Today’s post is about God who provides for all our needs. If you have read the recent posts in my prayer journey, we have been praising and praying to God who is the Creator, God the Most High, God Almighty and Jehovah the great I AM.
In Genesis 22:1-14 God reveals himself to Abraham on Mount Moriah that He is the GOD of PROVISION– JEHOVAH JIREH.
In church today, the Lord gave me this word which I shared:
The Lord says I am the God of Provision. I am Jehovah JIREH – for when you needed a Saviour, when you needed a Redeemer, when you needed a Restorer, when you needed a Healer – I gave you My son, Jesus and He is the answer to all you need.
Everything you need is provided in my son Jesus Christ, who is lifted to the highest place in heaven and everything is under His feet says the Lord. There is no name higher says the Lord. There is no one with more authority and power says the Lord than my son, Jesus.
I am the Lord of Provision and I have provided you with everything you need in my Son. Do you need Peace, He is the Prince of Peace. Do you need Joy, He is the joy of your salvation. Do you need strength, then He is your strength and the lifter up of your head.
Come to Him today says the Lord. Drink of Him and feast on Him for He is the true living waters and He is the true bread of life and He has everything you need.
When Abraham sets off on the journey to Mount Moriah, Isaac asks his father, where is the sacrifice? Abraham tells him that God will provide. Abraham also tells his servants to wait for them whilst they go to sacrifice until both he and the lad would return. Abraham wasn’t lying to them. Abraham was a righteous man. I think he absolutely believed that God would fulfil the promise to Him and would provide. He trusted in the righteousness and provision of God.
Abraham bound Isaac, laid him on the altar and was going to sacrifice him but the Lord stayed his hand. God knew then that Abraham was prepared to give him everything, even his son of the Promise. God provided a ram for the sacrifice instead of Isaac. Substitution. Abraham looked up and saw the provision of God.
God himself provided his only son Jesus as the sacrificial lamb in our place so that we could be redeemed from the curse of sin and death. Jesus told us to take our needs to the Father and ask for what we need so that God can provide.
In our prayer today let us meditate on Isaiah 61 and thank God for everything He has provided for us. Bring your needs to Him in faith.
Lord, we thank you today that you sent Jesus your beloved Son to us. He came with the Good News of Salvation; He has saved us, redeemed and restored us into relationship with you. We pray for those who don’t know Jesus yet that they will hear and respond to the Good News. Jesus heals the brokenhearted. We bring them to you today Lord. Bind their wounds with your love. Jesus has set free the captives. He is the Deliverer of those who are bound. We pray for those who are in bondage today that they will find freedom in Jesus. You have proclaimed the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God. We forgive those who have wronged us. Grant us your blessing and favour today please God. Lord we ask you to comfort and console all who are grieving at this time, give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord for your glory. Lord help us to rebuild our communities, to raise up the former desolations, and repair our ruined cities, the desolations of many generations. In Jesus’ precious name. Amen
