Day 170 – Abraham Offered Up Isaac
17By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, 18Of whom it was said, that in Isaac shall thy seed be called: 19Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.
Abraham was so committed to the faithfulness of God; he was sure that God would not deny, or disappoint him. In verse eighteen: ‘of whom it was said, that in Isaac shall thy seed be called’, God had said that through Isaac he would be a father of many nations. The question would have been; how would God fulfil this promise? Verse nineteen goes on to say: ‘Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.’ He was absolutely and utterly certain in his heart that the promise God made would not fail.
Abraham offered up Isaac in faith, he trusted God. He had no doubt about Gods capacity and commitment to him. If you would live your life like that, you will not be afraid of terror or any such thing at any point in your life. As you face your day today be committed to God. Do not waver in his promises, do not change your mind about your commitment to Him. By faith give what it takes to establish the fact that you are a believer in the Lord. If your walk with God is straight, the faithfulness of God to you will be unshaken. May God bless your day and give you peace in Jesus’ name. Amen.
