Abraham and Isaac

Today I am going to write about Abraham and Isaac. The story of how God told Abraham to take his son, his only son Isaac up to Mount Moriah and offer him there as a burnt offering. Abraham got wood together and rode until they saw Mount Moriah. Abraham tied wood around Isaac's back and told the servants to stay there with the donkey. So, he tied wood to Isaac's back and he was wondering what his father was doing to him because they always take a lamb for the burnt offering. He was like father, father where is the lamb?? They went walking until they got to Mount Moriah and then Abraham for the alter ready and put Isaac on top of the alter. He had his pan with his fire in hand and his knife in the other. He was just about to put his hand down with the knife in it but he heard an angel of the Lord speaking to him. God was testing Abraham and he passed. And now that his son was spared he saw a ram and was stuck in the bushes. He got the ram and put it on the alter and used it as a burnt offering. I just think of that story and how faithful Abraham was. We are never that faithful. We need to purpose to be more faithful. Let's work on it together. I hope this blesses you as it blessed me. Have a wonderful day.

In Christ,
