God is with us!
In today’s day and age many question whether God is with us, as they see the fragmentation of our world and closer to home these United States. There are times when I, myself, have cried out to the Lord asking Him where He is and why He has not intervened to bring about positive change. Yes, time after time I have proclaimed the statement “Come, Lord Jesus!”
Yet, in my heart I know God is with us each and every day. If that were not the case, then I am certain this world and all that exists would be no more. We are called as people of God, to be people of hope in the most uncertain and alarming moments. For we have a God who cared enough about us to enter into the flesh and live among us as one of us. He endured what you and I endure and even more, and in so doing He made a way for us to have everlasting life, when there was no way for us to attain it on our own. In Jesus, He was with us, is with us, and will be forever with us!
I ran across this hymn, and I thought it would be a wonderful addition to this devotion. As you will be able to see from reading it that the author definitely believed God is with us. Take it to heart and be confident that nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus “Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered. ”No in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
