It reminds us that "The Lord mighty in battle" is our God who fights for us (Exodus 14:14). The battles we face are endless: We see our grief, our loneliness, our failures, even our overwhelming to-do lists. In whatever season you are in with the Lord, and whatever battle you are facing, it is easy to fix our gaze on our struggles, so much so that we miss the coming of the King of Glory. As we celebrate the coming of Jesus, may we lift our eyes so that we may welcome Him in. May He be at home in our hearts, our minds, our homes, our workplaces. May your Christmas celebration not be consumed by the presence of activities that steal your focus off of Jesus, but by Holy Spirit filled moments that cause you to lift up your head and stay fixed on Jesus.
