May You Know Him as Emmanuel God With You

Know God as Immanuel, God is with you always. Slow down your anxious thoughts as you listen in stillness and with anticipation of His voice.

May you know Him as…
The God who sings over you and with you in Joy
The God who rejoices over you and with you.
The God whose mountains and hills break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of His fields clap their hands
The God who walks beside you, delighting with you as He directs your every step.
May you know Him as…
The God who compassionately comforts you as a Father in all your troubles
The God who strengthens your inner man by His Spirit that is always with you.
The God who is your strength, your refuge and a very evident and present help.
The God who is your shield and protection when you are under attack.
The ever-present God who is eternally your peace.
For unto us a child is born,
Unto us a son is given:
And the government shall be upon his shoulder:
And his name shall be called
Wonderful, Counsellor,
The mighty God,
The everlasting Father,
The Prince of Peace. Isa 9:6
And that child grew up
To become…
Our Saviour.
Our Redeemer
Our Portion
Our Strong Tower
Our Friend.

Know God as Immanuel, God is with you always. Slow down your anxious thoughts as you listen in stillness and with anticipation of His voice.

Slow down, you might ask? I am in isolation, I won’t be with family this year for Christmas, there is no Christmas celebration at my church,  the usual hustle and bustle of the season is just not there. What do you mean, slow down? Things are at a crawl as it is.

Slow down those anxious thoughts,  your worries about tomorrow, and your frustration with what is happening in your nation, your town, or home.

How on earth can I do that?

Step away from Social Media for a bit, turn on some worship music or peaceful Christmas music and rest.  Read your favourite Bible passages, the ones you always go to, it’s allowable this time of year. Call someone, yes, actually call them. Reach out for connection that goes beyond a few words in a text or a couple of emoticons.
