You have not passed this way before

The Lord will provide
by J.R. Miller (1840-1912)

“You have not passed this way before.” Joshua 3:4

“Abraham named the place Jehovah-Jireh (which means the LORD will provide).” Genesis 22:14

As you begin meditating on this verse, write deep in your heart this word with the strongest confidence: Jehovah-Jireh. This name tells you . . .
that you can trust God always;
that no promise of His ever fails;
that He does all things well;
that out of all seeming loss and destruction of human hopes, He brings blessing.

You have not passed this way before. There will be both sorrows and joys, both failures and successes. You cannot predict your future experiences. You cannot see the next step before your feet. Yet Jehovah-Jireh calls you to trust Him calmly. He bids you put away all anxieties and foreboding, because the Lord will provide!

    Thank you for sharing these encouraging words. This was another confirmation for me to have Jehovah-Jireh as my prayer theme for2013. My family has been under intense spiritual warfare for about two months now. All we can do is trust, pray, fast, believe and wait on the Lord to act on our behalf and His perfect timing. May G-d continue to bless the important work of your hands as you bless and encourage others.

    I am being taught Jehovah is indeed Jehovah-Jireh for me. This is very timely.
