The great provider
ne of the names of God
is Jehovah Jireh, which
means “the Lord our provider”
or “the Lord will provide.” It’s
so wonderful to know that God
is our source for everything we
need and He cares about every-
thing we care about. There’s no
need so small that He doesn’t
know about it, and nothing too
big that He can’t provide for us.
He is omniscient (all know-
ing), omnipresent (everywhere,
all the time), and omnipotent
(all powerful). (See Jeremiah
42:11 AMP.)
The Bible says He’s…
Our shelter, refuge and hiding
place (Psalm 91)
The one who comforts us (2
Corinthians 1:3)
Our healer (Psalm 103:3)The
source of wisdom (James 1:5)
And everything else we need!
The Lord is your Provider.
He loves you and He has a good
plan for your life. He wants to
bless you so you can fulfi ll His
plan and purpose…so you can
really enjoy your life. And in
His Word, He tells us who He
is and how we can access every-
thing we need through Christ.
The problem is, sometimes
we miss out on what God wants
to do in in our lives because we
go to people, expecting them to
give us what we need, instead
of God. Now, God will work
through the people He puts in
our lives to help us, but we need
to go to Him fi rst and let Him
determine the best way to meet
our needs.
Philippians 4:19 (AMP) says,
“And my God will liberally sup-
ply (fi ll to the full) your every
need according to His riches in
glory in Christ Jesus.” This verse
clearly tells us that God wants
to meet our “every need…in
Christ Jesus.” But we can’t just
take this one scripture and ex-
pect to have everything we need
without reading it in the context
of the whole Bible.
Matthew 6:33 (AMP) says,
“But seek (aim at and strive af-
ter) fi rst of all His kingdom and
His righteousness (His way of
doing and being right), and then
all these things taken together
will be given you besides.”
When we seek things instead
of God, our focus is not in the
right place. Our relationship
with God needs to be our num-
ber one priority all the time,
because everything we need is
found in Him. When we seek
God to know Him more and to
learn the right way to live, then
we can have confi dence that He
will take care of everything that
concerns us and meet all of our
I’ve found that when I spend
more time seeking God’s face
and not His hand—what He can
give me and do for me—then
my desires and thoughts line up
more with His will. And when
I spend more time praying for
God to show me how to walk
