God is With Us!
GOD IS WITH US!
“For God is with Us”
‘God is with us’, Those four words strike terror in the heart of our enemies! How it must have disturbed hell the day the Lord gave the sign: ‘The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel (God with us)’
When the angel announced to Mary that she would conceive, he referred to Isaiah’s prophecy of the one who would ‘reign on David’s throne’ (Isaiah 9:7 “9:7 Of the increase of [his] government and peace [there shall be] no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this”). He would be called ‘Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace’. When he arrived, ‘the people walking in darkness’ would see ‘a great light’. How perfectly this prophecy was fulfilled when Jesus stepped onto the shores of ‘Galilee of the Gentiles’ and began to undo the works of darkness.
Whatever darkness or trouble we are in today, we must remember that God came in human flesh, born of a virgin to signal satan’s defeat and the reign of God’s kingdom. Immanuel is here to stay…and He is now living in us.
OUR PRAYER TOGETHER
“Dear Heavenly Father, enlighten my mind through the Holy Spirit so that I may know your truth in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen”
