HE provides!

Jehovah-Jireh, the Lord will provide.  "And Abraham said, God will provide himself the lamb for a burnt-offering, my son. So they went both of them together"  (Gen 22.8)  "And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah-jireh. As it is said to this day, In the mount of Jehovah it shall be provided."  (Gen 22.14).  And of course Abraham's experience was a foreshadow of the LORD providing himself a lamb who would take away the sins of the whole world.  He has provided.

We are thanking Jehovah-Jireh this morning, as Adrian just called from the side of a mountain to announce that he successfully hunted a cow elk!  We will now have local, organic, grass fed meat provided for our family for another year!  Thank you God, Creator and provider of all.

"The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven." --Hebrews 1.3, NIV


  1. yum. we're enjoying fresh venison tonight! elk sounds delicious. Either way, it's good meat on the table and in our bellies!

  2. I am happy for you! Craig is an elk hunter also, but he hunted this year, without any luck. I love to know that the freezer is stocked with (organic-grass-fed) elk also. Luckily, we still have enough to get us through the winter...I think. :) What good news, congratulations!
