In my early morning prayer between 3.30 and 4AM between lull of sleep and wakefulness I was suddenly up and alert looking at a vision of a ram caught in a thicket.What struck me about the Ram was the golden horn which just really caught my attention.I finished my prayer and as I went back to sleep I was wondering what I had seen.I told my mother casually when she woke up and I sent a whattsaap message to my sister.I knew I had to go back to my bible to find the context.I had my session of bible reading ,my morning quiet time ,and I got ready for work.I found the pastor's wife standing outside my gate.She wanted some time in the afternoon to speak to me about a young man who needed some help with further studies in biblical mandate.
He was someone known to the pastor's wife from the neighbouring state and was looking for sponsor for the last bit of push towards doing doctrate studies .
He came in the afternoon.By God's grace I could help him.
I was still trying to unroll the mystery of the ram in the thicket with a golden horn/
What I concluded was ,Abraham when he was about to sacrifice Isaac in obedience to the Lord is stopped by the angel and the Lord provides the Ram in a thicket.Abraham names the place Jevohah Jireh-meaning -the Lord will provide,
The golden horn is depicted in the bible in the alter of incense which I understand Aaron was to light night and day and offer sacrifice once a year and depicts the power in the prayer of his saints.
1.Our God reigns.
2.He hears the prayers of his saints.
3.What a privellage and honour it is to be a part of what our master and the Lord .Jesus is doing.
