TIMES OF TESTING
Genesis 22:1 Some time later God tested Abraham.”Here I am, he replied.” (Read Chapter 22) (V.2) Then God said, ” Take your son, your only son, Isaac, whom you love, and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains I will show you.”
As Christians we can all be sure that we will be tested by God.
Jesus said, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
Abraham knew God. He had walked with Him many times and had learned to trust him completely. Abraham knew, in his heart, that when told by God to sacrifice his only son, that God would provide a way, where there seemed to be no way. God did provide a ram; this was a type and shadow of Jesus, God’s only Son, that was sacrificed for us.
Read Job Chapter 1: Job was allowed by God to be tested to the max. Job’s heart remained strong for God; Job trusted Him.
