As Isaac walked with his father to a place of sacrifice, he was still confused as to what was going to be used for sacrifice. What was missing was a lamp for the burnt offering, as the wood and the fire were already there. When he asked his father about it, Abraham’s response was that God will provide. In the normal case, Abraham would choose the animal to be used for burnt offering, but in this case it was God who had decided what was going to be used for burnt offering. Abraham’s answer was a true prophecy, pointing back to God who had instructed him to do the whole operation.
