I can’t believe we are only a week away from Christmas now. As we get closer to Christmas, we will look at Jesus’ birth and spend a day focusing on how God was present with Mary, Joseph, and then the angels. For today, let’s reflect on this month of Emmanuel so far. How has focusing on God being with us encouraged, challenged, or grown you? Personally, I need constant reminders of the one concept God is teaching me—like writing a devotional everyday! Even still, I forget he is WITH me, Emmanuel. When I stop and think of all the stories we’ve studied and the misfits of people God showed himself present to, my heart warms with God’s presence with me. I can still see Jesus gazing down at me wanting to know what I want him to do for me from Saturday’s devotional. I feel a deep security in knowing that I belong to God and He belongs to me. Take time today to look back over the month of devotions and reflect on how Emmanuel is WITH you. Feel free to share your reflections in the comments!
