I have been thinking a lot about faith recently. I know that I have a lot to learn about faith.
My faith needs strengthened. My faith is not strong enough that I would be wiling to sacrifice my only child as an act of obedience to God. I am encouraged to know that Abraham took many steps of faith before he got to that major act of faith. He had been relying on God for years.
I am also intrigued that Abraham honestly thought that God would raise Isaac from the dead.
"Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure." Hebrews 11:19
What would make him think that God would raise Isaac because a resurrection had not happened before? Faith.
I have had this song going through my head over the last week or so. This is my prayer.
"If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself."
2 Timothy 2:13
