Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: “Al-Rahmaan is the Owner of vast mercy, because the fa’laan form in Arabic indicates vastness and abundance, as it is said rajal ghadbaan (a very angry man) when he is filled with anger.
Al-Raheem is a name which refers to the action, as the fa’eel form refers to the doer of an action. So the phrase al-Rahmaan al-Raheem indicates that the mercy of Allaah is vast, as is understood from the name al-Rahmaan, and that it encompasses His creation, as is understood from the name al-Raheem. This is what some of them meant when they said that al-Rahmaan refers to mercy in a general sense and al-Raheem refers to mercy that is specifically for the believers. But what we have mentioned is more accurate.” From Sharh al-‘Aqeedah al-Waasitiyyah, 1/22
Jehovah Jireh, Our Provider: A Trip Report from Honduras (4/4)
JEHOVAH JIREH, OUR PROVIDER
We as a team experienced the Lord’s provision personally as well. The Lord gave us HIS words to share during the women’s conferences, not early, not late, but right on time. He provided strength to teach and minister through sickness. He gave deep rest—physically as well as emotionally in the deep community of Pastor Mario’s family.
As we step out in obedience, the Lord fills in our lack with His richness. As the Lord said to Paul, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9).
The Lord is faithful in the big things and in the small things to us here in the U.S., and to our brothers and sisters in Honduras and around the world. He IS in control. And He IS working. Jesus teaches us in Matthew 6:34, ‘Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
Oh, and the gifts to the missionaries? Our costs were about half what we had budgeted for. So the blessing to the missionaries was more than we could have hoped.
“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3:20
