HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div

And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son. 14 And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the Lord it shall be seen.Genesis 22:13-14

And what does He provide?

BREAD when I am hungry. It seems natural to begin there. He has a care for my body as well as for my soul. He is certainly not desirous that I should have wealth or distinction or the means of indulgence and display. But, if I trust Him, I shall get enough for comfort — if not enough for luxury; enough to rid me from unworthy worry — if not enough to free me from wholesome dependence and continuous faith. Every modest and present need, He is sure to satisfy.

HELP when I am helpless — that, too, the Lord will provide. Is it the discipline of my own inner life? Is it to escape this entrancing world? I am sufficient for none of these things.

  1. Sometimes my road is rough,
  2. Sometimes it is steep,
  3. Sometimes it is dark,
  4. Sometimes it is slippery.

My heart whispers discouragement, and says, “This is too hard for me!” But, when I come to the place, I find that God Himself has solved my difficulties, and put to flight my fears!

And SALVATION when I am burdened with sin — this also, this best of all, my Lord will provide. It was a lamb for sacrifice which Jehovah-Jireh prepared on the bare summit of Moriah. And at the end of the days, on the green hill of Calvary, close beside mount Moriah — a better Lamb died by divine appointment and made reconciliation for my iniquity! In the presence of such a sacrifice, how full my joy should be! Jesus, the precious Lamb of God . . . breaks every fetter, unbars every door, forgives every debt!
