picturing advent: days 7 & 8

And then there was Abraham climbing a mountain with his one and only miracle-son, really believing and really needing provision despite some heartbreaking instructions.  But Abraham obeyed and God provided.  At the last minute, but God provided.

God provided for Abraham and God provides for us and our Christmas hope is that God did not spare His Son, either.

God provides.  Christmas lights twinkling, light in darkness, tree like an arrow to Heaven, He is the ladder to eternal life.

May this season of Advent bring us faith, like Abraham because God provides for you and for me.   He provides. 

"Abraham reasoned that God could even raise the dead, and so in a manner of speaking he did receive Isaac back from death."  Hebrews 11:19
