Genesis 22:13-14 "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.

Once in a while, our dog Benny will find himself stuck halfway inside the rung of our kitchen counter stool. We have to go and get him unstuck. Then we find him stuck halfway under the laundry room bench. Then the kitchen chair. And we have to go and get him unstuck. He's something else!
In Genesis 22:13, it says, the ram was "caught in a thicket by his horns". Most rams get caught in a thicket by their fur and are cut by the thorns. But this ram had to be a without blemish or cuts of any kind to qualify as a perfect sacrifice. It was a type of our Lord Jesus Christ, Hallelujah. As Abraham went up the mountain in obedience to God's instruction, a "ram" was going up the other side of the mountain. Glory to God!
Here's a word from the Lord for you today. There's a "ram in the thicket" for you in your situation. Whatever your need is today, be encouraged, there is a "ram" going up the other side of the mountain for you. Jesus is called "the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world". That means, before you had a problem, God had the answer. Before you had a question, God had the answer. Before you had a diagnosis, God already provided the healing! So get up and dance and shout! Lift up your eyes. God provided His Son, His only Son, for you.
