The name of God we are focusing on is Jehovah Shammah - The LORD is There.
The closing verse of Ezekiel says, "And the name of the city from that time on shall be, The Lord Is There." This is the name given to the New Jerusalem. We know God promises to never leave us (Hebrews 13:5) but this name reveals a new level of God's presence for our future.
Our HOPE today is in the foundation of Jehovah. Our HOPE for the future is the promise of a new heaven and a new earth as found in Revelation 21. This hope anchors our soul (Hebrews 6) and motivates us to live pure and holy lives here on earth.
Let's carry this hope of a future kingdom with us each day. A word I use often is "Maranatha", come quickly Lord. Let's live with the future in mind. And share our hope with as many as we can along the journey.
Jehovah Shammah, we thank You for the promise of a future kindgom where You are the head. On this earth we have plenty of trials and tribulations, but give us renewed hope in the promise of a future with You. Help that anchor our souls when we are tossed about. Maranatha, Amen
