August 2017 – Jehovah Jireh, The Great Provider
And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
When you can’t see a resolution in view to your problems, my God shall supply. When men ignore you, and cannot meet your needs, my God shall supply.
When all doors are shot and no opened door in view, my God shall supply. When you are alone and unknown in a strange land, my God shall supply all your needs according to His abundant resources in the heavenly places.
David said in Psalm 23:1, “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.” When others do not come to your aid, The Lord Jesus shall. When there is no way or solution to resolve your problems, He shall provide the solution to your problems. He brought deliverance for the three Hebrew men in the fiery furnace (Daniel 3), for Daniel in the lion’s den (Daniel 6), for David from Goliath’s might (1 Samuel 17), and for Gideon when he battled the Midianites against overwhelming odds (Judges 7). The Lord provided a ram for Abraham when he wanted to offer up Isaac in Genesis 22. Abraham called this place of testing and provision, Jehovah-Jireh, which means “the Lord sees.” God’s provision of the ram demonstrated the truth that God provides the right things that we exactly need because He sees and knows what our needs are. God also provides for us in the right places. God provided the ram on top of the mountain where Abraham needed it. The Lord Jesus fed 5,000 men with five barley loaves of bread and 2 small fish on the mountain. When the disciples gathered the fragments that remained, they filled twelve baskets.
In Christ Jesus, we have abundant supply for our Spiritual, Physical, Marital, Emotional, Academic, Career, and other needs. Jesus said “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you “Matthew 6:33. Jehovah Jireh is not happy to see His children in need and that is why He is knocking at the door of your heart (Revelation 3:20). If you can allow Him in, He will step into your needs and you shall become a blessing. Welcome to the month of August 2017, the month of Jehovah Jireh, THE GREAT PROVIDER.”
Yours in Him,
