READ: Genesis 22:1-18

Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.

Psalm 62:8


Abraham reached this crossroad when the Lord told him to do what was traditionally evil. The Lord asked him to murder his son. The tree of the knowledge of good and evil would most assuredly tell you that it is a bad thing to kill your son! Traditionally , it is an evil thing to kill but it was in obeying this command that. Abraham stayed close to God and became special to God. God decided to bless Abraham specially.

“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 …” (Genesis 22:2).

Why did God decide to bless Abraham? Was it because Abraham had agreed to commit murder? It was because Abraham was more committed to God than to anything that he knew.

Do you want to stay close to God? Do you want to stay special to God? Then do not depend on what you know to be proven but trust God and follow Him. What I am sharing with you is deep and for people who want to follow God at the highest level.
