One of the names we can call God is “Emmanuel,” which translates to “God with us.” What does this phrase truly mean for us as God’s sons and daughters?
In an episode of Standing Together with Ben and Jodie Hughes, powerful words of encouragement were shared for their viewers. The couple further explains what “Emmanuel,” one of God’s names, really means for us.
Jodie emphasized how God has been with us in every season we are in. God has and will always be with us in our journey in this life. That is a reminder for everyone who is feeling lonely and alone, you are never alone, God is with you.
“Isn’t it an amazing thing that God calls himself ‘God with us,’ when we really start to think about that? God almighty, Creator of the universe, our Creator, calls himself ‘God with us.’ He’s wanting to be known by the fact that He’s our God who’s journeying in life with us on the good days, the hard days, and the horrible days,” Jodie emphasized.
God with us
Jodie then referenced Jeremiah 33:3 to explain how we, as sons and daughters of God, can just call unto Him and He will answer.
“Our Father comes to us and meets us and talks to us in words and in a heart language that we can understand and hear,” she said. “To get back to Jeremiah 33:3 again, ask of me and I will answer. Let’s not make it hard.”
