YHWH Shammah–Eze. 48:35
What will be tomorrow like? Someone said, life is roller coaster. There are times when it feels as if that is true wisdom, and I hate roller coasters – as soon as the ride starts . And, there are times in our life, where we have no idea what is happening around us. We feel as if we are not in control of anything, as if we are just going with the motion. Okay, whatever has to happen, let it happen – we give up. Yes, it is hard at times to be swimming against the tide all the time. At such times, when we feel as if it is over, when our heart cries out for some respite, when we want to throw in the towel, when all the strength you could muster is not enough – remember this Name:
YHWH Shammah – “The LORD is there.”
No matter where we are today in our life, whatever be the image we have about our life, be it a roller coaster or a quagmire, there is one constant assurance we have: YHWH Shammah – the LORD is there with us. Yes, dear friend, He is here right with us, right at this moment. We may not feel His comforting presence, we may not hear His assuring voice, we may not experience the magical feeling of His hand holding us and guiding us through the darkness that is engulfing us – but, the LORD is there. YHWH Shammah.
We may have to pass through the deep waters of life, or a scorching fire – does not matter. There is nothing on this earth, or in heaven above or in hell below, there is no power, absolutely nothing, that can separate us from the love of God. And, in His eternal love, He has promised, “I will never leave you, nor forsake you.” – Jos.1:5 (NIV). People may come and go in our life, situations may change, those who we love may not understand us and may stay away from us when we really, really need them. At the darkest of these hours, there is a Voice out there, whispering in our ears, “I AM YHWH Shammah. I will never leave you, nor forsake you.”
When we are down, when we have lost all hopes, when everyone around is feeling bad for our failures, it is difficult for us to keep up our hopes. But fear not, someone is coming here, to take you aside from the mourners and whisper unto you those magical words:
|Hebrews 12:2“fixing our eyes on Jesus, the Pioneer and Perfecter of faith. For the joy set before Him He endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
