One of the key names for God is JEHOVAH-JIREH. This precious name tells us that God is our Provider. The literal Hebrew meaning is, "The Lord will Provide," or "God my Provider”. What does this mean, why is this so precious? Because we are assured that God actually does indeed care for us and always will provide. So, we can rest and trust in him when times of hardship come or when we can’t see what is ahead.
