Believing the Promises of God - in His Word

Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed… Without weakening in his faith… Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised. ~ Romans 4 [selected 18-21]

Jehovah Shammah

Ezekiel 35:10, 14-15 [speaking to Edom]

10 " 'Because you have said, "These two nations and countries will be ours and we will take possession of them," even though I the LORD was there... ' ”

14 This is what the Sovereign LORD says: While the whole earth rejoices, I will make you desolate. 15 Because you rejoiced when the inheritance of the house of Israel became desolate, that is how I will treat you. You will be desolate, O Mount Seir, you and all of Edom. Then they will know that I am the LORD.' "

In His presence lay the special security of the chosen land - but God still calls us to hand-to-hand combat where our enemy is concerned. God will not give us - what we are not willing to fight for. When we are willing - HE promises to be right there with us. Then ALL will know that HE IS THE LORD!

Jehovah Shammah = The LORD is THERE!

The LORD is there to insure the victory - so that all will know that HE is GOD!

Choosing JOY,
