And His Name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. And He shall be called Immanuel (God with us). And the angel to Joseph, "You shall name Him Jesus, for He will save His people."

You are not alone. He knows how you feel, how you hurt. Regardless of what you are going through, He is with you.
You are fully known and fully loved. He knows your darkest sin, and loves you; your greatest fear, and comforts you; your biggest regret, and comes to remove it—to cast it as far as east is from west.
He came that Christmas Day that you can be set free from whatever it is that enslaves you. He gives peace that passes all understanding. You are not alone. You are fully known and fully loved.
Whatever enslaves you, give it to Jesus. "Give them all, give them all, give them all to Jesus—shattered dreams, wounded hearts, broken toys. Give them all to Jesus, and He will turn your sorrow into joy."
Today, know Him and love Him. His name reminds us that He knows our name and loves us. What a beautiful name it is: Matthew—Gift of God; Nathan—God Gives; Mary Catherine—Bitter Innocent; Caleb—Whole Heart, Loyal; Samuel—Heard of God.
Immanuel—God with us. He knows your name. Know His name today. Jesus—He came to save His people—all who would believe—Y
