Blessing Comes after Obedience
Read: GENESIS 22:15-18
This moment in Abraham’s journey brings me delight and assurance of God’s goodness. Abraham does not operate based off of a five to ten year plan; he doesn’t know the details of what’s to come. He chooses to simply take the next step, following God’s lead.
Abraham moves in obedience and God is quick to send a reminder of the blessing that is to come. This blessing will not only benefit Abraham, but it will bless the entire world and God will be glorified.
Recall a time when God was inviting you to act in obedience without knowing all the details. Was this moment in your journey a simple decision? Was it difficult? What about the outcome? Did you notice a sense of confirmation once you followed through in obedience? Were other people blessed by your obedience?
Giver of every good gift, instill in us a desire to obey your prompting through both the mundane and the grand. May our obedience bear fruit for generations to come. AMEN.
