O come, O come Emmanuel.

Isaiah 7:14

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

God is given so many names throughout the bible, but none so significant than Immanuel. The name which was first given to Jesus by the prophet Isaiah 700 years before his birth. And this special name as Matthew tells us means ‘God with us’.

He really is with us. He understands it all, no life is too messy for Him, no pain is too great…He has felt fear and shame and he wants to bear our burdens. it may take great courage to let Him into the deepest and darkest areas of our lives but we can be set FREE.

As we face a new year what greater promise knowing that God is with us through it all.

Hebrews 13:5- “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
