Jehovah-Jireh | The Lord Our Provider

Jehovah-Jireh | The Lord Our Provider

As Christians, we often hear the name Jehovah-Jireh mentioned in songs and sermons. But do we truly understand the significance of this name and what it means for our lives? In this Bible study, we will dive into the meaning of Jehovah-Jireh, how it relates to us as believers, and how Jesus is the ultimate fulfilment of this name. 

The Backstory 

Jehovah-Jireh is a Hebrew name that means "The Lord Will Provide." This name is first mentioned in the Old Testament in Genesis 22:14, where Abraham names the place where he is about to sacrifice Isaac "Jehovah-Jireh." In this story, Abraham was obedient to God's command to sacrifice his son, but at the last moment, God provided a ram for the sacrifice. This demonstrated God's provision and faithfulness to Abraham. 

For us as believers, Jehovah-Jireh is a powerful reminder that God is our provider. This does not just mean that God provides our basic needs like food, shelter, and clothing. It also means that God provides for our emotional, spiritual, and relational needs. He is the one who gives us wisdom, peace, comfort, and joy. Therefore, we can trust in God's provision for us in every aspect of our lives.

Jesus is the Fulfilment of Jehovah-Jireh 

Moreover, Jesus is the ultimate fulfilment of Jehovah-Jireh. In the New Testament, Jesus often talked about God's provision and care for His people. In Matthew 6:26, Jesus said, "Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?" This demonstrates how God provides for even the smallest and seemingly insignificant parts of creation and how much more He loves and provides for His own children. 

Furthermore, in John 6:35, Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty." This shows how Jesus is not just the provider of physical bread, but the true source of our spiritual nourishment and sustenance. In Him, we find the satisfaction and fulfilment that our souls long for.

As we put our trust in Jesus, we can also be a part of God's provision for others. In 2 Corinthians 9:8, Paul writes, "And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work." This verse shows that God blesses us so that we can be a blessing to others. Whether it's through giving, serving, or loving those around us, we can partner with God in His provision for others.

Conclusion 

In conclusion, Jehovah-Jireh is not just a name, but a declaration of God's provision and faithfulness. Through Jesus, we can experience the fullness of this provision in our lives and be a vessel of His provision for others. Let us put our trust in Jehovah-Jireh, the Lord our provider, and allow Him to provide for every aspect of our lives. 


The Lord Jesus Christ is alive and well today, and able to do all things. All power is given Him, and through His name, we are forgiven, and through the shedding of His blood our sins are remitted, and that His Word stands as true today as it did 2000 years ago. Repentance of one's sins, water baptism in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and being baptized with the Holy Ghost is His divine specific plan of salvation.
