I did a series of interviews at a college campus and ask two questions. The first was, “Do you believe in God?” Which I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised at how many said that they do believe in God. The second question was, “Do you believe that God has a specific plan for you?” The response to that was sad, most didn’t believe that he was that interested in them with all of the other things going on in the world. They believed that he exists, but not that he’s interested in them.

The truth however is so incredible, that the God who created us also wants to be with us. This reality was one of the primary ways that God wanted to be revealed, read this verse in Matthew.

The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him “Immanuel” (which means “God with us”). —Matthew 1:23

With this scripture in mind, I just released a 7 day devotional study called, IMMANUEL | GOD IS WITH US. You can download a free copy of it in English or Spanish at or on We also have a daily video that goes along with the daily reading. We’d love to have you join us on this journey of discovering what it means that God is with us. My prayer is that your heart is opened up to a greater reality of his presence and peace!

I’d love to hear your comments in the post below or on another social media platform as you study through this devotional. Below is the video introduction to the study.
