I don’t know what you are facing today, but know this, JEHOVAH SHAMMAH – the Lord IS There.
John 17:6a – I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world:
Oh how I rejoice in our Second Miler today. Think about this….if you make your bed in hell, if you are on the earth, if you are heaven, if you are in jail, if you are in court, if you are in a doctor’s office, if you are in the hospital, if you are in surgery, if you are in trouble, if you are blessed, if you are rich, if you are poor, if you sit in the light, if you sit in the dark, if you laugh, if you cry, if you are rested, if you are exhausted, if you are coming in, if you are going out, if you are in the city, if you are in the field, if you are up, if you are down, if you are happy, if you are sad….REGARDLESS of where you are and when you are there, JEHOVAH SHAMMAH – the LORD IS THERE!
Oh how thankful we should be for this element of our Lord’s manifested Name. I have had the great privilege to travel to many places on our planet to which most people in our world will never travel, aside from the modern technology of media. I have enjoyed first-hand the fellowship of people of many cultures, nations, and languages. I have endured first-hand the travel, medical, and nutritional challenges that so many people face daily, conditions that most Americans would consider appalling, but which are endured daily by so many. And yet, no matter where I have traveled, regardless of the various extremes in conditions I may have witnessed, without regard to ethnic, social, or financial status, I can attest to you boldly, JEHOVAH SHAMMAH – the LORD IS THERE.
While we should certainly rejoice over the Lord’s manifested Names, RAPHA, JIREH, SHALOM, and ROHI, we should NEVER fail to recognize a love so great that it has completely invaded EVERY arena of our lives. TSIDKENU is a possibility maker, NISSI is a fixed identifier, and SHAMMAH is a great comfort to every moment of life. For without SHAMMAH, there is the possibility that we could encounter times, difficulties, situations, and events in life where we could find ourselves alone. Ah, but with SHAMMAH, that cannot be the case. Take heart, my believer friend. Regardless of WHAT you face, WHEN you face it, WHERE you face it, or WHY you face it, JEHOVAH SHAMMAH – THE LORD IS THERE!
