"Abraham called the name of that place The LORD Will Provide, as it is said to this day, “In the mount of the LORD it will be provided."
Abraham was prepared to sacrifice his beloved son, but at the same time he believed God had the power to resurrect the boy. God had promised to make a great nation out of Isaac, and Abraham knew this would not be possible unless Isaac lived. Abraham moved forward in obedient faith and God provided a substitute for the boy. A ram caught in the thicket. Abraham sacrificed the ram and called the place Jehovah-Jireh -- The Lord Will Provide. So many times we are reluctant to do what God has called us to do, because we don't really believe His promises. Like Abraham, we must take God at His word, step out in faith, and trust Him with the outcome. When we do, God will show us that He is Jehovah-Jireh -- The Lord Who Provides.
