Good morning.


Imagine how Abraham felt when God said, “Take your son, your only son, whom you love—Isaac—and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you.” (Genesis 22:2) As we read the account of Abraham's response,  it is important to note what was not done


• Abraham did not bargain with God to spare Isaac. We read that early the next morning, Abraham got to work to carry out what God said he must do.


• Abraham did not delay the process, hoping the Lord would change His mind. Abraham prepared the altar, bound his son, and who wielded the knife. Abraham trusted God, so much so, that he was willing to go through with the unthinkable.


It’s not until the actual act of sacrifice had begun, when the angel called out to him and a ram was provided, that Abraham knew relief. Through both what he did and what he didn't do, Abraham teaches us something about obedience as well as the loving nature of our God.


When God asks us to do the impossible, trust Him and know that He is with us every step of the way.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne.
