NAMES OF GOD

JEHOVAH SHAMMAH – THE LORD IS THERE
KNOWING THE NAMES OF GOD IS AN INCREDIBLE RESCUE IN TIMES OF DISTRESS.  GROWING UP MY FATHER
WAS A GOOD MAN THAT TRIED VERY HARD TO LOVE HIS DAUGHTERS. YET, ANGER WAS ALWAYS HIS GO TO RESPONSE WHEN LIFE WAS DIFICULT.  AS A LITTLE GIRL,  I GREW TO NOT TRUST MY FATHER BECAUSE
I COULD NOT TRUST HIS EMOTIIONS.
OFTEN AFTER A SEASON OF ANGER, MY FATHER WOULD STOP SPEAKING TO US.  HE WOULD BE SILENT
FOR WEEKS NEVER ANSWERING OUR QUESTIONS 0R ENGAGING AT MEALTIMES.
THE END RESULT OF MY CHILDHOOD WAS A BELIEF THAT I WAS NOT WORTH THE EFFORT OF KNOWING. I FELT ABANDONED.
AFTER MANY YEARS I HAVE GROWN TO LOVE , FORGIVE AND EVEN UNDERSTAND MY FATHER’S WOUNDED HEART.
SO WHEN I FOUND THIS NAME FOR GOD, MY HEART WANTED TO SING!!!!
JEHOVAH SHAMMAH-THE LORD IS THERE
THIS NAME OF GOD MEANT I HAD A FATHER WHO WAS PRESENT AND WOULD NEVER ABANDON ME.  AS I RECIEVED
THE LOVE OF JESUS ,AS MY SAVIOR, I FOUND I COULD EXPERIENCE THE CONSTANT PRESENCE OF GOD. SUCH
A POWERFUL BLESSING TO MY WOUNDED HEART.
JEHOVAH SHAMMAH IS A NAMES FOR GOD THAT IS SYMBOLIC OF JERUSALEM USED IN EZEKIEL48:35.
“AND FROM THAT DAY ON THE NAME OF THAT CITY WILL BE ADONDAI SHAMMAH.”  CJB
GOD’S PEOPLE HAD FALLEN INTO IDOLATRY AND DISOBEDIENCE, YET GOD NEVER FULLY ABANDONED HIS
CHILDREN.  HIS MERCY AND LOVE WERE ALWAYS CALLING THEM BACK TO HIM.  THROUGH THE PROPHET EZEKIEL GOD PROMISED RESTORATION AND THE RETURN OF HIS PRESENCE TO JERUSALEM.
ALTHOUGH THE HEBREW MEANING OF THE WORD SHAMMAH IS “APPALLING DESOLATIONS”, CHARLES SPURGEON WROTE IN 1891 THAT JEHOVAH SHAMMAH IS NOT MERELY TO BE UNDERSTOOD AS A NAME
BUT AS A DESCRIPTION OF FUTURE REALITY.  THE HIGHEST BLESSING EZEKIEL COULD BESTOW ON
THE CITY OF GOD–THE LORD IS THERE.
FOR US TODAY,  LIVING IN TIMES THAT SEEM GOD HAS ABOANDONED US, WE CAN DECLARE THE TRUTH
OF HIS NAME—
THE LORD IS THERE!!!!!!!!
HE IS THERE IN EVERY TEST, EVERY LOSS , EVERY HEARTACHE, EVERY DIAGNOSIS, AND EVERY ATTACK OF THE ENEMY.
GOD IS FULLY PRESENT, FULLY AWARE, AND FULL ENGAGED.
SO BELOVED, PICK U[ YOUR SHEILD OF FAITH AND TRUST IN OUR GOD THAT IS THERE FOR US–
NOW AND FOREVER!!!
