Immanuel

Read this in my devotional this morning:

"We need never doubt the truth of God's presence with us. Jesus Christ is Immanuel - a name that literally means 'God with us'. Christ's life, death, and resurrection are the supreme evidence that God will go to any lengths - even paying the ultimate cost of His only Son - to dwell among His people.
God is truly with us ...
Wherever we are.
Whenever we feel abandoned or alone.
Whatever circumstances we are going through.
It is our privilege to be in relationship with God for eternity. This is why He came to earth, and this is why He died. May our lives be filled with Immanuel."

by Cynthia Heald, Abiding in Christ, pg. 31-32

Thought you'd like to read this. Blessings!
