There was a man that was promised by God that he would have a child. This man was told by God that one day to count his offspring would be as easy as counting the stars in the sky. (Genesis 15:5 (NIV))
Years past and this man, Abraham, was most likely in his 90’s when he had this child. Then when he had this son, God wanted to know that He was first in Abraham’s life so God wanted Abraham to sacrifice his son. At the last minute God provided a ram for the sacrifice.
A lot is going on here but the key point of the story is that with all of the trying, lack of success and all the pain God loves us, makes promises and will keep them.
Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns. He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son. 14 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 22:13-14 (NIV)
The Lord provided for Abraham and He will take care of you. He has promised that if you confess your sins and believe that Jesus has sacrificed His life for your life, you will have an eternity with God.
