Dec 3 Immanuel

I can think of no name more significant than "Immanuel".  This name was given to Jesus by the prophet Isaiah 700 years before His birth (Isaiah 7:14). 

Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. 

Immanuel is a Hebrew word meaning "God is with us". 

He didn't have to come, but He did, so that we could understand that He was with us, that He would never leave us, that he had complete understanding of the struggles that we might face every day. 

Struggles with 
places to stay
those who didn't understand Him
those who didn't like Him
those who wanted to put Him to death

He gets it!  He has gone through it!When no one understands what you are feeling or going through, Jesus understands, because He is Immanuel, God is with us!
In our life there will be trouble, but Immanuel is with us. All power, all authority is with us!  If Jesus is with us, then we are more than conquerors!  Even in the darkest hours He is with us, He understands.  If you are a follower of Jesus,  Be completely assured that Immanuel is with you. 


Jesus, I am so grateful that you are Immanuel, not only that you came to earth in human form and experienced what we experienced, but also that you came so that we know that you understand, we are never alone. You tell us that you will never leave us or forsake us, that you are with us always even to the end of the age. Thank you. Jesus, Our Immanuel we celebrate you, we thank you for being with us! In those moments when we feel so desperately alone, whisper to us, I am here, I understand, I am Immanuel!
