When most of us think of God’s provision, we think of God providing a new sound system, or something of a good deal. But there is so much more to God’s provision. When God introduces Himself as Jehovah Jireh (“the Lord will provide”), it isn’t about providing money or tangible assets. It’s about the most important thing in life - life itself.
God commanded Abraham to sacrifice his son, Isaac, on Mount Moriah. But Isaac was supposed to be the miracle from God to Abraham and Sarah (when they were old and infertile), the son who God promised to make into a great nation. But even then, Abraham acted in faith, believing that God would still provide a miracle, and He did - a ram was provided just when Abraham was about to sacrifice Isaac. So Abraham called the place ‘The Lord Will Provide’. God the provider, Jehovah Jireh, gave life and stayed faithful to His promise just as Abraham had faith in God’s provision.
While God provides for our daily (physical) needs (Matthew 6), God also provides us with eternal life (John 3:16). The God who cares about even the smallest of details sent His son to die for us, to atone for our sins (Romans 3:25) that we may abundant life (John 10:10). Jesus was the final sacrifice, our perfect and flawless lamb.
Today when you call upon Jehovah Jireh, you can be sure that The Lord WILL Provide. More than just material items, He freely gave up His only son for you. Jesus is His provision to you, that you may have life, and have it more abundantly!
