The day is hard. Correction. The season is hard. Hard enough that it is tempting to doubt and fall into despair. But You, Lord, are my refuge and strength. You are my help in times of trouble. I don’t understand, but I don’t need to understand. I need to believe that Your ways and thoughts are higher than mine and that you love me.
Give me eyes that see beyond now. Give me feet that walk the hard road of obedience. Give me a heart in beat with Yours. Give me the faith to believe that my ram is coming.
“It had to have been the darkest day of Abraham’s life as he trudged up the mountain, with firewood strapped to his son’s back. Every step took Abraham closer to what he believed to be the sad ending of a hopeless situation – the death of his son. Yet in spite of his sorrow, Abraham trusted God. His heart wasn’t soaring with joy. He wasn’t dancing up the mountain. But he put one foot in front of the other. Walking through the darkness of the situation; obeying His God’s commands.
Unbeknownst to Abraham, something else was walking up that mountain. Quietly. Out of sight. On the other side of the mountain. Something else was putting one foot in front of the other. Only Abraham couldn’t see it.
For every step Abraham took, a ram on the other side of the mountain took a step.”

My ram is coming. So is yours. We cannot see it, but with every heartbeat, believe that God’s response to your need is climbing up the other side of the mountain. You will meet at the peak where you will fall to your knees worshipping with Abraham at the place named, The Lord Will Provide.
