Emmanuel meaning "God is always with us" (עִמָּנוּאֵל in Hebrew), it is comforting in these challenging times to be very, very conscious of His omnipresent and omniscient presence.
Christ Yeshua wants us to trust and have faith in Him with every fiber of our being!
What He can accomplish in and through us is proportional to how much WE TRUST & DEPEND on Him.
1 example of this is the degree that we trust Him in a major crisis or critical decision.
Some folks fail miserably in these situations while others excel in tough times.
Another more important aspect is the CONSTANCY of our trust in Christ Yeshua.
People who rely on Him in the midst of adversity usually forget about Emmanuel when their lives are flowing smoothly.
Difficult times can jolt us into being aware of our desperate need for Him, whereas smooth sailing can lull us into the stupor and stupidity of self sufficiency.
Christ Yeshua cares as much of our tiny trust steps through our daily life as much as about our dramatic leaps of faith.
We may entropically think that no 1 notices, but He who is always with us and besides us sees EVERYTHING and rejoices!
Constantly trusting in Emmanuel is vital to flourishing in this ever changing roller coaster planet of ours.
