Abraham was over 100 years old when Isaac was finally born. Abraham probably thought ‘finally I am blessed.’ Then God asks the unspeakable—sacrifice Isaac. Trusting God, Abraham prepares to do exactly what God asks—take the blessing he received and sacrifice it to God. While I do not believe God will ask us to sacrifice our children like He asked of Abraham, He could very well ask you to give up a blessing in order to follow Him.
Questions for further thought:
1. What might God be asking you to do?
2. What might be sacrificed in order to follow God?
Challenge: Have the faith Abraham had to make the sacrifice and take steps in faith on the path God has for you.
