    When challenges, trials and tribulations come, we are so often tempted to lose hope and give up. At these times, we can look to the Old Testament scriptures.

    The celebration of Christmas each year serves to remind each and every one of us that God has made these promises to us, and He keeps them, and that He is the same yesterday, today, and forever, Hebrews (13:8). God never changes. He has proved His trustworthiness by sending His Son Jesus, the long-promised “Emmanuel” meaning “God with us”, Matthew (1:22-23), and has made all His promises available to us through Jesus.
