“God’s name is JEHOVAH-JIREH, the Lord will provide."
Genesis 22:14

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.

  1. So very true, Sandy. I have seen Him provide over and over in my own life as well.

  2. He is indeed faithful to provide and not just financially, but for every need that we have! What a wonderful God.

    1. You are so right, thankfully! Amazing what He does!

  3. I love this story. It is amazing how God does provide when we are faithful to Him.

  4. It really is amazing, isn't it! "Cast all your cares on HIm for He cares for you!" He really wants us to depend on HIm for everything. It's so simple but boy can I make it hard sometimes!
