Theme of Week – Celebrating God’s Character and Provision
Daily Theme – He is Provider
Scripture – Genesis 22:9-14
We must learn to trust the Lord to be our Provider, even when our situation seems dire and we don’t understand what God is doing.
In Genesis 22:9-14 God asks Abraham to sacrifice his only son as an offering. – How could God ask such a thing from Abraham? Why would He require such an act? – God wants to see if we are willing to obey. He will test us to see where we have placed our faith. Are we completely surrendered or are we still holding onto something that is taking our attention away from Him?
Before they arrived at the place where God told them to go, Isaac had a question. “We have the wood and the fire, but where is the lamb for the sacrifice?” Abraham’s response was “God will provide a lamb, my son.” And. He. Did!
We now know that Jesus was that ultimate lamb slain for us. He paid the price for which we could never repay. Thank God for providing what we need in His exact timing.
