The Trust Test

Jun 26, 2022

Today's Scripture

Genesis 22:12, NKJV
And He said, “Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God…”

Today's Word

Abraham was seventy-five years old when God promised him "to become a great nation," then he believed and stood in faith for twenty-five years before the birth of his son, Isaac. You can imagine how he must have felt many years later when God told him to take Isaac to the top of a mountain and sacrifice him on an altar. Isaac was the fulfillment of Abraham's dream. He didn't understand it, but he was obedient. He passed the trust test. And just as Abraham was about to follow through, God spoke today's Scripture.

There will be times when God asks us to put our dream on the altar. Sometimes the closed doors and the disappointments are simply a test. God wants to see if we'll trust Him when life doesn't make sense. Will you do the right thing when it's hard? When you do as Abraham did and pass the trust test, God will not only give you the desires of your heart, He'll do more than you ask or think.

Prayer for Today

Father, thank You that You are my God and worthy of my unconditional trust. Thank You that when there are things in my life that I don’t understand, times when You ask me to put my dreams on the altar, I’m still going to trust You. I declare that I will pass the trust test. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
