Lady V’s Devotional Episode
Matthew 1:23 ESV says this:
“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, God with US).
When we enter a dark room, it is instinct to turn on the light. There is something inside of us that says— “I need to see where I am going”. Yet, in life when things get it’s darkest, we ignore the whispers to reach for ‘The LIGHT’”.
The LIGHT, Jesus, God with us, came into the world to help us to see beyond the darkness. Jesus came to open blinded eyes, to reveal The TRUTH that we all need a Savior to deliver us from the darkness.
But not just any savior—we needed THE SAVIOR of the world. We needed Jesus, Immanuel—God with us!
The prophet Isaiah and Matthew, the apostle, made the proclamation of who Jesus IS—as did many others.
Isaiah called HIM a Great Light, a Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:2-6, ESV). And Matthew called HIM “Immanuel” which means God with us (Matthew 1:23).
Thus, we should never entertain the thoughts of being alone. We that are in Christ have the GREATER ONE with us. He is the Light that shines in the darkness. Jesus Christ—The Light in which the darkness has not overcome (John 1:5).
HE is the name you call on when you need saving from the darkness. Thus, there is nothing or no one else who can save you.
JESUS is ALL we need!
Jesus IS and always will be GOD with us.
We are never alone! The Greater ONE (IMMANUEL) is walking with us.
Beloved, if you are facing dark times there is a way out of darkness. The NAME that lights the way and roots out darkness. The NAME that is THE WAY!
HIS NAME is JESUS, IMMANUEL, GOD WITH US! The NAME above every name!
So, don’t keep stumbling around in the dark!
Jesus IS the LIGHT of the world!
REACH FOR THE LIGHT!!
We come to you in the Name of Jesus, Immanuel, our God who is with us. We are thankful for Your Word that reveals that You are ONE.
We thank you for YOUR great love through YOUR SON, our LORD and Savior, JESUS.
FATHER GOD, we thank YOU for loving us and extending such grace to us through YOUR Son.
Thank YOU for the gift of YOUR HOLY SPIRIT, given to help us as we walk through this life.
Thank YOU, ABBA FATHER, that you sent us Jesus to light the way as HE is revealed as the LIGHT of the world, the TRUTH, THE WAY, and THE LIFE.
Thank YOU that YOU’VE given us the promise through YOUR Word that you will never leave us nor abandon us. For YOU are with us now and in ETERNITY.
We thank YOU FATHER for gifting us with Salvation through YOUR Son Jesus.
And Father God, I pray that every Believer will be reminded every day that we are not alone because YOU ARE WITH US.
Thank YOU for loving us and keeping us.
We love YOU Abba! All glory to your Name!
And it’s in Jesus Name we pray…AMEN, AMEN, AMEN!
Grace and Peace to you all. And remember that JESUS IS LORD!
