The~Lord~Will~See~To~It..More than a Promise~ It’s His Name

Through various examples this week regarding the difference between the poverty spirit and the poor in spirit I felt the Lord lead me into this on the Provision and the Promises  of God. I’d taken the name for granted,  the Name of Jehovah-Jireh… (or Yehovah Yireh)….I took it for granted because of the song.

“Jehovah-Jireh, my Provider, His grace is sufficient for me, for me, for me… Jehovah-Jireh, my Provider, His grace is sufficient for me… My God shall supply all my needs, according to His riches in glory, He will give His angels charge over me, Jehovah Jireh cares for me, for me, for me…Jehovah-Jireh cares for me..” “And His name is The-Lord-Will-Provide”…(Gen 22:14)

 

 Jehovah is “The Lord” and Jireh is “Will Provide”… yet the Strong’s concordance barely mentioned the word “provide.”

 

It said “The Lord will see to it”

 

The literal Hebrew is “The-Lord-Will-See-To-It”….

 

                      It wasn’t just a promise.

                                          

                       It was His name!

“The-Lord-Will-See-To-It”

He introduced Himself by that name on MT Moriah. Here is where Abraham was told by the Lord that he was to sacrifice his only son as a burnt offering. I know you know the story. But the interesting thing is… Moriah actually means in Hebrew “Seen by Jehovah”… 

raw-aw’ H7200
(God will provide a ram- from Gen 22:8)
A primitive root; to see, literally or figuratively (in numerous applications, direct and implied, transitively, intransitively and causatively): – advise self, appear, approve, behold, X certainly, consider, discern, (make to) enjoy, have experience, gaze, take heed, X indeed, X joyfully, lo, look (on, one another, one on another, one upon another, out, up, upon), mark, meet, X be near, perceive, present, provide, regard, (have) respect, (fore-, cause to, let) see (-r, -m, one another), shew (self), X sight of others, (e-) spy, stare, X surely, X think, view, visions. 

yeh-ho-vaw’ yir-eh’ H3070 (Jehovah Jireh- The Lord will Provide- from Gen 22:14)
From H3068 and H7200; Jehovah will see (to it); Jehovah-Jireh, a symbolical name for MT. Moriah: – Jehovah-Jireh.

And said, By Myself have I sworn, saith the LORD (Gen 22:16)

And he said, Lord GOD, whereby shall I know that I shall inherit it?
And he said unto him, Take me an heifer of three years old, and a she goat of three years old,and a ram of three years old, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon.
And he took unto him all these,and divided them in the midst, and laid each piece one against another: but the birds divided he not.
And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram;and, lo, a horror of great darkness fell upon him.
And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; (Gen 15:8-13)

And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces. (Gen 15:17)

 


Deep sleep fell upon Abram and yet AFTER the deep sleep fell upon him…. this is when God spoke to him…. And it was GOD who came down as a smoking furnace and a burning lamp and passed between the pieces.. God made a covenant with Abraham and this covenant was not dependant upon Abraham.

For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he swore by himself,
Saying, Surely, blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee.
And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.
For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife.
Wherein, God, willing more abundantly to show unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath:
That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie,we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us
(Heb 6:13-18)

Our God took Abraham upon a mountain where it is called “Seen by God”…

 

We have situations that are as mountains, but these mountains that stand before us are SEEN BY GOD…. and the Lord even says that upon this mountain, upon this BIG MOUNTAIN that we are standing upon and that we face, upon this BIG MOUNTAIN OF GREAT SACRIFICE, He has introduced Himself as The-Lord-Will- SEE-To-It… How will He see to it? 

He says that it is by Himself He swears, takes an oath, promises, to see to it. Hebrews tells us that people swear by something greater than themselves…

“God as my witness”
“I swear upon Heaven” 

Because nobody swears by anything lower….

 

“I swear upon the sluggard”

“I swear upon hell”

“I swear to Satan”..

See?  Who does that?

Since God’s promises cannot be dependent upon Him swearing upon anything lower than Himself, His covenant with Abraham was not made with Abraham, but rather Himself,  for it was HE that appeared as the smoking furnace and the burning lamp and walked among the heifer, the ram, the pigeon, the dove, and the goat. He Himself swore by Himself because there was none greater than Himself to swear upon.

That means that when He promises something to us, He will see to it that it is performed. When He promises something to us, we can guarantee it will happen.   He sees our mountain, He also sees to our Provision.
.
The Lord is the one who provides. It is His name. It is for His Namesake that He will keep His promises.

 

 He has sworn by Himself.

Hebrews 6:17 again says that we are the heirs of that promise.  

We are an heir to that promise. He cannot and will not fail us.

By Myself I have sworn

For there was none greater

By Myself I have sworn

And I cannot fail

By Myself I have sworn

It’s not up to you

Just believe in My Word

Trust in My Love

Believe in the Goodness

 That comes from above you

It is there for your taking

 Sin can’t keep Me from giving 

 But only stops your believing

That I want you to have

 Every spiritual blessing

Already there

By Myself I have sworn

Believe Me

 By Myself I have sworn

Trust Me

By Myself I have sworn

Love Me

Love me as I have loved you
