Too Good to not be Trusted
Like Abraham, we must choose to trust in the Lord with all of our heart and lean not on our own understanding and reasoning. We also can trust God to provide for us everything we need exactly when we need it. We can fully surrender our lives to Him and lay the pieces of our lives upon the altar in worship and devotion to Him. He always provides for us exactly what we need at the exact time we need it, when we trust Him and rely on Him fully.
The enemy of our soul will try to entice us and convince us that we cannot trust God and that we must take matters into our own hands and do what is right in our own sight. Yet God has proven Himself over again and again that He is faithful and He is the God who provides and meets our every need when we place our trust and reliance fully upon Him. So don’t fall for the lies of the enemy.
Everything that Abraham walked through with Isaac on Mount Moriah was a foreshadowing of what God would do through His own Son, Jesus. God never intended for Abraham to thrust a sword through his son Isaac. No way. God simply required Abraham to place his son Isaac on the altar and give him over to God because God would use Isaac to bring forth the Messiah many generations later. This walk of faith to Mount Moriah with Isaac was a test of faith and the call of God to fully obey and trust the Lord. Abraham was required to give his son, his only son to God to fulfill God‘s purpose for all of humanity. This sacrifice seemed too great; yet Abraham knew that God was too good, not to be trusted.
When Abraham bound Isaac and placed him on top of the wood it was simply a foreshadowing of what God the father would do through His son, Jesus. He would offer His only son to be bound and placed upon a wooden cross as the sacrifice for the sins of the world so that all humanity could be set free from the power of Satan and hell. Isaac willingly went along with his father trusting that his father would only do what was best. Jesus willingly and without resistance went to the cross trusting the Father knowing He would only do what was best. There is only one sacrifice for sin and it has already been made through Jesus. We must praise Him continually throughout eternity for what He has done for us.
Our only reasonable response to God’s amazing love for us is to offer our lives up to Him as a pleasing sacrifice. Give Him all the pieces of your life, your heart, and your soul. When you fully surrender to Him, you can fully trust Him to be the Lord Jehovah Jireh. Place your life and everything in your life, upon the altar today. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and He will meet your every need.
