The passage in the Bible where God is called Jehovah Jireh, is about much more than just God's material provision for His people, though. The name is mentioned in Genesis 22, when God spares the life of Isaac and provides a ram to be sacrificed in his place. This is a story of God saving his people and keeping his promises.

To be honest, sometimes I struggle trusting God with the future. I forget that God is my Provider. He has loved us so much that He provided eternal life for us through the sacrifice of His own Son. When I fail to trust God with the future, it is usually because I am not trusting in His loving control. There are many things that I do not know about the future, but I do know that God is and will always be my Provider.
As the Apostle Paul says in Romans 8, "If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? Who shall bring any charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written,
"For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered."
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 8:31-39 ESV)
