Abraham answered, “God himself will provide Gen 22:8
Story: God tested Abraham, by asking Abraham to sacrifice His only son. Abraham obeyed and took his son to the mountain Lord showed. As the two of them went on together, Isaac spoke up “The fire and wood are here but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?” Abraham answered, “God himself will provide“.
Abraham bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar. Then took the knife to slay his son. But the angel of the Lord called out “Do not lay a hand on the boy. Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your son.
Abraham looked up saw a ram caught by its horns. He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son. So Abraham called that place The Lord Will Provide.
Lesson: Even if it is painful to execute; obedience has tremendous power to change life for ever. How could Abraham tell His son, God will provide when he had no idea at that point on what the Lord plan was. Blindly trusted in the goodness of God. Abraham was ready to sacrifice the most precious thing in His life for the love of God. Have we any time sacrificed anything of our loving savior.
Prayer: Father Lord, my priorities are not right. Change me Lord that my passion and purpose will be to know the power of your presence. Amen.
