If you haven't heard this old song by Michael Card I recommend it. Unlike other kings and kingdoms, which rise and fall, our King and his kingdom never diminish or crumble. Unlike pagan gods who rape and trick, our loving God gives and provides. Christ's name -- Immanuel, God with us -- is a good comfort to remind us that our God is with us and for us and against him nothing can stand.
For all those who live in the shadow of death
A glorious light has dawned
For all those who stumble in the darkness
Behold, your light has come.
Our God is with us!
And if God is with us, who could stand against us?
Our God is with us,
"Immanuel" by Michael Card
