Jehovah Jireh - Enough


I have never been more loved than I am right now! I have never been loved any less than I am right now. I’m talking about God’s love, of course.

In any other relationship, love grows or can wane. But not with God’s love. Let that sink in for a moment.


Consider Romans 5:8


But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.


God is not just enough, he’s MORE than enough. He’s ALWAYS enough, He is NEVER NOT enough. He is ALWAYS ENOUGH.


In Genesis 22 we find the story of Abraham and Isaac… you know the one where God tells Abraham to offer the son he had waited a lifetime for, as a burnt offering. In verse 7 Isaac asks his father where the ram (or lamb) was for the burnt offering?

Abraham, knowing the answer and stepping into his great faith replies:


"God will provide for himself the lamb for the burnt offering, my son,”

God will provide is where God’s name Jehovah Jireh is first used. And of course we know how the story goes, God HIMSELF provides a ram whose horns are stuck in a thorny bush, for the sacrifice. This is such a great foreshadowing of Jesus; salvation from being sacrificed ourselves, the Lamb of God, even the thicket foreshadows the crown of thorns. God is our great Provider in every way.


God sees you. He sees your need. He sees your heart. He sees the problems that you're facing. God sees the tests you're going through. And because God sees, He provides.

HE IS ENOUGH!
