◄ Genesis 22:13 ►
And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold BEHIND him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.
Note that the ram was BEHIND him not in front of him, and he maybe did not see it because he had been looking down!
As long as you look up, there will always be a ram in the bush, which humanly speaking may be the most unlikely of places, but you let him worry about that!
* Yes, has not God said,
“Fear not, for I am with you;
I will help you.
Yea, I will strengthen you.
Yea, I will uphold you
By My mighty right hand”?
There is hope!
Do not look down;
Do not despair.
Square your shoulders; lift your chin up high,
Knowing that He is your glory and the One who lifts your head,
Knowing that He will never fail you, nor forsake you,
Knowing that He is with you, and you will win–
