Have you ever felt abandoned, Forgotten, insignificant? Felt as though you neither matter nor count?
You need to encounter Yahweh Shammah (The Lord is There)
“The distance around the entire city will be 6 miles. And from that day the name of the city will be ‘The Lord Is There.’” Ezekiel 48:35
While Yahweh Shammah occurs only once in the Bible in Ezekiel 48:35 it reminds us God has not neither forgotten us nor abandoned his people. Even in your toughest time, darkest hour, He is an ever present help in times of trouble. It’s a reminder he has not abandoned us in our darkest hour either. It reminds us that God reveals Himself to us unceasingly. He is always Present.
Are you in a battle, and the chances of winning appear slim and far in between, encounter Jehovah Nissi Yahweh Nissi (The Lord My Banner)
“Moses built an altar there and named it Yahweh-Nissi (which means “the Lord is my banner”). He said, “They have raised their fist against the Lord’s throne, so now the Lord will be at war with Amalek generation after generation.” Exodus 17:15-16.
It was their first battle after being freed from Egypt, In the battle over Amalekites, only when Moses held his staff up high was there victory.. When Moses’ arms grew heavy, his brother and sister helped him keep the staff in the air. After their enemies were defeated, Moses built an altar and called it “God our Banner.”
It was a reminder of God’s leadership and protection. The saying, “The Lord is my banner” is a way of the Israelites and modern-day Christians identifying themselves as followers of the Lord God. The banner also functions as a rallying point. It reminds us we are rescued by him and identified in him.
