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.

Backside of The Desert

And he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God. Exodus 3:1

Consider again where Moses met God at the end of his forty-year postgraduate course in Midian. In the unlikeliest place and at the unlikeliest time God brings us to the Great Moment. Moses, the adopted son of Pharaoh’s daughter, brought up in the courts of Egypt, had known more glamorous days than now, a shepherd in a desert. But the big day and the hallowed spot, however drab and ordinary on calendar or map, are the time and place when we meet God and do business with Him.

There may not be even a burning bush. And God may not reward with an immediate evidence of His presence and power. But the man who has come to God honestly and simply and humbly, with no reservations, offering a willing heart, feeling or no feeling, that man has reached his Horeb, and though he be on the backside of a desert, he is also at the mountain of God.
