Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. Isaiah 7:14

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting. Mich 5:2

His Birth Revealed

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them. Luke 2:8-20

We pray that your heart will rejoice with us in God’s marvelous provision in Christ the Lord, our Saviour!

May we too, glorify and praise God, as the shepherds did, during this holiday season and throughout the new year!

A Guided Life!

And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. Isaiah 58:11

How much do you trust in God? You may say that your trusting Him, but are you really? Is He guiding your life?

Christ has promised to be with you always! … For he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. (Hebrews 13:5).

God has big plans for you! Wonderful are His ways beyond your knowledge. Oh! realize His bounty and His goodness more and more — the wonder of being led each day by our Lord, and the beauty of a guided life!

This is the assurance and joy that is ours in Him. This is the privilege He bestows on us as His children. Your life is planned and blessed by God as never before. Trust in His guidance for your life. Seek Him early. His path leads to a totally fulfilling journey. His ways are always correct. He knows where we need to go and how to get there!

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5 & 6
