I am so excited! I just feel that the presence of God is going to overwhelm us this Christmas Season!
Are you ready to be awed by His presence?
Are you ready to melt in His arms and just be speechless?
Are you ready to worship the King of Kings?
Yes! He was born a King, even though it didn’t look like it at the time.
Who would put a King in a manger?
I love how God shows up outside of our “box”!
He is so freaking awesome,
And He is ready to invade out time and our space as never before!
He did it before – when He came into this world.
Luke 2:8-20 In the same region there were shepherds staying out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord flashed and shone around them, and they were terribly frightened. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people. For this day in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord the Messiah. And this will be a sign for you by which you will recognize Him: you will find a Baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”
Then suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host angelic army praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, And on earth peace among men with whom He is well-pleased.” When the angels had gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds began saying one to another, “Let us go straight to Bethlehem, and see this wonderful thing that has happened which the Lord has made known to us.”
So they went in a hurry and found their way to Mary and Joseph, and the Baby as He lay in the manger. And when they had seen this, they made known what had been told them about this Child, and all who heard it were astounded and wondered at what the shepherds told them. But Mary treasured all these things, giving careful thought to them and pondering them in her heart. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all that they had heard and seen, just as it had been told them.
Do not be afraid. Your God has come to you. To hold you, to heal you, to save you and your family. This world is not all there is. There is so much more. We are citizens of Heaven thanks to the Lord who decided to enter His creation as a baby in a manger.
Lord, thank you for coming for all of us. You came to seek and to save the lost. you came to give us hope, a life, and a future. You did for us what we could not do for ourselves. You are our Hope, our Joy, our Savior, and our Future! Hallelujah! Bless God!
