“Where is the Lamb?”

Re:Verse reading–Genesis 22:1-19 (day four)

Abraham…who was he?  A prophet, one who feared God, promised to be the Father of a nation, and eventually, a Hall of Faither in Hebrews 11.  From our earliest encounter with Abraham, he was hearing the voice of the Lord, obeying the voice of the Lord, and maturing in his relationship with God as he walked with God in obedience.  Abraham’s fear of the Lord had been developed over time.  When God first promised to send Abraham a child through Sarah, it was 25 years until it was fulfilled.  All the while, Abraham’s character was being built.  In chapter 22, when God gave the command to sacrifice Isaac on a mountain…Abraham knew enough about God and trusted His power to raise even from the dead.  He did not have the crisis of belief that we would expect if the command had come out of the blue.

When we face crisis in our lives, we need a history of walking with the Lord to prepare us for the time of need.  Instead of asking, “Where is the lamb?”, we can know that obedience brings blessing.  God will rescue us in our moment of need.

One thought on ““Where is the Lamb?””

  1. Through Abraham’s examples, we can be assured that obedience will bring blessings but it requires us to wait on Him.

    The story of Abraham’s life teaches us that obedience is essential. When we place our trust in God and wait upon His timing, He will always prove faithful to His believers.

    Disobedience always comes with a cost whether it is in a spiritual context, personal or organizational context. Learning from His Word and conducting our lives in accordance to His Word surely will please Him. God has always proved faithful to His believers so it is worth to obey and to wait upon His timing.
