Notice the joy of Abraham. He doesn’t call his mountain Mt. Sacrifice, Mt. Suffering, or Mt. Blood, Sweat, and Tears. Abraham calls the Mountain “The LORD Provides!” Where God guides, God provides! How do we know? We know Jesus. Jesus is the son of Abraham, the Son of sacrifice!

At times we only rely on Jesus when we think we’re desperate. May you learn to let Him be the Savior of the world in all things.
