It is inconceivable what Abraham felt while approaching the mountain to give his only son, Isaac as a sacrifice.
We have already seen that Abraham demonstrated utmost faith in God. But after one hundred years of waiting for a son with his wife Sarah (Genesis 21:5), God was asking Abraham to sacrifice the biggest desire of his heart – his son.
On one hand Abraham was confident in his faith and in God’s promises, but as a parent his heart was probably torn to shreds.
Which would he obey …….his parental instincts or his father’s command?
Of course we know that Abraham obeyed his father’s command. His obedience greatly pleased God. In fact it was the reason he was given the oath.
By Myself I have sworn, says the Lord, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son blessing I will bless you…Genesis 22:16-17
What about you? Would you have obeyed and given your Isaac? Would you have sacrificed your biggest dream as Abraham did?
Seeing that Abraham was obedient and self sacrificial he passed God’s test and the fire of God’s faith burned within him. He was overflowing with joy.
If you want to secure God’s promises………this Campaign is for you!!!!!!!
