A Prayer for God to Be with Us
By Tiffany Thibault
“Behold, the virgin shall be with youngster, and bear a Son, they usually shall name His identify Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.” Matthew 1:23 NKJV
I like to learn the scriptures and listen to them learn by others aloud. The valuable phrases carry peace to my coronary heart and encourage my religion with its fact. Within the midst of all of the sights and sounds of this Christmas season and the additional busyness that this time of yr brings into our already full lives, it’s so simple to gloss over the highly effective phrases discovered on this Bible verse. There are two important issues that we see on this verse.
First, we see a miracle. “A virgin will bear a baby.” This unimaginable sentence reveals simply how a lot God really loves us. He may have simply despatched Jesus into this world as a warrior preventing for injustice, or as a robust chief who would change the world with His authorities. As an alternative, He despatched a treasured little youngster to an unwed younger mom, right into a poor group that was oppressed by the Roman authorities. None of that is in any respect the way you and I could have deliberate for the Savior of the world to make His grand entrance. But God, in all His energy, selected to ship slightly child, why? As a result of His plans are at all times higher than ours.
The second unimaginable factor that we see on this verse is these phrases: “they shall name His identify Immanuel, which is translated, “God with us.”
His very identify, Immanuel, has a promise for us. The that means of His identify is highly effective in simply these three phrases: “God with us.” These phrases ought to carry consolation to us via their unimaginable readability. God is with us. God is with you. God is with you always, in all circumstances, in all of your excessive and low moments. God is with you in all of your tears and in all of your joys.
Jesus, the Savior of the world, got here as an toddler, grew to be a person, died on the cross for our sins, conquered dying via His resurrection, and can in the future return. So, this promise God is with you covers each element and each little nuance of your life. You possibly can go into this Christmas season comforted with these phrases. You possibly can start a contemporary new yr clinging to this promise. God is with you thru your todays, and He can be with you as you go into your entire tomorrows. God is with us. That is the rationale we will joyfully have fun that child born so way back who got here to alter the world in His good approach.
Thanks for being with me in each second of my life. Thanks that I by no means need to be alone as a result of You, God love me a lot that you’re right here with me at all times. Might every second of my day be full of that life-strengthening fact. I really like you, Lord.
In your identify, I pray, Amen
