“God’s name is JEHOVAH-JIREH, the Lord will provide."
There are many scriptures that speak of God's loving provision. For instance Philippians 4:19 says, “my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
Unfortunately, in our society self-dependence is lauded, and anything not logical is considered false. But in God’s kingdom, His Truth supersedes fact.
Some years ago my husband and I were struggling financially, but the Lord enabled me to fearlessly tithe, and give to ministries or others in need as He prompted me. My checkbook said I didn’t have enough money to pay the bills but miraculously I was always able to do so. I don’t know how God did it, but I believed He would provide and He did.
“JEHOVAH-JIREH”, Provider, is not just who He is but what He does. He is faithful to live up to His name.
