Jehovah-Jireh …. LORD who Provides

Remember the story of Abraham and his son Isaac. It was God (Jehovah Jireh) that provided the sacrificial ram that was caught in the bushes. Because the Lord foresaw his need and provided the ram, Abraham built an altar for the “Lord Who Provides” -- Jehovah-Jireh [Gen. 22:1-18].  Abraham is one who loved God more than his beloved son Isaac, who was a man of worship and who immediately obeyed God.  Those who love, worship and obey the Lord are ones who can anticipate His provision.  "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. And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah-Jireh: as it is said to this day, in the mount of the Lord it shall be seen" (Genesis 22:13-14, KJV).

Are you having a difficult time decided something?  A decision has to be made about your finances, your job or a relationship.  Perhaps you are having trouble with a marriage or a relationship.  God (Jehovah-Jireh) will provide answers or a way through your difficult circumstance. Do you trust the Father? Do you trust His Almighty hand? Do you trust His heart through your most difficult times?  Will you give Him authority over your life?  We must ask ourselves if we fully trust HIM.  And if we don’t we ask that He will show us the areas of our heart needs changed and/or strengthened.  Praying to Jehovah-Jireh”-  Lord who Provides  will open the door for God to work His will and provision. 
 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Matthew 7:7-8 (NKJV)

Dear Heavenly Father, we thank You for Your favor on our lives.  We trust Your promises and will for our lives. We ask for Your strength and understanding of Your will.  We sometimes don’t see the good You have for us when are in turmoil or indecision but through Your eyes we ask to see what You see for us.  We trust in Your hand and heart.  Jehovah-Jireh, You provided for Abraham in his time of need, we believe that You will provide answers for our daunting questions or circumstance.  To bring revelation in our lives from this day forward. And through the Holy Spirit our paths will be revealed.  Father, we know that you are faithful and our needs will be met.  Glory to God ….Our Savior, Our Redeemer , In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit …Amen & Amen!
