“God with us.”

It is hell’s terror. Satan trembles at the sound of it; the black-winged dragon of the pit quails before it. Let him come to you suddenly, and do you but whisper that word, “God with us,” back he falls, confounded and confused.

“God with us” is the laborer’s strength; how could he preach the gospel, how could he bend his knees in prayer, how could the missionary go into foreign lands, how could the martyr stand at the stake, how could the confessor own his Master, how could men labor, if that one word were taken away?

“God with us” is the sufferer’s comfort, the balm of his woe, the alleviation of his misery, the sleep which God gives to his beloved, their rest after exertion and toil.

“God with us” is eternity’s sonnet, heaven’s hallelujah, the shout of the glorified, the song of the redeemed, the chorus of angels, the everlasting oratorio of the great orchestra of the sky.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (my favorite preacher of all time)

  1. Hello Sam and Ruthe;
    I continue to pray daily for both of you.
    My new book The Shelter, Finding Strength to keep Watch was released in Nov’09. It is the product of weeping over my nation for a year and then writing into the heart of my nation. I am calling us all to keep watch over beauty, health, legacy and liberty. To do so will require strength– God’s strength which is the focus of Psalm 31:19-20. There are seven chapters developing the surety and embrace of His Strength.
    God with us… is Life with God which is LIFE.
    Living in His presence through prayer and living in the Word is Life with God.
    God with us.
    What promise, provision and purpose!
    “Casual Christianity is over.”
    Life with God is eternal, encompassing and everlasting.
    It is found in the SHELTER of His Presence which he creates within those who seek Him and enjoy Him supremely.
    What an invitation!
    This book is a call to The Shelter in Him.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours.
    In Jesus’ Name we press on for God IS with us!

    Hallelujah!
    in All Things He Reigns.
