It’s a phrase thrown around at Christmas time – Emmanuel. It means “God with us”. When someone close to me became really sick at Christmas, I learned then, and in the following year, that God is always with me. It’s a promise He makes in the Bible:
Do you ever feel scared when you’re alone? Fear is a natural response to feeling alone. It’s easy to start thinking that God has abandoned you, especially when you’re having a tough time. During these times remember the words in Isaiah, God is with you always. This is something awesome to know about God.
