Jehovah Jireh

These words have been going through my head all month.  Jehovah-Jireh was a location in the land of Moriah named by Abraham.  God had told Abraham to take his son Isaac to that place as a burnt offering.  I recommend you read about it in Genesis 22.  God provided a ram in the thicket to take the place of Isaac.  Abraham named the mountain Jehovah-Jireh, the Lord will provide.

Now, Jehovah-Jira, has been running through my mind the past few weeks.  The Lord will provide, the Lord will provide, the Lord will provide.  We are a needy people!  Most of the time when we hear the phrase the Lord will provide we instantly think of money.  While that is one area where people need help it is not the only and most of the time not truly the most important.  Peace, comfort, guidance I could go on and on…the Lord will provide!

I am currently going through a study of the names of God in the Bible.  It has been a blessing and I haven’t gotten far.  I pray today that these words, Jehovah Jireh, will be placed in your heart and mind as well.  When you come into a situation and you need help, I pray those words come to your mind.  Say them out loud!
