Jehovah Jireh. It is my favorite of God's Names.
It means the Lord will provide.
Just this morning, I prayed --wrote it in my journal--Be our Jehovah Jireh.
Just this afternoon, I received an email from our sending agency informing us of a donation received via Paypal. A very large gift. A generous gift from brothers and sisters that understand. A gift so generous and sacrificial that it took my breath away.
And then Hubby comes home and tells of a business acquaintance that has verbally comitted to purchase ONE of our six airline tickets. A HUGE BLESSING!
1 John 3:1a
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!
Don't think I count only financial blessings. No. This evening, Hubby offered (without my asking) to take the children to a basketball game. Two and a half hours of solitude. Ahhhhh, a short but much needed and much appreciated reprieve from the hustle and bustle and noise and responsibility.
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
He does not change, and yet I have the nerve to wonder...to wonder if He will provide this time. And then I am so totally undeserving...but, He does it again. He provides in the most unexpected ways and always in His timing.
for every animal of the forest is Mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills.
Oh, for grace to trust Him more...
