Jehovah Jireh

The Lord Will Provide

Romans 8:32

He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?


Jehovah means, “to become known” and infers a sense of unceasingly revealing new things. The name Jehovah Jireh originated on the mountain of Moriah where God asked Abraham to sacrifice his son of promise Isaac, then, at the last minute, substituted a ram in place of the child. Literally, in Hebrew, it means “The God who sees to it.”

Because we know God sees us and knows what our needs are we can trust that God will see to our needs. It is not the Lord did provide, but it is the Lord will provide. God’s provision comes entirely from His own resources. It is not dependent at all on what we already have. It is not just a multiplication of our resources. God always provides in His way, in His time, from His own source.



When have you doubted God’s provision because you couldn’t imagine how He would provide?

Repent of fearing God will not provide for your needs.

Pray and ask Jehovah Jireh for the faith to believe that He can and He will provide for your needs.

Listen and think about how God’s timing might differ from our timing. If God has not answered your needs yet, what might He be teaching you in the waiting period? Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal that to you.

Meditate on all the times God has provided for you in the past, thank Him for all His faithfulness.
