The God to whom we pray graciously gives us all things.
God is Jehovah-jireh. He is the Lord who will provide.
When you pray to Jehovah-jireh . . .
Thank Him for providing eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16).
Thank Him for the Holy Spirit. Your Father gives the Holy Spirit to those who ask (Luke 11:13).
Believe God’s promises. Jehovah had promised Abraham many descendants, so when Isaac asked, “Where is the lamb for the burnt offering?”
Abraham answered, “God himself will provide the lamb (Genesis 22:7-8).”
Obey His commands. Because Abraham was willing to sacrifice his son, God showed himself as Jehovah-jireh, the Lord who will provide (Genesis 22).
Don’t set your heart on things that won’t last. Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart (Job 1:21).
Always praise, no matter what. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised (Job 1:21).
Have faith. Do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on . . . for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things (from Matthew 6:25-33).
Claim this promise: My God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).
Don’t forget that God is the one who provides. When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the Lord for the good land He has given you . . . it is God who gives you the ability to produce wealth (Deuteronomy 8:10,18).
