God is With Us [Isaiah 7:14 Daily Devotional]
I’m still in the Christmas spirit, and I probably will be for the next couple of days. This verse is an ancient Jewish prophecy of Jesus’s coming. Sometime after this prophecy, the virgin, Mary, conceived and gave birth to Jesus. Immanuel means “God with us,” and Jesus’s birth meant that God is literally with us.
God is With Us – Applied
So what can you do in light of the fact that God is with you? There’s not much that you can’t do. You may be facing some seemingly impossible task, but the God of the universe is fighting alongside you. “God with us” means that the relationship struggles you’ve been having can be resolved in Jesus’s name. It may not be solved like you want it to be, though. However, there is relational freedom through Jesus, God with us. You can overcome those financial struggles you’ve been facing because God is with you. Your debt won’t likely disappear overnight, but with God’s strength, you can develop a plan to get out of debt and start living a life of generosity instead.
All of that and more is possible when God is with you. I encourage you to start living a life of confidence knowing that you can overcome the struggles and trials this world will throw at you.
Jesus, I thank you that you are for me. Help me to recognize the areas in my life that you want to empower me to overcome. Give me the strength to face relational and financial struggles with confidence knowing you are for me. It’s in your name I pray, amen.
