Sunday Inspiration: God with Us

by Jim Hughes


“Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son, and He will be called Immanuel (meaning, God is with us).” – Matt. 1:23, NKJV

God is with us, GOD is with us. God is WITH us. God is with US. No matter how you say it, this is the grandest news man has ever heard!


GOD is with us. The designer, creator, and sustainer of all that is, is with us. The beginning and end of all things is with us. The giver of all life and the hope of all ages is with us. He who knows all things knows us for He became one of us. He who cannot be contained for all heaven is His footstool, became flesh and dwelt for a while amongst us.


God IS with us. No matter how distant God may at times seem to be, He IS with us. How can we know for sure it is true? He said it is so. He has declared that He is with us, that He will never leave or forsake us, even unto the end of the earth.

God is WITH us. God did not create us and leave us to fend for ourselves. He does not reside in heaven and leaves us alone. God is with us. He is with us in whatever we go through in life. He is with us to help us when we lose our way. He is with us when we are confused and frustrated in the times of life. He is with us all the days of our lives, both now and forever.


God is with US. God is with us, His children. God is with all who come to Him for the forgiveness of their sins and choose to live under His authority over their lives. He has chosen US to be His children and live holy lives. Do not fear what comes your way, God is with US.


Immanuel, God with us, is the Christmas story.
