Wednesday’s Word – 18 October

“Abraham built an altar there….and called that place, ‘The Lord will provide.'”  Genesis 22: 9,14.

 

Abraham builds an altar.  Stone upon stone that becomes a place he will never forget.

It is a moment for him where God interrupts his imagination and startles him with possibility and provision.

I remember reading in an unpublished journal, a phrase someone had sketched in the margins:  Sometimes the darkest roads lead to the brightest places.

It was that way for Abraham.  With Christ, it is that day, everyday, with us.  Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will not fear.

Let us pray:  Thank you God, thank you that you fill my life with hope, even when in the world and in my heart there seems to be little.   I look to you, provider, life-giver, God of hope.  In Jesus name.  Amen.
