The name Jehovah is synonymous with the name Yahweh and is often used as a verbal replacement due to the name Yahweh not being spoken aloud. Therefore, you’ll sometimes see the name Jehovah Jireh written as Yahweh Jireh or Yhwh Jireh.
Jehovah Jireh literally means, “the Lord will see to it” but is often translated as, “the Lord will provide.” The Lord sees my needs and will see to it that my needs are met. We are first introduced to this name of God in Genesis 22 when God provides a ram for Abraham during his offering of Isaac. How powerful to be given this name at this time, a precursor to and illustration of the substitutionary sacrifice of the Lamb of God. He saw our desperate need to be saved and provided us the way to be redeemed.
We can also see the promise in the name Jehovah Jireh sprinkled throughout Scripture:
And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:19
Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. -Psalm 37:4
Reading: Genesis 22:1-14
Meditation: What stands out to you in this passage? What does the name Jehovah Jireh mean to you? What is the significance of God providing for us? How has God provided for you throughout your life? How do you wait for Him to provide? Meditate on the name Jehovah Jireh, what it signifies and how knowing this name deepens your understanding of who God is.
Prayer: Pray using the name, Jehovah Jireh. Praise Him for His power to provide and for His perfect timing. Thank Him for His provisions.
Be Still: Take time to pause and sit in silence, quieting your mind and body as you listen for God’s voice.
