Day3: Jehovah Jireh – The Lord Will Provide
Reading Plan for Today:
Ge22:13-14, Dt2:7, 1Ki17:6, 16, 1Ki19:6, 2Ki4:6, Mt14:20, Ps57:1, Isa25:4, Dt33:27, Isa46:4
One of the names of God is Jehovah Jireh, which means the Lord will provide. This name was introduced first in Ge22:13-14 when Abraham’s faith was tested by having to offer his only son Isaac as a burnt offering to God. In scripture there are numerous examples of our Heavenly Father’s provision:
For the Israelites in the wilderness – Read Dt.2:7
For Elijah in time of famine and in the wilderness – Read 1Ki17:6, 16; 1Ki19:6
For the prophet’s widow – Read 2Ki 4:1-6
For the multitude that followed Jesus – Read Mt14:20
In time of trouble – Read Ps57:1
Refuge in time of distress –Read Isa25:4
Supporting the weak - Read Dt33:27, Isa46:4
Jehovah Jireh is not limited by your current circumstances, past, possessions or lack of such. When He fills your “empty cup” it will be to the point of overflowing satisfaction. I don’t know what brings you to the throne of our Jehovah Jireh today but I hope you will exercise your faith and ask boldly.
Lord, you are a refuge and strength for the oppressed, a stronghold in time of trouble. You sent your son Jesus to earth to live as a man; you know what it means to be completely human. You understand my fears and worries. Father God, forgive me when I am weak and help me trust you. I come before you this day with the request of provision for ……………….. The scripture is full of encouraging stories of how you have provided plenty in times of famine, how you’ve kept the weak safe, fed the hungry and comforted your sheep in distress. In faith as your child saved by grace I present my request and thank you for the way in which you are going to provide. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
