Day 159

JEHOVAH-SHAMMAH --
THE LORD IS THERE

"And the name of the city from that time on will be: 
the Lord is there."
Ezekiel 48:35

 

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, I will be your source of strength when your heart is failing. I will hold your hand when your steps falter. There will never be a time when you are truly alone, even though you may feel My presence is as distant as the stars in the heavens. I am Jehovah-shammah, the God who is always with you, always ready to help, the One who constantly cele-brates the joy of having you as My child.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Sometimes You lead me over rugged mountain trails and through dark valleys. Though Your face is hidden, and Your voice is silent, I sense Your protection all around me. I cannot escape Your presence, nor do I want to. You are Jehovah- shammah. You, Lord, are always there.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Wherever God leads, our hearts can follow with confidence.
