Living an Obedient Life
In Genesis 22, we read the account of Abraham’s obedience to God. Abraham obeyed God’s calling, even with a most difficult request. Even though Isaac was the son of his old age, the son he loved, Abraham did not challenge God’s command that he offer his son as a sacrifice. God tested Abraham, and Abraham proved his faithfulness to Him. God, of course, proved His trustworthiness to Abraham. Abraham trusted God’s provisions. Abraham knew that God was in control and was trustworthy; therefore, he could obey all that God commanded of him. Do our lives reflect that same unquestioning obedience?
Is God the Lord of our lives?
Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for Your faithfulness and Your promise to hear me when I call. Please grant me the faith that You gave Abraham who through his obedience would have slain his own son. Help me to be faithful in following Your will for my life. Keep me focused on You so I trust and depend on You for all things. In Christ’s name I pray. Amen.
Blessings on your stewardship journey!
