You Can Give It All to Him!
There’s a story in the Bible that's really inspiring: when Abraham offered up his son, Isaac, as a sacrifice out of obedience to God …
What a test ... and what a step of faith!
“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.” (the Bible, Hebrews 11:17-19)
Have you ever experienced this? Has God asked you to sacrifice, give something up to Him, that was dear to you?
For Abraham, it was all the more difficult because Isaac was his only son, flesh of his flesh, the child of promise. But Abraham trusted God, and he was right, because at the last second, God provided another sacrifice! It’s also a beautiful image of God’s sacrifice of His only son, Jesus Christ.
You can surrender everything to God in confidence: a deep desire, a particular job, the longing to finally get married ... God is the One Who provides! He wants to see your love for Him and your trust in Him, like He did with Abraham.
Trust Him! God will completely provide for you in whatever you have relinquished to Him in love.
