“And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.” – Genesis 22:13
Sometimes life throws us a curve. We don’t see it coming, but it hits us right smack in the face. I don’t know what your problem is today, but God does and He already knows the answer.
Abraham thought he had a problem when he was going up to sacrifice Isaac. He didn’t know how his need was going to be met. But the moment Abraham started up one side of that mountain with Isaac, on the other side, a ram started up—the ram that was going to be the substitute for Isaac.
Abraham never saw the ram, but God saw it. God sent it. God planned for the substitutionary sacrifice long in advance. And I want to tell you, God knows a way for you. God has a plan for you—a plan for all of us.
God’s children are never to panic. Worry is an insult to the Sovereign Almighty God. Trust God—He already knows.
“do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:5–7
The next life throws you a curve that catches you off guard, don’t forget that God is never caught off guard. He knew what was going to happen all along and for whatever reason, He allowed it.
“casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7
