MFM Daily Devotional 8 February 2023 MESSAGE
The abiding, indwelling and empowering presence of God in a life makes all the difference that anyone can desire. The Bible reveals one of the names of Jesus Christ as Emmanuel, which means God with us! Jesus had to be with mankind to deal decisively with the problem of sin and save us from it.
Also, on the day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit descended and began to indwell believers. This also proves that God is with us. As believers, we are carriers of God’s presence, power, grace and glory. When God is with you and for you, you will triumph in the battles of life and over your enemies. The challenges of life, no matter the guise they take, will not overwhelm you. Beloved, the weapons the enemy hurls at you will not prosper if God is with you and for you.
When God is with you, He will use you as a special vessel to accomplish great and mighty things. In fact, many of the people God chose and used as His purpose partners in the Bible- Joshua, Mary the mother of Jesus, Gideon, etc. – were assured with the words, “God is with you” (Joshua 1:5; Luke 1:28; Judges 6:12).
God was with David and He delivered him from the hand of raging King Saul. He was with Apostle Peter and He delivered him from Herod’s incarceration and the expectation of the enemies of the early church. He was with Apostle Paul and though their ship wrecked, Paul’s life and those of other passengers with him were saved. He was with Daniel and the lions could not kill him. He was with Meshach, Shadrach and Abednego and the fire in the fiery furnace could not hurt them.
When God is with you, He will make impossible situations possible. He will make your Jordan and Red Sea to part; He will make a way in the wilderness for you and provide rivers in your desert. Beloved, this year, pray that the Lord will be your Shepherd and you will not suffer want. He will be with you in your journey of life and give you rest round about, in the name of Jesus.
