Genesis 22:13(NIV) Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram[a] caught by its horns. He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son. V14 So Abraham called that place The Lord Will Provide. And to this day it is said, “On the mountain of the Lord it will be provided.”
Jehovah Jireh means “the Lord will provide” or, literally, “the Lord will see to it.” By the time Abraham used this name for God he had learned from personal experience the truth of its claims. I wonder are you learning during this season in your life the truth of the Lord’s provision for you? I know I am and it’s Amazing sight to behold!!!!
When asked by God to sacrifice his son Isaac, Abraham trusted that somehow God would still keep His promise to make of Isaac a great nation. He obeyed God by taking Isaac to the altar, but trusted—against reason and sight and feeling, that somehow God would provide Himself a lamb (22:8). His faith was rewarded and validated when God replaced Isaac with a ram for the sacrifice.
What about you? Has God given you any sure promises? (If you can’t think of any, try Romans 8:28-32 or Philippians 4:19). Have you trusted God to make good on His word, even when trusting meant going against reason and sight and feeling? Numbers 23:19 reminds us that “God is not a man, that he should lie, hath he said, and shall he not do it? Or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?”
The fact is, God not only sees all, He sees to it all; He will provide all your needs, dedicated believer, according to His riches by Christ Jesus. Trust today, no matter what gaping needs may confront you, which the Lord will provide; He will see to it all. Have a marvelous weekend!
