12.Jehovah Shammah (Ezekiel 48:35)
Jehovah Shammah means God is present there. Wherever we are united in one spirit and gathered in His name, it is His promise that He will be present there. When we go through deep troubles He is our refuge and very present help. (Psalms 46: 1) When we walk through the valley of death, He is with us and and so we don’t have any need to fear. (Psalm 23: 4) When He ascended to heaven He gave the promise that He Is with us even unto the end of the world. (Mathew 28: 20) He in a real friend who always stands by us. Wherever we are He is with us. When we pass through waters, rivers and fire, He is there with us .(Isaiah 43:1-3) When He came into the world His name was Immanuel meaning “God with Us”.
When Daniel was thrown to lions, Jehovah Shammah was there with him and closed the mouth of lions. When Sadrak, Meshek and Abed Nego were thrown in fiery furnace, Jehovah Shammah also came into the furnace and they did not know any problem. He was with Joseph in all his trials and brought him out triumphantly. So when you are thrown into unexpected confusing situations and unjustifiable situations Jehovah Shammah is there just like He was with Joseph. When disciples on the way to Emmaus were very confused and troubled He was there to open their eyes of understanding. (Luke 24:25-31) When disciples returned to fishing in their backslidden stage Jehovah Shammah was there waiting for their return with bread and fish to nourish them. (John 21) Similarly in all our situations of life we must be able to sense the presence of Jehovah Shammah.
