Isaiah 7:14 & Matthew 1:18 – 24

Before the world came to be, our God proved of how much of a loving and caring Creator that He is. Before all things were created, He thought about us. As prophesied in the book of Isaiah 7:14, He will be called Immanuel which means “God with us.” This does not only imply that He will be with us merely as a friend or as a buddy, it’s more than that. He will be with us in everything… He will be our everything! The authors of the Bible and even the Christians in olden times wrote and spoke about what God was to them. For some, He was their provider, to others their comforter, healer, etc. These men and women not only spoke out of divine revelation but through their personal experiences with the Lord.

 

  1. Provider

1 Tim.6:17 – God provides us with everything for our enjoyment

Psa.111:5 – He provides food for us

Psa. 147:9 – He provides food for our cattle

Matt. 6:26-28 – Worry not about clothes, God even provides for the lilies and the birds

 

II. Comforter

2 Cor. 1:3-4 – He is the God of all comfort who comforts us in ALL our troubles

Psa. 147:3 – He heals the broken hearted

Matt. 5:4 – those who mourn will be comforted

 

III. Protector

Psa. 23:4 – He is with you in your darkest hours

Psa. 9:9 – He is a refuge to the oppressed

2 Thess. 1:6-7 – He will protect you from those who trouble you

 

IV. Bondage Breaker

Heb. 4:15 – We have a High Priest that helps us out in our weaknesses

Heb. 5:2 – He knows how to handle those who fall into sin

Luke 4:18b – He came to set the prisoners free

2 Cor. 4:17 – He promised us an eternal glory that will outweigh all our light and momentary troubles

 

V. Savior

Acts 13:23 – From David’s line God brought the Savior Jesus Christ
