Message from Rabbi Cahn’s Sapphires
While Messiah was in the boat with His disciples, there came a violent storm, waves breaking over the boat threatening to drown them. Messiah was sleeping. He didn’t really have to do anything, because it was enough that He was there. Messiah has a special name in Hebrew prophecy. In Hebrew, it’s a sentence: ‘Im’ with a long e meaning ‘with’, ‘Anu’, which means ‘us’, and ‘El’, which means ‘God’- ‘Immanuel’, or ‘God with us’. Messiah’s presence isn’t just the Name, but Immanuel the sentence. Messiah was ‘God is with us’ on the boat that day, because He’s Immanuel. We all know what it’s like to have storms in our lives, times when it seems like everything is out of control, overwhelming circumstances, and it seems that your boat is sinking. You’ll have those storms, but when they come, remember Who’s with you in your lifeboat. If you are Messiah’s, then Immanuel is in the boat with you. The wind and waves won’t prevail against you, and your boat won’t sink because you’re not alone. In the storm is Immanuel; God is with you in the storm.
Scripture: Joshua 1:9
TODAY'S MISSION - Today, throughout the day, meditate on this Hebrew sentence, IM-ANU-EL – GOD IS WITH ME
