Abraham and Isaac

Hebrews 11:1-16, Genesis 22:1-19

After God spoke to Abraham, what was it that enabled him to get up one morning and head towards the land of Moriah to offer his son Isaac as a burnt offering???   The scripture tells us that God was testing Abraham.  When you are tested, what is it that precedes the test; preparation.

Abraham's Preparation:

  • At age 75 he was told to leave his home area to a land that I will show you and he obeyed.

  • Abraham did not doubt God promise regarding land and when he decided that he and his nephew Lot needed to separate he gave Lot the choice and he took what was left.

  • Abraham somewhere along in his journey of life, by faith, believed God can raise people from the dead.  Hebrews 11:19

Don't Limit God by what you do.
