And on the 3rd day….
I’m curious to know what you completed it with 😂
Today is such a good day on the praying the names of God series because today’s name is much more than just a name it is a Covenant.
This name was a prophecy in Isaiah 7:14 which was fulfilled in Matthew where the angel speaking to Joseph in a dream after he had planned to put away secretly Mary the mother of Jesus after he found out she was with child.
You know I love you guys so let me just give you the accurate gist here
“The birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. His mother Mary had been promised to Joseph in marriage. But before they were married, Mary realized that she was pregnant by the Holy Spirit. Her husband Joseph was an honorable man and did not want to disgrace her publicly. So he decided to break the marriage agreement with her secretly. Joseph had this in mind when an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream. The angel said to him, “Joseph, descendant of David, don’t be afraid to take Mary as your wife. She is pregnant by the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus [He Saves], because he will save his people from their sins.” All this happened so that what the Lord had spoken through the prophet came true: “The virgin will become pregnant and give birth to a son, and they will name him Immanuel,” which means “God is with us.” When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him to do. He took Mary to be his wife. He did not have marital relations with her before she gave birth to a son. Joseph named the child Jesus.”
Matthew 1:18-25 GW
Here we get the actual definition of the name
Oh! I love this name – IMMANUEL – God is with me. Just take a few minutes and think about the awesomeness of that revelation.
Do you know what it means for God to be with you? Have you ever been in a fight with a bully and then someone bigger than them showed up and says I’m with her? Hmmm… I’m sure you know that bully will take off faster than their legs can carry them. That’s what it means for God to be with you. Nothing can bully you – not sickness, poverty, not even life itself.
When God is with you VICTORY IS SURE!
And the beauty of IMMANUEL is that He doesn’t send angels. He makes sure He goes with you personally and sees to it that every promise He makes He keeps.
Today I need you to remember this that God is with you ALWAYS
Okay I’ve got to run
Love you guys plenty
Oh! Before I forget worship song for today is Emmanuel
