Names of God: Jehova Jireh

In the Old Testament times, a name was not only identification, but an identity as well. Many times a special meaning was attached to the name. Throughout Scripture God reveals Himself to us through His names. When we study these names that He reveals to us in the Bible, we will better understand who God really is. The meanings behind God’s names reveals His central personality. If you get this …You will never question whether or not it is God’s will regarding:
  • Healing
  • Provision
  • Peace
  • Righteousness, etc.

God was first named Jehovah-Jireh (the Lord will provide) on Mount Moriah after Abraham had bound his son Isaac up as an offering and God intervened and provided a ram to take the place as a burnt offering. Jehova-Jireh, the Lord will provide.  When I understand that I can rest knowing He is my sufficiency.  He is the final cause of what you get, when you get it, and how you get it.

God is our source and my job is my resource. Most of us get those confused way to often.

When I understand that He is Jehova-Jireh and my resource runs out, than my Source will find me another resource.

He is Jehovah-Jireh.
