“Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.”  Isaiah‬ ‭7‬:‭14‬ ‭NIV‬‬


I love it!  GOD WITH US.  How often do we forget that we are not alone?

How often do we forget that the creator of the universe is with us and is for us?

How often do we forget that his love is freely given by God and not earned?

Thank you God for coming after us in your relentless pursuit of us.  Thank you that you are ALWAYS with us.  Thank you that our whole lives are in your hands and that we can trust in your control in every situation. 


“When we complain about the things God put on our plate, we are rejecting his ultimate purpose for us…We are called to speak out of a thankful heart of submission to God in every circumstance and situation.” -Paul David Tripp


"They shall call his name Immanuel—God with us, God in our nature, God at peace with us, in covenant with us." -Matthew Henry


God is with us.  God is good.  God is love.  God is grace.  God is mercy.  Thanks be to God.
