God With Us is God For Us

Jesus is not only with us as Emmanuel. Jesus is for us. He is our Savior, protector, guide, teacher, elder brother and God. He is fighting battles on our behalf. He prays to the Father for us. He has given us everything we need for life and health and peace. He is our champion, our David, who has killed death, defeating the devil and every lofty thought raised against Him. Jesus is the exalted King at the right hand of the Father, who is ruling over His Kingdom and advancing His will at just the right pace to fit His purposes.
         This Mighty God, Wonderful Counselor Prince of Peace is our amazing Savior, who deigns to reach down and bless each one of us just as He reached out and blessed the babes in arms that were carried to Him. How can we not be amazed at such amazing grace? If God is for us, who can be against us?
         Romans 8:3 In all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.  For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,  Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.
