God Our Provider

Genesis 22:14 says that “Yahweh-Yireh” means “the Lord will provide,” and that this name became a proverb: “On the mountain of the Lord it will be provided.”
On the mountain of the Lord, God provided the ram as a sacrifice in place of Abraham’s son Isaac. A few thousand years later, God again provided the substitute sacrifice—this time for us and our children. On Mount Moriah, God had given the ram to save Isaac’s life. On Mount Calvary, God gave Himself in the Person of His only Son Jesus Christ to save us and all creation from death of everything good and eternal separation from Himself.ram--thicket

The Lord will provide. The Lord will provide.
In the mountain of the Lord, the Lord will provide.
Everything I need to follow Him, my Guide,
All my journey through, the Lord will provide

2 Peter 1:3 (New Living Translation) “By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence.”
