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.

Jehovah-El Elyon

Genesis 14:19 (KJV)
19 And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:

“El” expresses strength, might or power, or by extension, deity. “Elyon” means the supreme or the most high. When they are used together then it expresses that there is none higher and there is nothing that can be compared. It captures God as the highest authority in the affairs of mankind and in all nature. Who could be higher than the God who framed the worlds just by speaking them into existence by his word? He is the highest power, “And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent (all powerful or all ruling) reigneth.” Paul wrote to Timothy, “That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;” This reveals that Jesus Christ is the visible of an invisible God. Matthew recorded the words of Jesus, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.”  There is no other who should receive praise or glory. John recorded an event that will take place (Revelation 7:9-12)“After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; 10And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. 11And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, 12Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.” He is our blessing and deserves our honor. He is the Most High God. You are blessed just by knowing him. Receive your blessing of knowing who the Lord God is, and was, and is to come.

Jehovah-elohim

Deuteronomy 10:17 (KJV)
17 For the LORD your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward:

We serve an awesome God. He is before all things because he is eternal; the beginning and the end. He is the source of all things because he is the creator; the world was framed by the word of God. He upholds all things; he is the sustainer of all that he created. He is omniscience because he knows all the things; the past, the present, and the future. He is omnipresence because he fills the whole earth with his glory. The Psalmist David said there is nowhere he can go, and the Lord God is not there. God is a Spirit and he is everywhere. He is omnipotent; all powerful and there is nothing too hard for the Lord. With men things can be impossible but with God all things are possible. He is the one and only true God who robed himself in flesh. Paul wrote to Timothy, “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.” There is only one who fits these criteria:  The Lord Jesus Christ. In the end time he will sit upon a white horse and will be called Faithful and True, his eyes are as a flame of fire, his wears a vesture dipped in blood and he is also called The Word of God, on the vesture and on his thigh is written, King of kings, and Lord of Lords. We serve an awesome God. He is the giver of all blessings. Worship and glorify him today and receive your blessings.
