​​God’s presence can never be in question.  As God he is in every place and time at once.  His omnipresence defies imagination. But, the name Jehovah Shammah does not really about God’s Omni-presence 

Jehovah Shammah speaks to God never leaving or forsaking his own.  It is the law in most states, that if one adopts a child, that child cannot later be disowned.  The act of choosing to legally become the parent; binds the parent from the on.  Such also is the case, with our relationship with our Heavenly father.  He remains with us through thick and thin.  It is not that he fails to allow us to experience the consequences of our choices, but, it does give confidence that he remains with us no matter what.
 
God is there–means that at the end of the day, whether we are there for our Lord or not– he is there for us.  The verse in Ezekiel speaks to the return from captivity for the Israelites.  Ezekiel is describing the rebuilding of Jerusalem. And when the city was completed, he says the name of the city is simply “God is There”.  We have to remember that God loves us and wants nothing more than to e in fellowship with him.  Nothing can separate us from that love and desire he has to be here with us.
 
We can rest in peace knowing no matter what, when or where–God will be with us. He is there!!!
 
God Bless You

 

Ezekiel 48 

30 “These will be the exits of the city: Beginning on the north side, which is 4,500 cubits long, 31 the gates of the city will be named after the tribes of Israel. The three gates on the north side will be the gate of Reuben, the gate of Judah and the gate of Levi.

32 “On the east side, which is 4,500 cubits long, will be three gates: the gate of Joseph, the gate of Benjamin and the gate of Dan.

33 “On the south side, which measures 4,500 cubits, will be three gates: the gate of Simeon, the gate of Issachar and the gate of Zebulun.

34 “On the west side, which is 4,500 cubits long, will be three gates: the gate of Gad, the gate of Asher and the gate of Naphtali.

35 “The distance all around will be 18,000 cubits.[f]

“And the name of the city from that time on will be:

the Lord is there.”

Romans 8

 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written:

“For your sake we face death all day long;
    we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”[j]

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[k] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
