Jesus performed many miracles. He provided a financial miracle to meet an important responsibility. Believers in Christ Jesus need to know that God is able. He is the provider, Jehovah Jireh. God showed forth this name of provider with Abraham when he was to sacrifice Isaac, the rightful heir of the promise. Abraham knew strongly of God’s ability and care to provide. God provided a ram in the bush so Isaac was spared death. God tested Abraham and He passed withholding nothing from God.
24 After Jesus and his disciples arrived in Capernaum, the collectors of the two-drachma temple tax came to Peter and asked, “Doesn’t your teacher pay the temple tax?”
27“But so that we may not cause offense, go to the lake and throw out your line. Take the first fish you catch; open its mouth and you will find a four-drachma coin. Take it and give it to them for my tax and yours.” (Matthew 17:24, 27)
12 And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.
13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.
14 And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah Jireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the Lord it shall be seen. Genesis 22:12-14
The greatest miracle remains that Jesus Christ died for the sins of the world! Today is the day to receive the free gift of God’s salvation. Believers already have salvation. Do you?
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
