“The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”)” (Matthew 1:23)
Dear friend, today God reminds us that His name is Emmanuel which means God is with us. We read in Matthew 1:23, “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”)”. According to this verse God is certainly with you. Today you might be saying, “I have so many problems in my life; problems in job or school or studies or family or children or spouse and you might be so stressed and worried but remember that God is with you to fight for you. We read in Romans 8:31, “What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?”
In the Bible we see how the Lord was with David. The Israelites were facing a huge giant, literally a giant in front of them day by day and they were terrified by His threatening. They thought that they would soon lose to the Philistines. Nobody had the courage to fight against him because they listened to his threatening words and saw his humungous body instead of looking to God. It took a small boy’s giant faith on God to topple Goliath. We read what David says when he saw Goliath, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the LORD Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. (1 Samuel 17:45)” David was the only one who saw God’s incomparable power. He spoke His faith so God fought for Him and gave him victory.
Yes my friend, God is with you to fight all your battles for you. Today you might see your problem and be afraid seeing how big it is. You might be worried that problems are stacking up but look at your problem and say, “My God is bigger than my problem.” Your God is bigger than whatever you might be facing. Keep confessing your faith in God. Keep singing His praises. Then God will remove all the obstacles and give you peace regarding your situations. He will help you overcome them. Yes God is with you as a mighty warrior and He will fight for you. Have this faith today and don’t keep mumbling but just keep praising God for His with you and for you.
Thank You for reminding me that You are with me. Remove all the fears regarding the problems in my life Lord. Remove every obstacle in my life. Give me confidence to face my life. Be with me as a mighty warrior and fight my battles.
In Your Name I pray, Amen.
