Immanuel - God with us

Last year as I thought about the blessed incarnation of Christ, the Word dwelling among us in flesh, my thoughts were shadowed by the cross of Christ.

This year as I think about the Word coming to tabernacle amongst us, I am mindful of His return.

It is no surprise, really, that the world can find it in its heart to acknowledge the birth of Christ upon the earth. A baby in a manger doesn't challenge us. Little Jesus, meek and mild.

This year, I want to shout out the truth, that He is coming again. And His second coming will be so different to His first coming.

As I remember the coming of the King this year, I am overawed. My Jesus, My King, My Saviour, My Lord…I bow my knee before Him. May He grant me a greater boldness in the coming year to proclaim the year of His favour, the year of Jubilee. 


  1. Wonderful!

    I am printing this and adding it to our "Christmas by the hour" readings.

    Praise God for the Advent of our Savior!

    1. Thank you, Becky! Praise God indeed. The great promise of Immanuel - God with us - He will swallow up death forever, wipe away tears from our faces, and remove the disgrace of His people from the earth (Isa 25:8). What a Saviour! Love and blessings to you, Becky!

  2. Glory.
    This is our God. A God of contrasts, a God of certainty.

    Thank you for such a sharp-edged post. Much needed in this hour.
    And all the fullness of deity lives in bodily form...(Col. 2:9)


    1. Thank you, Liz, I'm always blessed by what you add through your comments :)
      A God of certainty who will fulfil His Word, every promise....yes, this is our God.
      God bless you.

  3. Amen! Incredible Diana, just what I needed to meditate on today. Love you my friend, so thankful for your posts as always

    1. So glad this blessed you, Teresa. Love you too ♥

    2. What a great reminder... There is coming a day when everything shall be made right! How thankful I am for a God who keeps His promises.
