Weekly Insights into the Names of God
(Taken from the To Bear HIs Name Study by Sandra J. Mikler Davis)
This year we have been looking at the names of God:
  • January - ADONAI = our Sovereign Ruler; Almighty Master; Lord over all!!
  • February - JEHOVAH = He is Self-existent, Eternal, Righteous, Holy, and YHWH-I = AM WHO I AM.
  • March - ELOHIM = He is the Creator God; actively involved in the world He made.
  • April - EL ELYON = signifies the exaltedness, supremacy, and overwhelming majesty of His deity.
  • May - EL ROI = the all-seeing God
  • June - EL SHADDAI = God Almighty, complete, perfect; having integrity
  • July - JEHOVAH TSIDKENU = LORD our Righteousness; altogether Righteous
  • August - JEHOVAH ROHI = LORD my Shepherd; the Great Shepherd
  • September - JEHOVAH SHALOM = The LORD of Peace
  • October - JEHOVAH ROPHE = The LORD Who Heals
This month: JEHOVAH JIREH (Raah) – The LORD Who Provides - Week One

Before we begin to examine this wonderful name, it is important to know that Jehovah-Jireh is closely associated with another of God’s names – El Roi. We examined this name in May. El Roi means “The God Who Sees”. The God who sees the beginning and ending is also the God who provides in all of life as well.

It is interesting to note that the name “Jireh” is a derivative of another name, Mt. Moriah. To see the significance, we journey back to the story of Abraham and Isaac and the incredible moment in time when Isaac was to be offered up to God in obedience to God’s direct order.
Then God said, ‘Take your son, your only son, Isaac, whom you love,
and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering
on one of the mountains I will tell you about.’   Genesis 22:2
And again in Genesis 22:11 it states:
But the angel of the LORD called out to him from heaven,
‘Abraham, Abraham!’ ‘ Here I am’ he replied.
‘Do not lay a hand on the boy’, He said, ‘Do not do anything to him.
Now I know that you fear God,
because you have not withheld from Me your son, your only son.’

Abraham was in a difficult place, but in his extreme circumstances, he obeyed.
  • What is it that the Lord is asking of me today that needs to be placed on
    the altar of sacrifice?
  • Am I willing to obey?
