Today we are looking at several names and attributes of God, including Immanuel, and one wonderful gift He has given us.
Immanuel: God with us. The great Creator actually came down to earth to be with us, with sinful man.
Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
God is Immutable or unchanging. He has never changed, and He will never change. When we wake in the morning, we never have to wonder if God is different than He was the day before, if He will expect different things of us than He has in the past. He is always the same as He has always been. And His Word to us, the Bible is also unchanging
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.
God is infinite, meaning He is without limit. This is one of my favorite attributes of God because it can be combined with other attributes. God is our Infinite Provider: His provision is without limit. He is Infinitely Wise: His wisdom is without limit. He is Infinitely Trustworthy: our trust in Him will never be misplaced.
Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.
By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament.
Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
What a wonderful thought that Jesus Himself makes intercession for us to the Father. And He isn’t the only member of the Trinity Who does that for us. The Holy Spirit also intercedes for us.
Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
