Gen 22:12 – Complete Trust

Abraham was 100 years old when he had his first child with Sarah. What a gift. However, when God asked Abraham to offer Issac, his precious son, as a sacrifice, Abraham set out to follow God’s command completely. He demonstrated complete trust in God, willing to give up what was most precious to Him as a sacrifice to God. However, God stopped him saying, “Do not lay a hand on the boy,” he said. “Do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son.” (Genesis 22:12). Abraham showed incredible trust in God. What in life is most precious to you? Your family, your career, your possessions, your home? Are there any strings attached to your whole-hearted service to God? If God asks these things of you, are you willing to give them up, trusting entirely in God’s will for your life? Only you can answer in your heart. God needs your 100% trust in every detail of your life. Only then can He direct your path and give you the abundant, eternal life He promises you. Trust him. He loves you and wants what is best for you. Open Bible –, (NIcky B)
