Day 19: Obedience leads to Provision
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. Genesis 22:13
Abraham was truly obedient to God’s commands. In fact, Abraham was so obedient that he was willing to sacrifice his son upon God’s instruction. Due to Abraham’s obedience, God provided. Right as Abraham was about to sacrifice his son to the Lord, he looked up, and there was a ram in the thicket. God provided the ram for Abraham to sacrifice instead of his son. That ram appeared supernaturally as an alternative sacrifice. God never intended for Abraham to sacrifice his son, but he was simply seeing if Abraham would obey him. Once it was clear that Abraham would obey, God provided a sacrifice supernaturally. Whenever we are obedient to God and make him our source, he will always provide. You should have confidence that your obedience to God will always lead to provision.
Heavenly Father, I thank you for being my source. Help me to be sensitive to your commands. I pray that I would always quickly obey you. I believe that when I obey you, there will always be provision. Just as you provided for Abraham when he obeyed you, I believe that you will provide for me when I obey you. I thank you for supplying all of my needs according to your riches in glory. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
