Simple timer

ok I am installing a
GE 24-Hour In-Wall Basic Timer
Model # 15070
Store SKU # 543382

In my attic to run a outdoor spot light.

Timer wires

has a white red black green wire

Outlet wires

I have an out let to take power from but it only has

White black and ground

I took the white black ground and brought it to the Timer but the timer has a red wire

Thank you for any help on this matter.

Black is power in, your house black. Red is power out, your spot light.
