who rejoices over us with singing and smiles upon our every moment.
God. God with us.
In the every day. In the every moment.
Here. And now.
God, our God, is with us.
"Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son, and they will call Him Immanuel,
which means 'God is with us.'"
Matthew 1:23 NLT
For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on His shoulders. And He will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. His government and its peace will never end. He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of His ancestor David for all eternity. The passionate commitment of the Lord of Heaven's Armies will make this happen!
Isaiah 9:6-7 NLT
For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty Savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With His love, He will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs. Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
