To know Immanuel (God is with us)
It’s a blessing to know that God is with us. This is something we should have in our hearts when we go through. We must know this when things are good and when things are bad, amen. Each day I wake up I want to know that God is with me, because surely goodness and mercy I need to follow me daily. When we suffer for Christ’s sake, then it’s a blessing, it’s a joy, it’s a comfort to know God is with us. As Jesus spoke these words “My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?” He knew that God was with Him for sure. He knew that God would rise Him up in three days. His goal was to obey His Father. And we are to obey and know that God is with us through it all.
