Why does God seem to wait until the last minute to bring our provision?
Abraham called the name of that place The LORD Will Provide, as it is said to this day, "In the mount of the LORD it will be provided." Genesis 22:14
It was just as Abraham was about to plunge the sacrificial knife into Isaac’s heart that he heard the ram bleating in the bush. Why does God seem to wait until the last minute to bring our provision? The reality is, we must be empty before we will receive His fullness. It wasn’t Isaac that had to die that day, but Abraham—to his own possessions, plans, prospects and perspectives. Most of have to go to the extreme to get to that point; hence, God’s seeming “last minute” provision. But when we receive the fullness of His provision, all we’ve given up seems shabby.
