Psalm 46:11 “The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.”

Jehovah Shammah – One of many names of God that simply means “God is There.”  But the far reaching effects and depth of this name can hardly be described.  I researched it recently after an intense time of prayer and fasting.  I found myself crying out in the Spirit, Shammah…Shammah!  I didn’t know what it meant then.  He was truly there with me during a very challenging time; when my flesh was dying and it wasn’t happy!

Calling Jehovah by His Hebrew names is another way of praising and giving glory to our Creator.  Matthew Henry’s Commentary says:  “…it is true of every good Christian; he dwells in God and God in him.  Whatever soul has in it a living principle of grace, it may be truly said, The Lord is There.”
