So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”
God did not come for a visit or for a vacation, He came to stay. He also, did not come to earth to condemn us, He came to provide salvation and give us life. They shall call His name “Immanuel,” He is with us and He is for us.
Jesus said, “I am with you always, even to the end of the world.” That is His promise to you, right now and forever. Since He is with you right now, you can be assured that He will supply your every need.
Do you need food on your table? Get ready to cook for the beans and rice are on the way. Do you need healing for your sore and achy joints? The “balm of Gilead” is with you. Are you confused by the myriad of voices spouting off? There is One who will not confuse you and that is Jesus. For He has the “words of eternal life.”
Jesus Is With Us
When the angel announced that they will call His name Immanuel he was not just whistling Dixie. Jesus is with us. He is with us in the most powerful and glorious way. Pray that God will help you to recognize His wonderful in your life today and every day.
This little song says it so well: “He is here, hallelujah, He is here, amen. He is here, holy, holy. I will praise His Name again. He is here, listen to Him, He is calling out your name. He is here, you can touch Him, and you will never be never be the same.” Friend, He is with you right now through the Holy Spirit. Amen.
