Questioning God

Have you ever experienced a time when your life was so messed up you wanted to ask God what was going on?  Job did.

Today also my complaint is bitter; my hand is heavy on account of my groaning.  Oh, that I knew where I might find him, hat I might come even to his seat!  I would lay my case before him and fill my mouth with arguments. (Job 23:2-4)

If you read Job 1-4 it is easy to see why he felt that way.  He feared and obeyed God and God had blessed him with great wealth and with ten children.  For a long time he had lived a prosperous and happy life, and then suddenly everything began to go wrong. Read the rest of this entry

Isaac’s faith

Abraham’s faith was tested many times.  The first test that we are told about came when God told him to leave his home in Ur and go to an unknown land.  (It is likely that he faced tests while he was still living in Ur.  If his faith hadn’t previously been strengthened by exercise he wouldn’t have been willing to leave his home at God’s command.)  When he entered the new land God told him he would become the father of many nations and he continued to believe this promise even though it was 25 years before Isaac was born.

His greatest test came after Isaac was born.

After these things God tested Abraham and said to him, “Abraham!”

And he said, “Here I am.”

He said, “Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.”

So Abraham rose early in the morning, saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and his son Isaac. And he cut the wood for the burnt offering and arose and went to the place of which God had told him.
Genesis 22:1-3

Your only son

God tested Abraham.

God tested Abraham and said to him, “Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.” He said, “Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.” So Abraham rose early in the morning, saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and his son Isaac. And he cut the wood for the burnt offering and arose and went to the place of which God had told him.
Genesis 22:1-3

Abraham obeyed but God stopped him from carrying out the sacrifice.

Then Abraham reached out his hand and took the knife to slaughter his son. But the angel of the LORD called to him from heaven and said, “Abraham, Abraham!”

And he said, “Here I am.”

He 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.”

And Abraham lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, behind him was a ram, caught in a thicket by his horns. And Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up as a burnt offering instead of his son.
Genesis 22:10-13

For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. (Exodus 20:11)
