And Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to slay his son. But the Angel of the LORD called to him from heaven and said, "Abraham, Abraham!" So he said, "Here I am." And He said, "Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me" (Genesis 22:10-12)

SACRIFICE WHAT WE HAVE TO OBTAIN WHAT GOD HAS
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” (13-14)
Abraham offered “Isaac,” God provided a “Ram”
