This is the name which was spoken by prophecy through Isaiah concerning the birth of Jesus. Thus, the fulfilling of that prophecy came to pass in the Gospel’s. For (Matt 1:23) says “Behold a virgin shall be with child, and bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.” Hence, for the believer it’s good to know that God is with us. It’s good to know during these uncertain times that we have an advocate, or someone who has our best interest at heart. It is no doubt that God has our best interest at heart; it may not always be what we thought, however, it is always what’s best for us.
If we are operating in obedience to God he is with us. In fact, David said “when my father and mother forsake me then the Lord will take me up (Psalm 27:10);” meaning that the Lord will be there for us when no one else will. There may be someone out there today asking themselves is God really real? Will God ever come through for me? Is God with me? Child of God he is with you.
Don’t give up; don’t quit trusting him; wait on the Lord and be of good courage. About the time when you are on the verge of giving up and throwing in the towel, is right around the time that God shows up. At least that’s the way it seems; however, He was always there, but sometimes we allow our circumstances to become bigger than our God, which keeps us from being able to see and feel God in our lives. Continue to trust him saints, because he is always with us.
God Bless You
