Gen 22:7-8 NHEB 7 Isaac spoke to Abraham his father, and said, “My father?” He said, “Here I am, my son.” He said, “Here is the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?” 8 Abraham said, “God will provide himself the lamb for a burnt offering, my son.” So they both went together.
It’s a beautiful Monday and we rejoice in our God, for He is good. He is speaking to us. He never leaves us unattended.
Here we see a precise word from the conversation between Father and son. The question was obvious; I have seen the fire; we have the wood. Where is the key thing? I have received the word, i have seen or can see the signs but where is the key thing? You may ask the same question. Where is my spouse? Who is the one for me? When will it happen?
God is saying to you now, I will provide for myself…….. It is for my glory. Period! I can and will provide for myself. It is not about you, but about God and His glory. Be assured that God will provide your needs according to His riches.
