Weekly Devotional: God With Us!!

As we come closer to the wonderful Christmas Day, I encourage everyone to think about the meaning of Christmas. Why is that we celebrate Christmas? What happened on this day? I know that sometimes we can get so wrapped up in getting gifts and worrying about the gift aspect when in reality we all have the best gift that we can celebrate!! 

Matthew 11:23 says "Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us." 

Son of God, Jesus, is Emmanuel. Emmanuel means God with us. If Jesus came to Earth to save us and live within all of us with His Spirit, then God is with us. We have this gift of having the royalty running through our veins. We are kings, queens and conquerors. For myself, there are times when I do walk as not a conqueror. I will doubt what God has given me or doubt the placements or positions that He has given me. I doubt sometimes the gift God has placed in myself. But since God lives with us and we are royalty, then we have to live our lives as royalty. We have to walk and talk as royalty. 

Acts 1:8 says that "
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth." When God's Spirit comes upon us, we receive power. When God is living in us, anything is possible. When God is with us, we can reach our full potential. 

Romans 8:37 says "Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us." We are MORE THAN CONQUERORS!!! We are ROYALTY!!!
Ladies, you are queens. Men, you are kings. We have to walk and act as kings and queens. We have power and authority and gifts that God has blessed all of us. I encourage you throughout the whole year and not just a particular time to embrace your kingship. Embrace your royalty with humility. There is no need to walk in depression or with our heads down and there is no need to walk with a cocky mindset. We have to walk with the mindset of purpose, strength and humility. 

Love this song!! It reminds me all the time that there is purpose and that there is royalty running through our veins. Let's embrace it!!

Be blessed my fellow kings and queens!!
God Bless,
