1 Reason God says “I Am With You”

The phrase said by God “I am with you” shows up in the Bible a lot, and depending on the version you look up, the words:  I, am, with and you show up 496 times. 

To understand why God says “I am with you” in the Bible, you must understand the person to whom He is speaking.   He is speaking to a person who belongs to Him.  He is telling them that if they seek Him and obey Him, He will fight their battles and win, assuring victory for that person or for that believer…AKA… Christian.  To  👉 become a believer in Jesus  is critical when calling on the promises of God.

It’s a promise!  I am with you is a promise….and like all of the promises in scripture, they are only for the believer who believes He is Lord, and follow Him.

There are a multitude of stories in the Bible that include God telling His people that He is with them, and I know without a doubt that when I am reading those stories, God is also speaking to me.

I remember going through a very intense spiritual battle in my life, when the Lord told me He was with me.  (I shared about it in a previous post Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus ) So, not understanding what He meant, I went directly to the scriptures and asked Him to tell me what He meant by telling me this.

As I studied the Word, God showed me how to study the Bible to better understand His heart and character.  During my search, I found a lot of verses that included this meaningful phrase using cross referencing….(a way to study the Bible following references included at the bottom of each page of the Bible.)

It’s a promise!  I am with you is a promise….and like all of the promises in scripture, they are only for the believer who believes He is Lord, and follow Him.

If you are facing a seemingly impossible situation, remember that God loves you and He is with you!  He wants you to dig deep into the Bible, His Word.  As you do this, the heart of the father will be revealed to you, and you’ll get amazing, mind blowing, life transforming answers…I promise!

Before we say bye for now,  I’ve included some scriptures that include the phrase “I am with you”  from 👉 Blue Letter Bible.  (I can’t express enough how amazing this tool was for me when I really needed results…and they have an 👉app!)
