MY GRANDMOTHER'S FRYING PAN
 
My grandmother on my mother’s side died the year before I was born so I never had a chance to meet her. I only had the stories that my mother told me about her. One such story was about a frying pan.
 
In the early part of the 20th century (1900’s My mother was born in 1908)) most people cooked with cast iron. Steel pots and pans were not yet used. The same was true in my mother’s home. My grandmother had a large cast iron frying pan that had been used for years and had become “well-seasoned.” This meant that it had years of grease and oil built into it which made the cooking easier, and things didn’t stick to the surface like it would on a “new” unseasoned pan. The edges were in a rough built up state, but it still did a good job. My mother was a young girl and decided to “clean” the frying pan. She scrubbed and scrubbed away the build-up, and suddenly a hole developed in the bottom of the pan. You see, the build up had been there for a long time, and eventually it covered the iron underneath it. My mother thought she was doing the right thing by “cleaning” it, but in cleaning it, it caused a hole. 
 
She never told me if she got into trouble, but I suppose she did. It took years for my grandmother to get that pan into its “usable” state, and in one cleaning it was all destroyed. 
 
As I was thinking about that frying pan this morning I thought about lives. Lives that have become well-seasoned over the years. Some of which have layers of hurts and imperfections that the seasoning has covered over. Yet the difference between that frying pan and a life, is that the frying pan needed the layers of seasoning, but a life suffers because of it. When the “well-seasoned” hurts of the past are covered up with layers of “unhealed hurts” it can lead to a hard-bitter surface.   These things don’t surface in an old cast iron pan, but they do in our lives.
 
We need the cleaning agent of Holy Spirit to daily cleanse away those hurts so the layers on top of them don’t turn to bitterness. The hurts that are cleansed cause our lives to become full of hope and give us a future that is full of promise. Perhaps like that old pan we have allowed the hurts to build up. We need to let God cleanse deeply enough to bring life back in those wounded areas.
 
An old fry pan can be replaced, and a new one can be seasoned, but a life can’t be thrown away that easily. Perhaps today is the day or the “season” that you need to let God go deep and get rid of those “build ups”. After all, you’re worth a whole lot more to him than an old cast iron fry pan.

ABRAHAM PART 33
JEHOVAH-JIREH
 
As Abraham and Isaac ascended Mount Moriah, the future site of Jerusalem and Golgotha, Isaac asked his father a very pertinent question. Where was the lamb for the burnt (sin) offering?
 
Abraham, in a statement of faith (Genesis 22:8) replied, “My son, God will provide Himself a lamb…”. God did indeed provide.
 
Abraham named that place Jehovah-Jireh (Genesis 22:14) which means "Jehovah will provide.” This is the only place in the entire Bible where that name is used. It was used in the context of God providing an offering for our sin. In the Mosaic Law, a sin offering was a lamb burnt upon the altar.
 
It was also a prophetic name foreshadowing that “Jehovah will provide” the sin offering 2,000 years later as The Lamb of God, Jesus, is slain on that very same site, Mount Moriah, later called Golgotha (Calvary). God did indeed provide for us His own sacrificial Lamb that we could be redeemed from the curse of sin and eternal separation from Him. 
 
We often sing songs about “Jehovah-Jireh” but in a context that God will provide for all our needs. While it may be true that He is our ultimate resource for all things, it is not the true context of the name. The true context is the provision for our salvation from sin. The “near sacrifice” of Isaac and the “true sacrifice” of Jesus is clear evidence of that.
 
“Jehovah will provide” and "Jehovah has provided” our redemption is the true meaning of “Jehovah-Jireh.”
