Ask. Believe. Receive.

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it and it will be yours. Mark 11:24 (NIV)

Yahweh Yireh is known as being associated with Abraham in Genesis 22. But Abraham did not coin the name as we know it. I discovered that the Hebrew word for provide – raah is found in the beginning (Genesis 1). The word also means “to see”, “to appear” and “to become visible” among other similar meanings including “to provide”. In Genesis 1 verses, 4, 10, 12, 18, 21, 25 and 31: we find the simple yet powerful phrase: “And God saw that it was good”.

Yahweh’s provision is confirmation, evidence if you will, that He sees us, is aware of our needs and becomes an exciting opportunity for us to see Him. The invisible God makes Himself visible in our circumstances. This is what Abraham expected and experienced (Genesis 22:8 &14), along with many other bible characters and yes, so do you and I.

I understand from Genesis 1 that Yahweh perfectly created provision ahead of and in full preparation for his creation – and it was GOOD! His provision is perfect and is made is visible in the place of faith and obedience. So, when you ask, believe, and receive what was already established according to the will of the Omnipotent God. He has already declared that it is good!

Read: Genesis 22:1-18

Pray (prompt): Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving and Supplication – Heavenly Father, you are the Almighty Provider and you see us and will become even more visible in our lives and circumstances today. I need you today and I believe that you are able to meet my needs like no one else can…

Write: The provision is already made in the place where Yahweh (God) is sending you, have you been worried about what will be the results of your next move? Use this moment to declare your trust in Yahweh Yireh.
