Day 361

IMMANUEL, GOD WITH US

"And they will call him Immanuel"

—which means, "God with us."

Matthew 1:23

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, in between the miracles and celebrations of life are the most difficult times for you to remember Me. Mountaintop moments bring just that—moments of My glory that I allow as a sneak preview of things to come. But what goes up must come down. In the valleys and as you walk through ordinary days, My power is still yours for the asking and receiving. I am Immanuel, God with us. And I am with you day in and day out—forever.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
You are Immanuel, God with us, daily. You no longer live in columns of clouds or pillars of fire.  Your home is not confined to the walls of a tabernacle, church, or temple. You are not just a babe of Bethlehem. Thank You, Lord, that You now live in my heart.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Others listen more closely when you're in the valley than they do when you're on the mountaintop.
