We will worship and then we will come back to you. – Genesis 22:5
Even though God commanded Abraham to sacrifice his one and only son Isaac, not only did Abraham not question him, he seemed to have an unwavering faith…
Devotion Day 19: “We”
The next day, when Abraham and Isaac set forth onto the mountain with you to servants, he stopped them and said we will be a worship and then we will come back to you, indicating that even though he knew what God had commanded him to do, he had faith that God could still rescue his son.
“Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son.”
God allows our faith to be tested not to discourage us or provoke failure but to strengthen us, stretch us and increase our capacity for faith in the future. Part of the process is designed to refine, or purify, our beliefs.
In fact, Hebrews 11:19 tells us that Abraham trusted God so much during this ordeal that he “reasoned that God could even raise the dead.”
Even in the moments when we seem most alone, God is always with us and always desires for us to be a “we”.
