Genesis 22:8

God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering.

The aging father. His only son. A 3-day arduous journey. At the end of the journey, awaits the heart-wrenching sacrifice. The servants who were left at the bottom of Mount Moriah were probably wondering, “But what about the lamb for the burnt offering?”, but they were afraid to ask the patriarch. And finally the innocent son asks that one question the father was afraid to answer. Yet from his raging heart, comes these words of faith – God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering. And He did then at Mount Moriah. And He did again at Calvary.

When the struggles of this life are too much for you to bear, look at the Calvary. When you are pressed from all directions and you have nowhere to turn, turn to the Cross. When you are not able to come to the LORD because of your sins, look at Jesus Christ, Him crucified. When you are in need of true love, look at God our Father, Who loved us so much, He gave up His only Son for us. HE is Jehovah Jireh – the LORD Who provides.
