We have Heard that God is with You

December 21st, 2008 · No Comments

Zechariah 8:23 (Revised Standard Version)

Thus says the LORD of hosts: In those days ten men from the nations of every tongue shall take hold of the robe of a Jew, saying, `Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.'”

This is a prophetic verse from the Old Testament. It speaks of God’s chosen people – the Jews. It speaks of a time when all the nations will see that God’s people are different. They are truly God’s people.

I believe I can move this to today’s language and the Christians. Will people look at me and say, “Let us go with you, for we have noticed that God is with you.”

That is a challenge to me. Do people see God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit with me? Is there anything different about my life that would attract people?

God, help me to truly allow you to be in my life every day and in every way. Guide me so that people will want to be with me because they see that You are with me.
