Daily Devotional - 23rd August, 2012 - God is with you!


Daily Devotional - 23rd August, 2012

There are so many Bible references sharing the fact that, 'God is with you'. It seems God is trying to tell us something about the 'immanence of God':

Joshua 1: 9 - 'Be strong and courageous, for the Lord your God is with you whether you go'.

Matthew 28:20 - [Jesus says] 'I will be with you to the very end of the age'.

Romans 8: 39 says, 'Nothing can separate us from the love of God'.

Psalm 139:7-8 says, 'Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there'.

The Scriptures are pretty clear. The Old Testament says it; Jesus says it; the Apostle Paul says it. God is with us... He is immanent, that is, God is close to us. The immanence of God is a fundamental reality of Christian spirituality.

So next time you pray, don't pray, 'God, please be with me today', but rather pray, 'God, help me understand you are with me today'.

Whatever the circumstance, whatever the situation, remember, God is with you.
