7 Isaac spoke up and said to his father Abraham, “Father?”
“Yes, my son?” Abraham replied.
“The fire and wood are here,” Isaac said, “but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?”
8 Abraham answered, “God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son.” And the two of them went on together.
Beloved have you ever found yourself embarked on a journey of accomplishing all that you have hoped, planned, prayed and even dreamed for; and just when it is in your reach, something grasp your heart and panic sets in and all you can think about is what Is missing?
I want to speak a word into your spirit that Father Abraham spoke to his son, Isaac; God Himself will provide what is missing in every one of your situations, if you would only believe God for it.
Now, I know and agree with the bible scholars (i.e., Adam Clarke, the Holy Bible with commentary) who eloquently stated that, ‘We must not suppose that this was the language merely of faith and obedience. Abraham spoke prophetically, and referred to that Lamb of God which He had provided for Himself, Who in the fullness of time would take away the sin of the world, and of Whom Isaac was a most expressive type.” For Abraham was a prophet (Gen. 20:7). Jesus said Abraham hoped for My day [My incarnation]; and he did see it and was delighted” (John 8:56).
Beloved let us never lose sight of the fact that when God provides the sacrifice, He gets the glory out of our lives. Beloved let us let go of the minor things and believe God for the Major.
Beloved, consider this will you please, if God has not withheld His only begotten son Jesus, but has freely provided Him, as a living sacrifice to pay the penalty for our sins, He will by no means withhold any good thing from them who will diligently seek Him for that which is missing. King David said, “I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.”
