Genesis 22:12- "God said, 'Do not lay your hand on the boy or do anything to him. For now I know that you fear God, seeing you have not withheld your son, your only son, from me.'"
God gave Abraham an opportunity to put his faith into motion by telling him to sacrifice his only son Isaac. And Abraham was willing to be obedient! Talk about a fast, giving up something important to know God and bring Him glory! This story illustrates a strong level of willingness when it comes to sacrifice. Is there anything too sacred in your life that you would not be willing to give up to seek God? Is there anything that is too valuable, too important, or off limits?
God isn't calling you to give up the life of your kids, but he may be calling you to give up something important in order to know and follow Him.
