And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is saidto this day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen. Genesis 22:14
America and the World continue to have economic issues, there is currently about 30 million people still unemployed in America, while Forbes estimates the numbers are actually higher. Even the American that are working are struggling, with governments only solution to everything is to increase taxes.
So during these stressful times, what hope is there? When you understand our God, you understand he is in complete control. Jehovah Jireh means “ The Lord will provide” You need to understand Man is not you provider, God is your provider. You may have been fired or layed off by Man but God has something greater in store for you.
(James 1:17)” Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”
Every good thing comes from God not Man. Your life, health, family, even your money all come from God not man. Therefore when times get tough, who do you turn to? Do you rely on yourself or someone else to provide for your family? Rely on God, he will provide for you and your family.
God never promised there wouldn’t be hard times, but don’t mistake these hardships from God. However when times do get tough, don’t blame it on God. As the scriptures said all Good things come from God, not bad.Make no mistake we are all under attack from Satan, but God will provide for you, just trust him.
(Isaiah 61:7) “For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.”
God promises when we do receive hardship, he will repay us in double if we stay in faith. Six times throughout the Bible God has demonstrated this. Remember God is our provider be he also keeps his promises.
Remember what you reap is what you sow, if you continue to work hard and most importantly stay faithful to God, he will repay you double. Do everything to the Glory of God and not man.
(Matthew 6:26) “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
Jesus taught us this lesson about the birds, they don’t work for there food, God just provides it to them because he cares for them, and he cares for you even more. Therefor don’t worry whether you will get by in life, God will provide for you!
So next time your in a drought or during a down season, remember God is your provider not man. He provides for the birds and he will provide for you also in Jesus name Amen
