The Name: Jehovah Jireh

· Jehovah is the personal, intimate name of God

· Jireh has 2 ideas tied to it: The Lord will see and the Lord provides

· Jehovah Jireh will see to it


The Story: Abraham puts Isaac on the altar – Genesis 22

· Isaac was the son of promise, born to Abraham at the age of 100

· God puts Abraham to a test

· Abraham promptly and faithfully obeys

· Abraham’s obedience is rooted in his faith of God (Hebrews 11:19)

· God intervenes at the last moment

· God provides the substitute sacrifice – a ram in the thicket


The Takeaway: God will provide what we truly need

· We are to love Jehovah more than anything else (Deuteronomy 6:5, Matthew 16:24, Romans 12:1)

· We are called to follow Jesus with radical obedience to His Word

· When we follow Jesus in radical obedience we can trust that He will provide

· God will always provide what we need, but that is not necessarily what we want

· Jesus is the greatest provision of Jehovah Jireh – the substitute for us
