God with You

Hundreds of years before Jesus was born, Isaiah prophesied that a virgin would bring forth a special Son whose name would mean, “God with us.” In ways people could not have expected, Jesus perfectly fulfilled this promise.

He was born into a world in which pagans honored numerous deities and heroes who were said to have special powers. But Jesus was different: He was “God with us.”

Some had thought that this Emmanuel would be a mighty ruler. A triumphant warrior. But Jesus revealed what it meant to have “God with us.”

Through His life, we see a demonstration of compassion and concern. He became a real human being, so He was able to “sympathize with our weaknesses.” He was “tempted in every way, just as we are—yet was without sin.” This means that we can “approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need” (Hebrews 4:15-16). He is our Great High Priest, who “always lives to make intercession” for us (Hebrews 7:25).

Today, that same Jesus is with you in every situation you face. Every crisis. Every trial. Every temptation. When you go through problems, He is by your side. When you have decisions to make, He is there to provide wisdom. If you are sick, He is there to heal you. If you are discouraged, He is there to give you hope. And, you can call on Him anytime, day or night.

Right now, call on Him with faith, boldness, and confidence for the needs you face. He is Almighty God, and He is with you!
