Genesis 22:14 (KJV) Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the Lord it shall be seen.
Jehovahjireh 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. But just as important have you or are you learning the truth of God providing or the “Lord seeing to it” that which concerns your life?
When asked by God to sacrifice his son Isaac, Abraham trusted that somehow God would still keep His promise to make his son 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 (Genesis 22:8). His faith was rewarded and validated when God replaced Isaac with a ram for the sacrifice. God is now working on your situation whether you know or not!
What about you? Has God given you any sure promises? (If you can’t think of any, try reading (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 it, and shall the Lord not do it? or hath the Lord spoken, and shall the Lord not make it good?” I just wanted to remind someone facing a difficult situation this Monday morning “God will provide”!
Point to ponder- The fact is, God not only sees all, the Lord sees to it all—God will provide all your needs, dear believerof God according to His riches by Christ Jesus. Trust today, no matter what gaping needs may confront you, that the Lord will provide; God will see to it all.
