Jehovah-Jireh

Genesis 22:7-8 (KJV)
7 And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?
8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.

Genesis 22:14 (KJV)
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.

“Jireh” has the meaning of “to see” or “to provide”. The Lord is our provider because he sees everything that we need both naturally and spiritually. He is ever watchful. One of the greatest passages that reveals the Lord’s watchful care is found in Matthew 6: 25-34. It explains his care for the fowls of the air and the lily of the fields. How much more he cares for us. We should never worry about what we will eat or drink or the clothes upon our backs. He will supply everything. Paul wrote to the Philippians, “Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” He wrote to the Ephesians, “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,” Put your trust in an all-seeing God. He will provide what you need through the blessings that flow from heaven every day. Receive your blessings and you will never lack for anything.
