The Names of God
DAY 3: JEHOVAH JIREH – THE LORD WILL PROVIDE
You’re uncertain of how you’re going to pay your bills this month. The status of your relationship is up in the air. You’ve heard that job cuts are coming at work, and your position with the company is uncertain. When the basics of life are at stake—health, finances, shelter, food, family, employment—it’s natural to feel terrified, as if you have nowhere to turn. That’s when you need to call on Jehovah Jireh. This blessed name of God means “the Lord will provide,” and it’s a name filled with power and might.
When we feel fearful about our future, it’s imperative that we turn to God and call on His name. Every good and perfect gift comes from Him, and there’s no limit to the gifts and blessings He provides. Putting our faith in Him can sometimes be the only way to calm our fears and maintain a positive mindset.
It can be a hard lesson to learn, but trials here on earth strengthen our spiritual muscles and draw us closer to God. Through our struggles, He shows us firsthand how He provides air for our lungs to breathe and light for our eyes to see. He gives us exactly what we need to produce the greatest growth in us and the most far-reaching impact for His kingdom. And He always gives it in a spirit of love.
