What’s Wrong with You God?!
Then God said (to Abraham): Take your son Isaac, your only one, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah. There offer him up as a burnt offering on one of the heights that I will point out to you.
~ Genesis 22:2
Abraham and Sarah had waited a long time, to the tune of 100 years for their son Isaac to be born. God promised, they believed, then they lost faith, then God delivered (excuse the pun).
Now, God calls Abraham to take his ONLY SON and sacrifice him?! It would be easy to side with Abraham if he chose to disobey God. BUT he doesn’t, he obediently follows the Lord’s instructions.
Tomorrow we will see where that gets him. But for today…
- Has the Lord ever called you to sacrifice or give up something that you thought was a special gift from him? What was it?
- How deeply and radically do you trust the Lord? Where can you grow in this trust? Revisit the conversation you had with him yesterday, ask the Lord to bring you deeper.
- Ask the Lord to help you grow in your trust of Him as Heavenly Father who delivers all that is good to His Children. (Matthew 7:11)
