The Lord Is My Provider

Written by Walter Kambulow

The Lord Is My Provider The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me besiderepparttar still waters.He restores my soul; He leads me inrepparttar 140866 paths of righteousness For His name's sake. Psalm 23:1-3 Blessrepparttar 140867 LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Blessrepparttar 140868 LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed likerepparttar 140869 eagle's. Psalm 103:1-5 For those who trust inrepparttar 140870 LORD He isrepparttar 140871 all sufficient One, including their provider and healer. In Psalm 23 we findrepparttar 140872 seven names of God: 1.JEHOVAH-RA 2.JEHOVAH-JIREH 3.JEHOVAH-SHALOM 4.JEHOVAH- TSIDKNELL 5.JEHOVAH-NISSI 6.JEHOVAH-RAPHEGA 7.JEHOVAH-SHAMMAH In verse we have The Lord is My Shepherd- "SHEPHERD"-JEHOVAH-RA (Jehovahrepparttar 140873 Shepherd). Ifrepparttar 140874 Lord is our shepherd, then we own this Psalm 23 as ours. And as our LORD He forgives all our iniquities, heals all our diseases, redeems our life from destruction, crowns us with lovingkindness and tender mercies, and satisfies our mouth with good things, so that our youth is renewed likerepparttar 140875 eagle's. Whenrepparttar 140876 Lord is our Shepherd, we don't lack in anything. HE is our Provider - JEHOVAH-JIREH. God’s word is true: Then they came torepparttar 140877 place of which God had told him. And Abraham built an altar there and placedrepparttar 140878 wood in order; and he bound Isaac his son and laid him onrepparttar 140879 altar, uponrepparttar 140880 wood. And Abraham stretched out his hand and tookrepparttar 140881 knife to slay his son. Butrepparttar 140882 Angel ofrepparttar 140883 LORD called to him from heaven and said, "Abraham, Abraham!" So he said, "Here I am." And He said, "Do not lay your hand onrepparttar 140884 lad, or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me." Then Abraham lifted his eyes and looked, and there behind him was a ram caught in a thicket by its horns. So Abraham went and tookrepparttar 140885 ram, and offered it up for a burnt offering instead of his son. And Abraham calledrepparttar 140886 name ofrepparttar 140887 place, The-LORD-Will-Provide; as it is said to this day, "Inrepparttar 140888 Mount of The LORD it shall be provided." Genesis 22:9-14 Whatever we need God will provide. He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? We shall not want… JEHOVAH-JIREH (JEHOVAH is our Provider). When we knowrepparttar 140889 Lord as our 'Shepherd' He will be our provider, all sufficient-one. Therefore, we shall not lack or want anything because nothing is impossible with God And because JEHOVAH- SHALOM, The-LORD-Is-Peace, He makes us to lie down in green pastures; He leads us besiderepparttar 140890 still waters. The sheep are very happy. Lying down in Green pastures and still waters (not turbulent waters) all speak of peaceful conditions. God’s word tells us that Isreal was in turbulent condition. The Midianites surrounded them. At that time, they cried. God gave a deliverer called 'GIDEON'. The Word of God records: Thenrepparttar 140891 LORD said to him, "Peace be with you; do not fear, you shall not die." So Gideon built an altar there torepparttar 140892 LORD, and called it The-LORD-Is-Peace. To this day it is still in Ophrah ofrepparttar 140893 Abiezrites. Judges 6:23-24 'Behold,repparttar 140894 days are coming,' saysrepparttar 140895 LORD, 'that I will perform that good thing which I have promised torepparttar 140896 house of Israel and torepparttar 140897 house of Judah: 'In those days and at that time I will cause to grow up to David A Branch of righteousness; He shall execute judgment and righteousness inrepparttar 140898 earth. In those days Judah will be saved, And Jerusalem will dwell safely. And this isrepparttar 140899 name by which she will be called: THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.' Jeremiah 33:14-16 The American Heritage Dictionary definesrepparttar 140900 word “saved” as: Save v. saved, sav•ing, saves. --tr. 1.a. To rescue from harm, danger, or loss. b. To set free fromrepparttar 140901 consequences of sin; redeem. 2. To keep in a safe condition; safeguard. 3. To preventrepparttar 140902 waste or loss of; conserve. Yes, Jesus Christ is our Salvation and He rescues us from harm, danger or loss, He keeps us in a safte condition and preventsrepparttar 140903 waste or loss of things for us as we abide underrepparttar 140904 shadow ofrepparttar 140905 Almighty.God’s word is true: He who dwells inrepparttar 140906 secret place ofrepparttar 140907 Most High Shall abide underrepparttar 140908 shadow ofrepparttar 140909 Almighty. I will say ofrepparttar 140910 LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust." Surely He shall deliver you fromrepparttar 140911 snare ofrepparttar 140912 fowler And fromrepparttar 140913 perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. Psalm 91:1-4 No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone. You shall tread uponrepparttar 140914 lion andrepparttar 140915 cobra, The young lion andrepparttar 140916 serpent you shall trample underfoot. "Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation." Psalm 91:10-16

The Epoch of History…

Inrepparttar beginning God planted a garden, eastward in Eden. In His garden were all kinds of trees, which were pleasant torepparttar 140865 sight and good for food; however, inrepparttar 140866 middle ofrepparttar 140867 garden God placed two special trees:repparttar 140868 tree of life andrepparttar 140869 tree ofrepparttar 140870 knowledge of good and evil. He told his caretaker, Adam, not to eatrepparttar 140871 fruit fromrepparttar 140872 tree ofrepparttar 140873 knowledge of good and evil or he would die spiritually and begin dying physically.

The garden had a river also. The river wateredrepparttar 140874 garden and then divided into four headwaters that flowed out acrossrepparttar 140875 expanse. Two ofrepparttar 140876 rivers are still present:repparttar 140877 Tigris andrepparttar 140878 Euphrates rivers in modern day Iraq. The garden was perfection untilrepparttar 140879 tempter came. The tempter appeared as a serpent, deceiving Eve and conquering God’s Adam or first man. Sin infestedrepparttar 140880 garden and God’s caretakers. Thereupon Adam and Eve were driven fromrepparttar 140881 garden to workrepparttar 140882 ground byrepparttar 140883 sweat of their brows.

There is another Epoch in history that parallelsrepparttar 140884 Garden of Eden. The garden is Gethsemane. The name means “oil press.” It is whererepparttar 140885 oil is squeezed fromrepparttar 140886 olive. The last Adam, Jesus Christ, would be “pressed” in agony as He prayed to acceptrepparttar 140887 chalice of death atrepparttar 140888 Father’s hand. There was also a tree, central torepparttar 140889 garden. The tree was hewn into a Cross and placed on Mount Calvary. But there was also a river, but not a river of water. It wasrepparttar 140890 river of Life, manifested in flesh and blood. And they called Him Jesus because “He will save His people from their sins.”

Jesus toldrepparttar 140891 woman atrepparttar 140892 well in John chapter four and verse 10 that “If you knewrepparttar 140893 gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.” Jesus,repparttar 140894 last Adam, said again torepparttar 140895 woman, “Everyone who drinks of this [natural] water will thirst again; (verse 14) but whoever drinks ofrepparttar 140896 water that I will give him shall never thirst; butrepparttar 140897 water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.” Jesus isrepparttar 140898 water of life that took on flesh and dwelt among us. But many have refused His living water because they were filled with another kind of water.
