iPainting The Lamb And Isaac
Genesis 22:7 (ESV)
7 And Isaac said to his father Abraham, “My father!” And he said, “Here I am, my son.” He said, “Behold, the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?”
The singular word Lamb is first spoken by Isaac in Genesis 22. The chapter before it refers to seven lambs, but the first time the word in Singular form is used, is spoken by Isaac, this excited me. The child God had given Abraham and Sarah, used the word Lamb while asking a question.
It reminds me that Jesus is built for questions, and in this day and age there are a lot of questions. God is not afraid of our questions, He’s the only One with all the answers. Notice though, Isaac didn’t get a complete answer, and Isaac was okay with that because he trusted his Father.
I would encourage you today, if you are a Christian, and you have questions about this time, that’s okay. God invites you to bring your questions to Him. Some He will answer right away, and others He will answer once you get to the destination, but that’s okay. He is worthy to be trusted, and He will take us all the way home!
