Now all this took place to fulfill what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet: See, the virgin will become pregnant and give birth to a son, and they will name Him Immanuel, which is translated “God with us.”
God arranged all the events that took place during our Savior’s birth. They happened just as He said they would. He knew the end from the beginning, and He told us ahead of time just how it would be. He always holds true to His word.
During this time of year when life can become more hectic than joyful, let us remember the meaning behind His name. He is Immanuel – God with us. Regardless of the difficulty of your circumstance, remember that God is with you. He has arranged everything in place so His purpose will be fulfilled, and all those things that seem to frustrate you are only bringing His perfect will into place. Trust the God who is with you in the moment. Rejoice in the fact that He is here, and nothing is impossible with Him for those who believe!
Believe that God is with you. He has not left you alone to figure things out for yourself. He is right there with you. Through the pain, He is with you. Through the aching and sorrow, He is with you. Through the excitement and glee, He is with you. He is as close as your prayer and wants to communicate with you. Don’t forget Him during this special season that is really meant for Him. He is with you, so be sure to include Him in all you do.
Have a blessed day!
