The days leading up to Easter bring us to reflect much on the sacrifice, death, and resurrection of our Lord. Maybe this is the reason the verse poked at my soul for a few days.

He said, “Take now your son, your only son, whom you love, Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I will tell you.”
(Genesis 22:2, NASB)

We seem to think God is always requiring us to give up things. We form the opinion He may not really want us to enjoy life, that He may want us to live uncomfortable and mundane lives.

But nothing could be further from the truth.

“God never tells us to give up things just for the sake of giving them up, but He tells us to give them up for the sake of the only thing work having, namely, life with Himself. It is a loosening of the bands that hold back our lives.” (Oswald Chambers)

God tested Abraham on this fateful day on Mount Moriah. Would Abraham trust God, believe He would be faithful to His promise to give him descendants as numerous as the stars.



I hope you will join me at Woman to Woman Ministries HERE. Let’s see what we can learn about the heart of our God and the sacrifices He may require of us.
