Jehovah-Jireh – “Jehovah” means the Lord; “Jireh” means will provide.
Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns. He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son. So Abraham called that place The Lord Will Provide. And to this day it is said, ‘On the mountain of the Lord it will be provided.’
God sees and knows our needs.
God has not spared even His own son from us.
God will provide all that we need in this world and in the next.
Additional verses to consider:
He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Romans 8:32
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
Reading assignment for next week: Exodus 17:8-16

Thanks for creating community here with us! The Big Red Sofa Series is about the things I see in life that make me go hmmmm. What God teaches me in scripture. The ordinary things that God can use to drive home spiritual lessons. The questions I sometimes ask. The stories we can all share. So pull up a cushion and join me on the sofa. I’d love to hear from you!
