The Names of God: Jehovah-Jireh

God is Jehovah-Jireh, our provider! Abraham’s faith was so strong, he took his son and was willing to give him to God as a sacrifice. He told his son that God would provide Himself a lamb for a burnt offering (verse 8). Abraham went all the way to stretching his hand up with the knife before the Angel of the Lord stopped him. He lifted his eyes and there the Lord provided a ram caught in the thicket for the sacrifice.

God is an on-time God. He doesn’t tend to do things early, He is never late, and He is always on-time. That may make some of us squirm as we wait for a word or something we so desperately need, but when God is on it there is no need to worry. He knows what we need before we do. He knows what we want as well, but He sees beyond what we can and knows if that want will help or hurt our future. We can trust if there is something we “think” is delayed, God is waiting for His perfect timing. Jehovah-Jireh is “The Lord Will Provide” and we can trust Him to provide our every need. 🦅 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind [him] a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son. 14 And 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.” ~ Genesis 22:13-14
