“And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19 NLT
God has always been known as a provider of needs. It goes all the way back to the beginning...creation. God had created man and recognized a need...“Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.” Genesis 2:18 NLT
One of the names of God identifies him as provider...Yahweh-Yireh. “Then Abraham looked up and saw a ram caught by its horns in a thicket. So he took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering in place of his son. Abraham named the place Yahweh-Yireh (which means “the LORD will provide”). To this day, people still use that name as a proverb: “On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided.” Genesis 22:13-14 NLT
God provided the lamb needed for Abraham's sacrifice, as well as the lamb needed for our sacrifice...The Lamb of God.
“The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” John 1:29 NKJV
There has been no greater need met by God for all mankind than this...Jesus
Thank you Lord for providing for me.
