The Mountain Of Jehovah Jireh

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

The phrase “Jehovah Jireh” or “Yahveh Yireh” comes from Genesis 22, when Abraham names the mountain on which he offered up Isaac. It means “The LORD shall provide.

So many believers invoke the name “Jehovah-Jireh” to claim the promise of God providing for whatever they need or want. But the name “Jehovah Jireh” or “Yahveh Yireh” is much deeper than that. Yahveh Yireh speaks of God providing the Lamb for the sacrifice – the Messiah Himself. Thus, God does provide for the needs of His people. So “Jehovah Jireh” declares that God will provide for your needs, but not necessarily the way you think. For what God provides is Himself. He is the answer to all of our needs – the need for love, for security, for meaning, for peace, for joy, for purpose – Jehovah Jireh – Yahveh Yireh – God will indeed provide for your need. But your need will only truly be answered when it’s answered in Him, who is the Answer. For Jehovah Jireh is the name of a mountain, the mountain on which God gave Himself on a cross for you.

Today’s Mission – Today, whatever you’re dealing with, a problem, a need, a conflict, a concern – lift it up to God and give Him thanks that He will provide.

The Messiah Of Geza

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

In Isaiah 11 it’s written, “There shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse…” But the word in Hebrew for “stem” is “geza.” “Geza” actually means “a stump” a “cut down tree or plant.” This Scripture is prophesying that Messiah will come forth as a twig growing out of a cut off tree stump. Thus Messiah would spring up from the broken, cut off stump of the throne and line of David.

If you look at the lives of those who are born again, you can always find some sort of tree trunk; an old life cut down, and yet out of which comes forth the life of Messiah. The life of Messiah comes forth in the cutting down of our pride, our plans, our hopes, our dreams, our happiness, our security, and all the rest of the old life. That is when Messiah’s life begins to grow. Remember that. Even now, when you see hopes, comforts, plans, securities, and dreams cut down in your life, don’t despair. For in Messiah, from every cut-down trunk, will come forth a shoot of something far better.

Today’s Mission – Today, give God your broken hopes and dreams. And surrender your current plans and desires to His will and allow Him to grow something better.
