Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.. – Isaiah 7:14
Many of us associate Isaiah 7:14 with the Christmas story. Matthew even refers back to this verse as evidence of a prophecy fulfilled through the birth of Christ. We sing the name “Immanuel” in church. But what does that word really mean?
The definition of “IMMANUEL” is “GOD WITH US.” Isaiah spoke about how God would one day remove all that separated from His love and His power, and friends, there are days when I wonder how that could be possible for me and for a world full of sin. But Immanuel is the answer!
In one name, we are able to understand that Jesus is the way to be with God. He did everything that He could to remove the guilt and stain of sin from our lives; He sacrificed His popularity, His reputation, and His own life to guarantee that “IMMANUEL” became a truth, not just a word.
I get so excited about this because we, who were once separated from the light and love of God, now have a way to be made His dear children FOREVER. Jesus is the way! He is the one who showed us that God not only wants to be with us, but He will do anything and everything to make it happen!
Take a moment every day to thank God for the gift of His own Son’s life. The love that our Father in Heaven has for us is so immense, and by it we are powerful warriors, blessed and always close to our Lord! My prayer for you, today, is that you are filled with the desire to embrace Jesus as YOUR Immanuel, just as He desires to embrace you!
