“The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.” Psalm 46:7

This week we are going to look into the awesome truth that God is with us.

But what do we mean by with us? Look around the room, who is with you right now? Maybe your mum, dad, pets, brothers or sisters. Okay so lets changing it up a bit, can you be with someone who is not in the same room as you? In a different country, or maybe someone from the past, can you be with them? Tell you what can you be with me right now? Well yes kind of you can see me, I am talking to you, but as we know over all the lockdowns its not the same as being in the same room as someone. There are wall separating us form others, or distance or time. So to be with someone you need to be in the same room.

Okay so is God with us? In the very beginning of the Bible we see that God was with  people, he walked the garden with Adam, but as we know Sin, entered the world and he couldn’t be with us anymore (remember a few weeks back God is Holy!),  we were separated  from God by this wall of Sin. So How can God be with us now?

Lets take a look in our Bibles, in the  Old and New Testaments to see how.
