OBEDIENCE IS KEY
Gen 22:2- "Then He said, take now 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."
Faith is a key component of our christian work and walk with God. Its what gives us the ability to appropriate what belongs to us from the throne of grace. But, today I want us to talk about obedience. Your faith is anchored on your ability to obey and do that which God is asking you to do. To obey is to be faithful. God attach a lot of importance to the issue of obedience, until you pass the test of obedience, you are not qualified to be called faithful. Abraham is called the father of faith, but have you taken time to find out what qualified him to be called so? Time and time again, God will always test and qualify his people with their ability to obey His instructions.
What will qualify you for your breakthrough is your ability to obey God no matter how seemingly difficult the instruction looks like. Abraham took his son, his only son, whom he loves to be sacrificed as God as instructed. He obeyed God without any question and off he went.
Friend, the tougher the instruction, the greater the blessing God is about to unleash on you. The ram was already waiting for Abraham. Research says that a Ram can not climb an height as high as mount Moriah. This goes to show that every step you take in obedience, the Ram is waiting for you at the top. When you obey the seemingly impossible instruction, God is ready to bless you with what the world will call impossible blessing. When you radically obey, God will radically bless you in return.
Pray with me: Father grant me the grace for obedience.
