Faith Like Abraham’s
By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, of whom it was said, “In Isaac your seed shall be called,” concluding that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead, from which he also received him in a figurative sense.
Hebrews 11:17-19 King James Version
THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY'S VERSE...
Talk about faith! When God asked Abraham to give his only son as a sacrifice, the one in whom he had been told He would use to make Abraham the father of many nations, Abraham didn't hesitate. He believed in faith that God was able to raise him back up from the dead if need be. Abraham's faith and obedience was all God wanted, so God stayed his hand from harming Isaac and provided Abraham with a ram to complete the sacrifice. But it was Abraham's undoubting faith and obedience that moved God. It also opened the door for God Himself to then offer His only Son (Jesus) as a sacrifice for ALL mankind. Abraham’s faith made a way for God to use His only Son as a sacrifice for us, for all of humanity. Our Faith is what opens the way for God to bless us! Are you full of that kind of faith and would you be as obedient as Abraham was?
Father God, thank You for not asking us to do that which we cannot in our own strength do, but for only asking that we have faith in You. You didn't ask Abraham to do anything that You weren't willing to do Yourself. Thank You, that You did in fact give Your only Son that I (and the rest of the world) might be saved. That through His blood and our faith in Him we might have life and life more abundantly. In Jesus' name, Father, I pray.
