The Names Of God- Jehovah Shammah

Each month throughout 2020 I'm posting a little rhyming couplet that looks at one or two of the names of God and their meanings. My hope is that they can be an easy way to help memorise just some of the many different names of God! The name for the month of August is Jehovah Shammah.

Poetry Prayer For August

There are so many unsettling things going on in this world that it's easy to get bogged down with it all. My poetry prayer for August is that we would heed the words of Philippians 4:8 and take time to dwell on the beautiful and uplifting things of Jesus!

Be Not Deceived

I happened to see a picture on Facebook one day which showed me a man wearing a t-shirt that had the slogan,

“If Jesus comes back, kill Him again.”

My initial feelings were anger and hurt as I looked at such a disrespectful statement but as I studied the picture more, I slowly began to feel those emotions melt away. They were soon replaced with sorrow and heartache for this very lost soul.

It became apparent to me that I was clearly looking at a picture of a person who thinks they can curse God and mock Him with no repercussions. This kind of mindset is often paired with the conclusion that because there’s no instant bolt of lightning from the sky, God either doesn’t exist or He isn’t powerful enough to do anything. This reasoning however, is gravely wrong on both parts because as Galatians 6:7-8 says,

“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.  For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.”
