What a Faith!
Genesis 22:4-5  Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.  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.
Abraham is setting off to obey what God had commanded him and offer up Isaac. What I would like to focus on is Abraham’s statement that they would “come again to you.” God had promised him a son so he just believed God would provide a sacrifice or raise Isaac up. Either way he just trusted God. Our Pastor mentioned in our Wednesday evening service that you didn’t see Daniel praying in the lions den. That provoked my thinking into other places in The Bible where people faced tremendous adversities. When you look at these you don’t find them pleading with or begging God. They just trust Him. I’m not saying not to pray, but when we spend time with God on a daily basis, then when we face these difficult situations we are able to just trust in Him!!
Acts 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
This verse shows us that what God gave Abraham, Noah, 3 Hebrew boys, Daniel and others, He also gave us. He has given us all a measure of faith, we just have to exercise it! No matter what you are facing today, JUST TRUST GOD!! He knows where you are, what you are going thru and what you need! If we will exercise what He has given us then we will have the same peace that these in The Bible did!
