Genesis 22:1-2, 9, And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am. 2 And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of. … 9 And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.
In Genesis chapter 22, we have the story of Abraham laying his son, the promised child, on the altar. His willingness to SURRENDER and SACRIFICE that which he loved resulted in the blessing of God!
If we are going to continue to GO FORWARD FOR CHRIST AND THE CAUSE OF CHRIST, there will no doubt be many times that God asks us to lay SOMEONE or SOMETHING on the altar. At times, as in Abraham’s case, GOD will give it back, many times, He will not. That’s entirely His call!
Are there people, plans, pleasures, possessions, preferences, and positions that God is calling you to bring to your “Mount Moriah?” If so, leave it, or them, on the altar and let it go!
Let go and let God!!!
