The Lord Your Provider

beggar[1]“And Abraham called the name of that place the LORD your Provider (Yehovah Yireh): as it is said to this day, in the mount of the LORD it shall be seen.” Genesis 22:14

The name Yehovah reveals God as the Great I AM, the self-existent God by whom all things came to be. When Yehovah is combined with another name, such as Provides, it becomes the compound name the LORD your provider or I AM your Provider.

God is seen from Genesis 1, “In the beginning God…” through Revelation 22, “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.” as the source of all things, and that by Him all things are created, sustained, and for His ultimate glory. “For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.” Romans 11:36, “God that made the world and all things therein… For in him we live, and move, and have our being…” Acts 17:24 & 28.

The natural progression of such thinking is that man is a poor beggar before Almighty God, which is why Jesus said, “Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5:3

Unless men understand their true state, which is needy and dependent upon God for everything, pride will surely be their undoing.

Christian, what do you depend on God for?
