Immanuel, this name beautifully sums up the entire gospel message. Immanuel, declares that our BIG God’s desire is to be with us! That the God of Heaven would know what it is to be human and show us His love by sacrificing Himself to save us. Thank you, Immanuel! We are so glad we have a God who’s big story is all about wanting to be with us!
A WISE STEWARD
2 Chronicles 1:11-12
In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You
I pray that you will desire to be a wise steward more than you desire riches and honor. May you realize that riches and honor fade away, but wisdom in stewardship endures. Understand that riches and honor are gained through living wisely. Riches and honor without God’s wisdom and stewardship will only corrupt you. May God deem you as a wise steward that can be trusted with little, so that He will entrust you with much more. Seek the Lord’s wisdom to be a good steward.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
How do you move forward when your life seems to be crashing down? Worst of all, the rest of the world keeps on moving as if nothing happened. Babies die, homes are repossessed, humans are bought and sold in slavery; all the while it seems people turn a blind eye. When we falter, remember that Jesus is your rock. He feels your pain and knows what you are going through and He can carry you through it. Lean on Him.
As you journey through life with Me, see the hope of heaven shining on your path—lighting up your perspective. Remember that you are one of My chosen people, belonging to Me. I called you out of darkness into My wonderful Light. Savor the richness of these concepts: I chose you before the creation of the world, so nothing can separate you from Me. You belong to Me forever! I drew you out of the darkness of sin and death into the exquisite Light of eternal Life.
The brightness of My Presence helps you in multiple ways. The closer to Me you live, the more clearly you can see the way forward. As you soak in this Love-drenched Light, I give you strength and bless you with Peace. My radiance blesses not only you but also other people as it permeates your whole being. This time spent focusing on Me helps you become more like Me, enabling you to shine into the lives of others. I’m continually drawing My loved ones out of darkness into My glorious Light.
You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
~ 1 Peter 2:9
For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.

For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.
~ Romans 8:2 [ESV]
The Lord will give strength to His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace.
