Always a step ahead

Friday, 15th December

Genesis 22:13-15

“Then Abraham lifted his eyes and looked, and there behind him was a ram caught in a thicket by its horns. So Abraham went and took the ram, and offered it up for a burnt offering instead of his son. And Abraham called the name of the place, The- LORD -Will-Provide; as it is said to this day, “In the Mount of the LORD it shall be provided.” Then the Angel of the LORD called to Abraham a second time out of heaven,”

Our scripture for today highlights a peculiar aspect of God’s nature – He is always a step ahead of you any time He gives you an instruction.  God does not go ahead of you for nothing. There is always supernatural provision waiting for you at the end of each instruction. Abraham’s experience with the ram caught up in the thicket is a classic example of God’s supernatural provision that awaits anyone who obeys His instructions.

The ram caught in the thicket was not a happenstance, but a response to Abraham’s obedience to God’s irrational instructions (Genesis 22:2-3) and more importantly, Abraham’s unshakable trust in God’s faithfulness. For Elijah, it was not different. His confidence was on the infallible nature of God and His word. The Ravens did not miss a day of supply to Elijah while he stayed at the Brook Cherith (see 1Kings 17:1-6).

Beloved, do you know God is consistent in His nature, and whatever He did for anyone who obeyed His instruction awaits you too? That means pleasant surprises of supernatural provisions are about to be displayed in your business. So don’t hesitate to give God your obedience even when it’s most inconvenient to do so. One “ram caught up in the thicket” experience will change your financial story.

Don’t allow fear inspired by ignorance deny you the opportunity of experiencing your own “Raven express supplies”. Remember, when God moves a step ahead of you, it is always independent of the prevailing situation in any location. If the famine situation did not stop the “Raven express supplies” to Elijah, likewise the backlog of unpaid salaries will not stop your supplies. It is beyond your logic. Do you know you are next in line to demonstrate the reality of trusting and obeying God? The Lord is waiting to express it through you.

Prayer
Lord, help me to complete my transactions of obedience towards your instructions to me.
