God is with us

ChristmasJesusMary-GraphicsFairy1God is with us by Nolan Clark

“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son,

and they shall call his name Immanuel”

(which means “God with us”) Matt. 1:23.

This has always been the secret of the saints.

    David overcame Goliath because God was with him.

    Job endured all the trials of the enemy because God was with him.

    Joseph went from prison to palace because God was with Him.

    Be with God. Live close to Him.

He was in the lowly manger. He dwells in highest heaven, but also with the humble hearts.

    Make room for Immanuel.

Moses wanted God with him above all, for even the Promised Land without the Presence is empty.

    It was the Presence of God that made Eden. Without God it’s just another garden.

Long before God was in Eden, Eden was in God.

    Jesus does not merely have a resurrection and life, Jesus is the resurrection and the life.

    My point is get Immanuel and everything God is and does comes with Him.

    Seek first the kingdom and everything else is added.

Just make room for God. Immanuel only needs a manger, just a heart open to Him.

Merry Christmas!
