But committed to bring us back into relationship with Him, God put His redemptive plan in place. This is what the prophets foretold.
One day, a virgin would bear a child—God's son—who would live among the people and restore them back into fellowship with the Father. His name would be Immanuel, which means, "God is with us. The virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel" Is. For thousands of years, God's people waited with expectancy for this child whose presence would change everything. And indeed, Immanuel came. The first Christmas Day some years ago celebrated the first time since creation that God cohabited with humankind. His arrival inaugurated a re-creation and reconciliation, again bringing light to darkness and returning God's people back into His delight.
Every year in the Advent season, we look to Christmas Day as the return of God with us. That's what Advent means. But Advent need not end with Christmas Day.
Because of Christmas, we no longer await the arrival of God with us—He is here! Rather, we now live in expectancy of the expression of God's presence in us. There's nothing more supernatural than the Creator living in you. So this season, begin to expect the blessings of His presence. Expect the manifestation of His light to penetrate your darkest circumstances; His joy to replace your sorrows; and His peace to calm your worries.
Yes, this Advent season, expect His presence to change everything about you. Kyle Winkler equips people to live in victory.

If you need an instant boost of confidence that God will work something out in your life, begin to study the stories of God's power in the lives of others. Remember, God doesn't show favoritism Rom. If He did it for someone else, He can also do it for you.
Finally, Paul's confidence that he and his crew would make it out alive came because he set his eyes on God's Word. The Lord had revealed to Him that he would stand before the emperor, and thus Paul determined to trust God's Word over even a seemingly deadly storm Acts Paul's expectation founded on the assurance of God's Word. This is an extremely practical method for us today. With thousands of promises throughout Scripture, we have plenty of reasons for great expectations. Maybe it's time you take inventory of your expectations.
If your mantra sounds more like, "Whatever can go wrong, will go wrong," then you're missing out on huge potential for positive transformation in your life. Whatever the situation, ask the Holy Spirit to lead you to Scriptures, promises and stories that bolster your faith that something good is going to happen.
