THE NAMES OF GOD
And Abraham called the name of the place, The Lord Will Provide; as it is said to this day, in the mount of the Lord it shall be provided. Genesis 22:14
God called Abraham to test him by asking him to sacrifice his only son and he obeyed and as he laid Isaac on the altar and lifted the knife in the air to kill his son, God spoke. God always provides for us but sometimes he tests us to see if we will really trust him.
Jehovah Jireh, The Lord Will Provide only occurs once in scripture but there are hundreds of promises throughout the word of His divine provision for His saints. In the New Testament He says he will provide all of our needs according to His riches in glory and His riches are too great to be counted.
Abraham's obedience brought about great blessing upon him as he passed the test of faith, believing even to the point of sacrificing his son to the Most High. God had a ram caught for him to complete the sacrifice, proving His faithfulness to us that He is in fact, Jehovah Jireh!
"By Myself I have sworn, says the Lord, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son, blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies." Genesis 22:16,17
