In Matthew 1:23, it is written, “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel.”

Emmanuel means “God is with us.” We believers have an unspeakable blessing – we have God’s presence all the time! And because God is with us…

1. Practice His Presence – Always remember that God sees all what we’re doing. Even if people do not see our actions, God does.

Psalm 32:8

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.

Exodus 13:21

And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead them along the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, that they might travel by day and by night.

Exodus 14:19

Then the angel of God who was going before the host of Israel moved and went behind them, and the pillar of cloud moved from before them and stood behind them.

Exodus 33:15

And he said to him, “If your presence will not go with me, do not bring us up from here.”

2. Be Empowered – Do not be afraid, for God is always present to protect and strengthen you.

Let us look into these passages:

1 John 4:4

Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

Romans 8:11

 If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.

3. Don’t take Him for granted – Always remember God, in the good and the bad. Thank Him for the challenges, and thank Him for the good times.

1 Thessalonians 5:19-22

Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies, but test everything; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.

2 Corinthians 3:17

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

Application:

Be God aware and don’t take God for granted. In the midst of this changing world, remember that God is the same, yesterday, today and tomorrow. He is always present, so always practice in His presence.
