Jehovah Jirah

tetragrammatonOf all God’s names and characteristics Jehovah Jirah speaks most loudly to me.  There are actually several interlacing characteristics to this Hebrew term.

First, He is the One who sees.  He sees every second of my life and knows what is needed.  He puts everything in place so that my life will play out His purpose.  Galations 4:4 gives us a great picture of what this means.  It says, “When the fullness of time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman…”  The fullness of time refers to the fact that everything was in place, everything had happened as it needed to, and God was providing what was needed.  Is that awesome or what? Every single gift, event, circumstance, trial and more is planned out by My Provider so when it reaches me it is the ‘perfect gift’. (James 1:17)

Another layer of Jehovah Jirah is that He is showing us.  He is revealing to us what He wants us to know as we seek His purpose for our lives.  He supplies everything that that we need for every part of our lives.  Paul tells us, “My God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in Glory…” (Philippians 4:19)

The third part of the Name is He is my provider.  Even though it is often the first thought that is applied to the Hebrew word (Jehovah Jirah)  the actual meaning goes far beyond material needs.  As the Creator of ALL that is, was, and is to come, there is nothing that is not at His disposal for me (us).  It is His to give whether it be physical or spiritual.  And more than that He wants to!!!!

Worship Him in song!     JEHOVAH JIRAH

Jehovah Jirah, my Provider, how can I say thanks for what You have provided and will continue to provide.  Yet I must.  It is incredible that my little speck of life is of such importance to You that You have orchestrated all that must happen to show Your Glory!  Thank You for humbling me with Your greatness!  Use my life, Lord!  Make it so in Jesus Precious Name!

  5. Those are two of my favorite verses. I suppose to be honest it’s hard to choose a favorite but I really do like these. I was glad to read that all was going well with your brother. I so love my fur babies and never want them to be sick or hurt or anything. I can definitely commiserate. Take care dear friend. Marie

  6. Hi Marie, I appreciated your thoughts on God providing what is good for us in our lives, sadly some think that everything that happens to us is by the hand of God, good and bad but He tells us differently, He does not plan evil for us or does He afflict us willingly, this world is under Satan’s control and the suffering and trials we go through are not from God, He never tempts us to do evil either, some who suffer do blame God claiming He does evil to bring good out of it but the Scriptures tell us this is slander.

    Lamentations 3: 33 For He doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.

    Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

    Christian Love – Anne.
