Genesis 22:12 “…‘I know now how devoted you are to God, since you did not withhold from me your own beloved son.’”
How much do you love God? Would you give up anything for Him? Abraham was asked to give his only son, a most cherished and beloved part of his life. He said “yes” to God.
The response from God is always the same. Blessings! When we die to what is important to us, God takes over our life. And, because we put Him first, the fruits of the Holy Spirit, joy, peace, and love, take over.
I pray that I put You first Lord, before anything else in my life. I praise You for Your everlasting love.
What are you willing to give up for the Lord? Are you ready to commit your whole life, your marriage, your family members, your work, and your daily life? Are you ready to offer it up to God as your sacrifice? Now, think about how God offered up His son, Jesus Christ. Reflect! Ask the Lord to help you examine your sins. Look deep into your heart and find your burdens, then, give them to God.
