Jehovah Jireh, my Supplier

Abraham named the place Yahweh-Yireh (which means “the Lord will provide”). To this day, people still use that name as a proverb: “On the mountain of the Lord it will be provided.” Genesis 22:14 (New Living Translation)

The verse above is one of my favorites because it is where we first see God called a name other than the norm. He is given this alternate name because of the act performed or blessing bestowed upon His child. Jevovah Jireh is a name I call on and thank daily because without this characteristic of Him, where would we be? I know for me, I can’t really answer. Though I am sure, the result wouldn’t be fantastic or even better than I am now. I am confident about this much because I know where He found me!

I am certain you have heard the story from where this verse comes. More
