Then 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 NIV)
So I’m singing “For your Glory” by Tasha Cobbs and I get to the part where she says “for your glory I will do Anything” and I paused. Because it immediately brought to my mind Abraham. God told him to go sacrifice his ONLY SON as an offering and he went to do it. I really want you to think about that for a second. God told him to go kill his child and he was on his way to do it because GOD said so!!! I was trying to imagine putting myself in his shoes and of course my flesh was like heck no I wouldn’t be able to kill my child!! But the thing is, it was only a test to see if Abraham was really down for him.(my own words not the bible)
Can you imagine how many test we have failed? Think about all the things God have told us to do. The simple things, Like spend time with him. Love your neighbor. Respect your parents. Leave that toxic relationship. Fix your horrible attitude. Leave the job that has you miserable. Start a business. Go out in the community and help someone that can’t help themselves. And we won’t even move our feet. How crazy are we?!?
The place where Abraham was to sacrifice his Son was called “The Lord Will Provide” meaning because he did what God told him to do he was blessed!!! Now I don’t know what’s going on in your life but what I can say is, it’s time to be obedient. Make whatever sacrifice is needed to do Gods will. Whatever he is telling you to do, do it. Will it be easy heck no. But log off the computer, iPhone, and everything else and get in tune with God, he has a plan for your life!! It is so worth it!!! I promise 💓
