“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
“Abraham reasoned that God could even raise the dead, and so in a manner of speaking he did receive Isaac back from death.” ~ Hebrews 11:19
“As a test of faith, God told Abraham to sacrifice his beloved son. When Abraham obeyed, God stopped him just before he struck Isaac with the knife. This situation is unimaginable—what a picture of complete faith! The Bible says Abraham trusted that God was even able to raise Isaac from the dead (Hebrews 11:19).
Sometimes God asks us to give up something or someone we love. It may be something that isn’t good for us. It may be something good in itself, but God wants us to let go of it. He calls us to do that by faith, trusting that he has his reasons and he is able even to raise the dead in his own time. These are hard moments, and we often don’t understand why they come. But there is a blessing for choosing faith over doubt. God is always wise, always good, always trustworthy, even when we don’t understand why he asks us to let go of something we’re attached to.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Sometimes, offering our “Isaac” to the Lord is essential on the road to full surrender and peace.”
Once again I had to share!
What is your Isaac ?
Are you willing to give it up if God asked you to ?
Do you have faith and trust on the Lord?
Do you honestly believe that if he took it away is was for a higher purpose, besides you going through pain ?
Are you currently in a similar situation ?
I would love to hear all of yours testimonies! Our testimony are so strong and that’s why God encourages us to share them. You never know how powerful your testimony is until you see all the walking miracles surrounding you !
God bless you all!
