TODAY’S MEDITATION – God is with you (Isaiah 7:14)

My brother, my sister, God is with you! Remember that He said He will never leave you nor forsake you, and to ensure His Word is true, He sent His Spirit to dwell in you, so wherever you go, wherever you are, GOD IS WITH YOU! What a comfort, what a reassurance to know that!
Today, you may be wondering why you do not have the feeling that God is with you. Well, then, ask Him for a sign, just like Isaiah prophesied on the royal family of David saying: “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel” (Isaiah 7:14).
Now, we all know this prophecy came to pass as Jesus, which means, “the Lord saves” came into this world to save us because we cannot save ourselves from sin and its consequences. No matter how good we are, we cannot eliminate the sinful nature present in all of us. Only Jesus can do that, and He defeated sin, death and the devil… for us!
My friend, allow Jesus your Saviour to also take control of your life, then you will truly live to experience Immanuel (God is with you) too. Yes, God is already with you: when He first came, Jesus was God in flesh; thus, God was literally among us, with us! Today, through the Holy Spirit, Christ is present in the life of every believer. So, be comforted, be reassured that you are not alone. No matter what you are going through, Christ is in that situation with you, BECAUSE HE IS WITH YOU. So, trust in Him, for He overcame every physical, mental or spiritual issue you may be going through right now. Stay blessed in Jesus’ name.
