Genesis 22:14 “Abraham called the name of that place “The Lord will Provide.”

Where do you run when your faith is tested to the brink of failure, to the point of doubting what God has promised? You must run to Yahweh Jireh and discover what He has said, He will do–the Lord will provide.
The name is a combination to two attributes of God: the Lord will see and the Lord will provide. Because God is all-knowing, He is able to provide for, or supply, the need whatever it may be or simply “The Lord will see to it.” In Genesis 22 God tested Abraham with what seemed impossible. He was to take his special son, Isaac, and sacrifice him as a burnt offering to God. Because Abraham believed in the promises of God, he knew God would raise Isaac from the dead because he was the promised son from God to Abraham.
This was a test of obedience for Abraham. God stopped Abraham and provided a ram for the burnt offering. He called the place Yahweh Jireh because God provided the sacrifice for him. When God asks the impossible of you, it becomes possible when you know and trust in Yahweh Jireh. Philippians 4:19 says, “God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” You can know that in your trial, the great test of your faith, Yahweh Jireh will see your deepest need and provide for you through Jesus Christ.
