Jireh, You are Enough! Part Three
“May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble; may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.” Psalm 20:1
When Zion was feeling hopeless, God reminded them about the promises. He introduced himself, saying, “I am the LORD your Savior and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.” Isaiah 49:26. Likewise, God wants to introduce himself to you as Jehovah Jireh at this current moment when you feel like nothing has changed. He will turn every bitterness of your life into good news, so you can know He never leaves or forsake you.
I remember the story of the children of Israelites. After traveling three days in the desert without water, the Israelites came to Marah, which means “bitter.” The water was too bitter to drink, as thirsty as they were after three days in the desert. So Moses cried out to the Lord to provide water for His people. The Lord directed Moses to a tree that was then cast into the water and turned into sweet drinking water. So if you need anything, don’t hesitate to call on Him. He will never let you down.
Exodus 15:25 says, “And Moses cried unto the Lord, and the Lord showed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them.”
But the water was not the only bitter thing in that desert. The people’s hearts were bitter. They were murmuring against Moses and God. It took God to sweeten their hearts as He sweetened the water. Both were miracles of God’s provision. God demonstrated that He is indeed our Provider. He is the source of all things and gives everybody liberally. In as much as he knows what is good for us per time, He would surely give to His children; you need to ask and trust Him because He provides.
“The young lions suffer want and hunger, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.” Psalm 34:10. With Jehovah Jireh on your side, a better life is sure and guaranteed for you. The Lord is your Shepherd; you will not lack any good thing; neither will you be deprived of the blessing of an open heaven. Therefore, call on Jesus with a pure and clean heart. Hold on to Jesus, the Shepherd of your soul. In John 6:35, Jesus said, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.
1. Thank you, Jesus, for you have been the Shepherd of my life.
2. Oh God, I am grateful for your steadfast love that has kept me from sin.
3. Lord, my Provider, work in my life as necessary to produce sweetness in my heart and soul in Jesus’ name. Amen.
