"Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns. He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son. So Abraham called that place The LORD WILL PROVIDE."
Sometimes, we may feel that we simply can't live up to the standards God sets before us. And, it's true. We can't. That's why God has provided righteousness to us through His Son. God gives us salvation. God gives us forgiveness. God gives us empowerment throught the Holy Spirit. God gives us a new life in Christ. God gives us overs. God provides for all that He requires. When God commanded Abraham to sacrifice his son as a test of his obedience and then provided a ram in the place of Isaac, Abraham named the place, "The LORD Will Provide." The Hebrew words, "Jehovah Yireh," means "the LORD will see to it." God' "seeing to" the provision to meet His demand foreshadowed God sacrificing Jesus to "see to it" that our sin debt was paid. The LORD PROVIDING His only SON to pay for our sin is the ultimate act of His love. Are you in need of help in some area of your life today? Look to the LORD WHO PROVIDES.
Heavenly Father, I praise You, Jehovah Yireh, LORD WHO PROVIDES. Thank You for providing Your Son to pay my sin debt. Thank You for all the ways in which You provide. I worship You!
Celebrate Jehovah Yireh and our Risen Savior with us HERE.
