God Will Provide
"So Abraham called that place The LORD Will Provide. And to this day it is said, 'On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided.'" (Genesis 22:14)
Scripture Focus: Genesis 22
Jewish tradition taught us that the sacrifice of Isaac took place on the Feast of Trumpets, and the Akedat Yitzchak (literally the Binding of Isaac) has become the focal point of the synagogue liturgy on this appointed time. After 25 years of waiting, God finally gave Abraham and Sarah a son and then "some time later" He said to Abraham, "Take your son, your only son, Isaac, whom you love, and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains I will tell you about" (Genesis 22:2).
"Where is the lamb for the burnt offering?" Isaac asked his father. Can we even imagine what Abraham must have felt? His beloved Isaac, the child of "promise," his "only son!" But God, who always provides for His people, provided the lamb for a burnt offering so that Isaac would live. Likewise, God provides the Lamb of God - Jesus Christ - as the sin offering so that those who believe in Him may live forever (John 1:29; Mark 10:45). He is Jehovah Jireh, the God who provides.
Insight: He knows what we need before we ask. He has provision ready for us.
