We’ll be back-2
Genesis 22:4 “Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.”
Genesis 22:5″ And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship and come again to you.”
Faith simply means taking God at his word, knowing he will not lie, fail or contradict his already spoken word. Man can lie and change his mind, but defintiely not God.
Abraham knew and believed God too well to hold unto the word of God against physical contrary situations. This is one great act of faith that Abraham demonstrated.
Abraham was called the father of faith, not because he was superhuman but simply because he believed God.
Romans 4:17 “(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, [even] God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.”
Abraham, even though had not seen God raise anybody from the dead before, knew God could do it just to fulfil the promise that was made to him.
Beloved, this is the point at which many of us fail in the faith walk. Once we see something that looks a bit contrary to the promise of God, we tremble and lose heart. We quake and forget all what God has said.
Many a times we want to reason out God, figure out everything before we move or act in faith. If it was you and I in the position of Abraham, we probably would want God to tell us to go make the sacrifice, but with the promise that when we get there, we will see a substitute animal tied up, which we will then sacrifice instead of Isaac.
Well beloved, that’s not how faith works. A wise man said even if you can’t see the whole stairway, start climbing all the same; that is the law of faith.
How would Abraham and Isaac come back together? Abraham had no idea, but he knew, “We’ll be back!”
To be continued…
