Jehovah – Jireh – The Lord will provide

Jehovah – Jireh - The Lord will provide
God’s provision always exceeds our expectation!
No matter what you think He is, God is the master of surprises. He doesn’t need “favorable circumstances” and “appropriate conditions” to fulfill his promises. When God says, “This valley of ditches will be filled with water” we may expect a wind or rain. However, beyond our “natural limitaions” God will do what he said he will do and He needs nothing because He himself is the source. He is self-sufficient, which means God doesn’t need anything because he is perfect. In fact, it is on God alone that everything in the universe depends for its existence (see Acts 17: 25; Col. 1: 16, 17; Rom. 1: 36; Heb. 11:3; 2 Cor. 4:6; Rev. 4:11)
He made a way through the sea. He provided Manna in the desert. He provides peace in sobering circumstances, a shelter in a stormy situation, strength in the time fear, comfort in the time of grief, etc. God cannot be micromanaged. His plan exceeds our anticipation, vision, and understanding. His thoughts and ways for us are higher than we think. Because God is beyond human comprehension. He always provides for his children. He always meets his children’s needs at the right time and the right place. He is Jehovah – Jireh: the
Lord Who will see to it that our every need is meet. He knows our need because He sees in advance and meets our need just the right time. (Read Matthew 6:31-32, Matthew 7:11 and Philippians 4:19 too)
Obedience leads to provision!
God will never ask us to do something unless He provides a way. God never puts us in a situation that he has not already given us the ability to handle. When God wants to do something in your life, He doesn’t require your ability but availability. He doesn’t look at your ability but readiness and willingness. Your availability to walk in obedience and faith into what He about to accomplish in you is a key in your journey to Moriah. When Abraham rose up early that morning as we read in Genesis 22: 5 and packed for the journey to Moriah, the journey he about to start wasn’t easy. God had asked him to do an unthinkable thing and illogical! But Abraham did not wondering, or questioning. He believed God and trusts him in faith that God would provide. God wanted to see if Abraham would obey Him even though he could not understand why or unthinkable or unreasonable. God Provides Through our Obedience! The only way to experience all that God has for us is to walk in complete obedience.
God Provides at Just the Right Time!
Sometimes when we are overwhelmed by “difficult situation” we want God carrying out his plans “on time.” But, the reality of God’s providence reveals the difference between our thoughts and His (Isa. 55: 8-9) and our concept the “right time” and His “appointed time.” I believe in God’s miraculous provision all the times.
However, because He didn’t provide “as we want Him to do” doesn’t mean He doesn’t care. “God is never late, and he’s never early. He’s always right on time.”
God is never too late. We may wait too late sometimes but not God because there is no “too late” with God. He is always right on time. For God says, “At just the right time, I heard you. On the day of salvation, I helped you.”
God always provides. God is working according to His own time schedule – not ours. His provision is always on time, but when we confuse our inability to wait patiently with his ability to provide there is always a problem. The expression “they that wait upon the LORD” (Isa. 40:31) implies that a Christian should be willing to allow God to decide the terms because God provides at just the right time.

1. THE GIFT OF WISDOM
There are three types of wisdom:
* The wisdom of God (I Corinthians 2:6-7)
* The wisdom of the world (I Corinthians 2:6)
* The wisdom of man (Ecclesiastes 1:16-18)
The gift of the word of wisdom is the application of knowledge that God gives you ( I Corinthians 2:6-7). This type of wisdom is a gift which cannot be gained through study or experience and should by no means try to replace them. The gift of the word of wisdom is seeing life from God's perspective. As a Christian exercises this gift, he begins to develop a fear of the Lord. This is the "beginning of wisdom" according to Proverbs 1:7.

God's Will

Jesus said that His true relations are those who know and do the Father’s will: “Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother” (Mark 3:35. In the parable of the two sons, Jesus rebukes the chief priests and elders for failing to do the will of the Father; specifically, they “did not repent and believe” (Matthew 21:32). At its most basic, the will of God is to repent of our sin and trust in Christ. If we have not taken that first step, then we have not yet accepted God’s will.

Once we receive Christ by faith, we are made God’s children (John 1:12), and He desires to lead us in His way (Psalm 143:10). God is not trying to hide His will from us; He wants to reveal it. In fact, He has already given us many, many directions in His Word. We are to “give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you” (1 Thessalonians 5:1). We are to do good works (1 Peter 2:15). And “it is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality” (1 Thessa…
