Isaac had seen his father Abraham offer sacrifices to Jehovah many times and when they left home 3 days ago, he told him that they were going to offer sacrifices on a mountain in Moriah.
He had thought the lamb offering would be picked up along the way but now they were close to the top of the mountain and he still didn't see any lamb. He decided to ask; "Daddy, where is the lamb for the sacrifice? " Abraham replied " God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son.”
When they got to the top of the mountain, they prepared the altar for the sacrifice and his father Abraham then asked him to lie down as though he was the lamb, he was first of all scared when he saw the knife but he knew this man loved him too much to hurt him so he trusted him.
Just when he was beginning to panic because he saw his father raise the knife, he heard the bleating of a lamb at the back of his head; God had indeed provided himself a lamb for the burnt offering.
Beloved, have you noticed that when people say things like "God will do it, God will sort it out ". Many people think it's because the person has lost hope and he/she doesn't know what to do about the situation.
What you don't know is that one of the most powerful statements you can ever make is to say "God will do it, God will sort it out, God is in control " when you put God's name over a matter, you are calling on the most powerful force in the world; you are calling on the power that created the earth in 7 days, you are calling on the power that raised Jesus from the dead, you are calling on the power that put breath in your lungs.
Whenever someone tells you "God will do it, God will sort it out, God is in control ", be excited because the situation will be sorted out, you can take the word to the bank and when someone says "I leave it for God, God will judge you" be very afraid because God will indeed judge and He is a just God.
