The Bible is full of what we can call difficult stories. Some of them don’t make a lot of sense at first. Others seem contrary to what we think should happen.
As we finish up our time this week by talking about Walking By Faith, one such story is breathtaking if we follow it through.
It involves a father trusting God more than his own instincts.
2 Corinthians 5:7 says, “For we live by faith, not by sight.”
In Genesis, we read about Abraham being instructed by the Lord to offer his young son Isaac as a sacrifice.
What?!! Nothing could be more repulsive! Telling a man to kill his son? Why?
Well, we gain a different perspective when we trust God to the end of this story.
Climbing a high mountain, Abraham intends to obey God all the way. As he raises a knife over Isaac, God stops him.
God’s compassion hadn’t taken a vacation. He taught Abraham an important lesson about obeying Him no matter what. In fact, Abraham and Isaac would go on to become two of the greatest men of all time.
Learn to trust God — even if you don’t understand.
Let’s pray. Lord, your ways are mysterious to us, but you always want the best for us. Teach us always to trust you. Amen.
