Daily Manna 26 October 2018 Devotional by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi
TOPIC: When God Needs Your Isaac
TEXT: Genesis 22:1-19
KEY VERSE: “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”
MESSAGE: The reason for trial or test is to show the disposition of the heart; whether it is holy or disobedient.”And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham…” (Genesis 22:1). The test God gave Abraham was not to lure him into sin as Satan does. Abraham’s obedience or otherwise in this situation, would only show the level of his faith in standing with God.
Daily Manna 26 October 2018 Devotional – When God Needs Your Isaac
Neither Abraham nor Isaac, the son to be offered in sacrifice, argued. They both showed absolute obedience and cooperation. The young lad saw the fire and the wood for the offering and wondered where the lamb was and his father answered him in faith that God would provide a lamb for a burnt offering. At the point when Abraham was to slaughter the lad in sacrifice, God provided a substitute for him which was a lamb. This signifies Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, the pascal Lamb that came as our perfect Substitute.
It becomes clear therefore that those who are willing to part with anything for God, shall have it made-up for them with unspeakable blessings. As Abraham passed God’s test, and his obedience proved his faith, we see that obedience is the only way to blessing. Whenever God demands for your “Isaac”, you should not hesitate. You may not need to sacrifice your son to God; but whatever is dear to you is your Isaac. Therefore, whenever God demands for it, you should not hesitate to offer it, and His blessings will manifest in your life.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Obedience begets blessing.
DAILY BIBLE READING: Luke 12-13
