God will provide!

"And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for burnt offering." Genesis 22:8

Do you ever feel as if you think that you are not going to make it?

Maybe not enough funds for school clothes?

What about rent?

Money for groceries?

Do you need some other needs met?

Abraham was given a test.

God wanted to know how much Abraham loved God.

Abraham was asked to give his dearest possession, his beloved child to God.

Abraham takes the boy up into a mountain and there prepares the altar.

Isaac sees the fire and altar and asks where the animal is that is to be killed.

Isaac yet knows not that he is to be the intended victim.

Abraham answers, "My son, God will provide himself a lamb."

I wonder what was going through Abraham's mind?

What do you think was going through Isaac mind?

Sometimes we must take what is very dear to us and lay it on the altar.

God will provide for us in all of our difficult times if we only trust in Him.

God must be more precious that that thing than we lay on the altar.

When we think that there is nothing else, no other possible way, that is when God shows up and has a substitute.

When we are faithful God will not leave us hanging.

Abraham's faith in God was such that if it meant requiring offering Isaac, then that was the best way possible.

Isaac was dear to Abraham, but God was much more dearer.

This showed Abraham's love for God.

God provides a ram.

The story has a happy ending.

God wants our dearest.

God wants our best.

God will test our faith and love to see if we are willing to give to Him our dearest and best.

Nothing we anyway is our it all comes from Him even our children!

Everything is His!

"But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:19
