27 February 2024: GOD WITH US: JEHOVAH SHAMMAH – Genesis 39:1-3; Matthew 1:23

We have looked at the first manifestation of that name ‘Jehovah Shammah’ which is God for us. The second manifestation is God with us which Jesus came to manifest and demonstrate to us. God moved forward in that manifestation. He moved forward to ‘God with His people’ not just God for His people.

God manifested that He is with His people, making it a covenant, He gave Jesus the name Emmanuel meaning ‘God with us.’ God was not just satisfied being in heaven operating in the invisible realm, He came in the form of a man to dwell among us, giving us a hint of His desire for us, His people. When God is with you, it will make all the difference in the world.

From today, I want you to go to work, your places of assignment on the face of the earth with the knowledge that if God be for you, it doesn’t make a difference who is against you. The opposition becomes irrelevant, and God will make the difference.

God with you is a majority and the only way to get to that is to make Jesus your Lord and Saviour.

The personal presence of the Lord was with Joseph in Egypt. Moses knew the power of the presence of God. He said if your presence will not go with me, don’t take us from here. Many people start their day without securing the presence of God. Many people start a project without securing the presence of God and that is why it fails.

PRAYER: Lord, I welcome your presence into my life afresh, that whatever I do as a housewife, student, businessman, banker, pastor, or whatever, shall prosper in Jesus Name. Amen!

Leviticus 20:22-22:16, Mark 9:1-29, Psalm 43:1-5, Proverbs 10:18
