This season of life is super-busy right now, but I hope you find encouragement when I remind you that “God is never out-given”.
Genesis 22 tells a beautiful story of a man’s love and reverence for God. Abraham loved God even more than the things he was believing God for. In a life-defining moment, Abraham was willing to make an agonizing sacrifice to God. An in the final moments of this sacrifice, God stops Abraham, convinced of Abraham’s devotion. It says in verse 13 that “…Abraham lifted his eyes and looked, and there behind him was a ram”.
God’s provision is always found when you “lift your eyes”. Lift your eyes off the problem. Lift your eyes off the pain and disappointment. Lift your eyes even off the sacrifice you are offering God. Lift your eyes and expect to see the provision God has long prepared for you, as He reminds you- once again- that He is never out-given.
The pressure you feel right now is quite possibly a life-defining moment in the making. “Lift Your Eyes!”
