Devotions for Life


“Abraham called the name of that place The Lord Will Provide, as it is said to this day, “In the mount of the Lord it will be provided” (Genesis 22:14).
Many of the Divine Names in Genesis are simply a combination of Yahweh (Jehovah) and some word that depicts a characteristic of God. The setting of the name being used demonstrates some need by man God has met. Such is the case with Yahweh-Yireh. Yahweh is the personal name of God, usually translated Lord. Yireh is a transliteration of a Hebrew word used many times in scripture. In Genesis 22:14, where this name is used, the word Yireh is sometimes translated “to see,” and other times “to provide.” This name tells us God foresees the needs of man and provides everything needed, doing so because of His grace and love. Two sacrifice provisions of Yahweh-Yireh show His character.


What Does God’s Love Look Like Part 2

“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God” (I John 4:7).
John tells us that love is from God and those who love know God. We are to love one another. What does godly love look like? We are going to go to I Corinthians 13:4-8a and look at the characteristics of love.


What Manner Of Love

“And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him…….”–Luke 23:33
When the time came that God was ready to reconcile the world to him, he sent his only son into this world. His son (Jesus) went about teaching and doing good (Acts1:1). There were some who received him but the great masses of people rejected him, scorned him, falsely accused him and treated him in a shameful manner. Then one day he was led from Gethsemane to be tried, condemned and crucified. The tomb could not hold him, he arose from the grave to live forevermore as our mediator and redeemer (Heb. 7:25, 1 Tim. 2:5). Because he lives, we can face tomorrow with no fear.
