Lord, I Want to Know You!

Week 4

Names of God

Jehovah & Jehovah-Jireh

Jehovah, our self-existent One                                                                                                                     You who possess essential life, who am I that You are mindful of me?

Something to think about…He needs & wants us because He is more than Jehovah…              He desires to meet the needs of those He created inn His own image!  Isn’t it neat to know that He becomes our provider, our shepherd, the One who sanctifies us… In Genesis 22:1-19 we looked at not only love, obedience & worship…we saw that Abraham knew his God by saying Who would provide a sacrifice.  We know that Abraham was very familiar that God was able to provide, to keep His promises because of God’s covenant He made with Abraham of a son, Isaac.  In verse 13 we see Abraham “observing” God providing…Abraham raised his eyes & looked, he didn’t stay focused on “the problem”.  We see that he even looked behind himself & saw the ram caught in the thicket…& lastly he took action, he went & took the ram & offered him up for a burnt offering in the place of his son!    What we learn from our observation at taking this second look is to always be on a God-hunt as Abraham was.

An idea for the New Year … starting a God-hunt journal!

Our music this week includes:

My Creator King, Jehovah Jireh, Who Am I that You are Mindful of Me?
