Abraham learned Who God is by what he went through. He learned that God is the answer. But just like Abraham, we have to be given a problem so that we can discover all that God is. So to Abraham, God became Jehovah-Jireh. And if we go through the problem that we are given, what we’ll find is that God reveals His name to us according to what we need.
