Day 4: Love's Sacrifice


GOD SAID~

“Take your son, your only son, whom you love—Isaac...

Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you” (Genesis 22)

Abraham OBEYED~

YES GOD!

If GOD SAID~

Take your most prized possession & sacrifice it would you say

"YES GOD"?

Your most prized possession~

a person, a habit, an addiction or bitterness, anger, anxiety or despair~

But GOD SAID~

Take your ________ whom or what you love & sacrifice it.

Would you, could you live without it?

GOD'S LOVE LANGUAGE

is not our language

as sometimes we just don't understand it

because it sounds so foreign to us~

Take what I so LOVE and TRUST YOU GOD with it?

And GOD SAID~

YES!

I want all of you

even if it is _____ or ________ or _______.

But we say~

"It is impossible. I don't wanna. I just can't

Because it feels so impossible to live without _______".

But a YES GOD takes a bold leap of FAITH~

to see beyond what our eyes can see & what we feel as

"FAITH is confidence in what we hope for & assurance about what we do not see" (Hebrews 11:1)

FAITH takes the first step~

"BY FAITH" ~

"Abraham, when GOD tested him, offered Isaac as a sacrifice" (Hebrews 11:17)

FAITH always says~

YES GOD

because

FAITH attaches our whole being to GOD

who does speak our

LOVE LANGUAGE

because

HE attached HIS most Precious Possession to a cross~

sacrificing HIS ONE & ONLY SON.

What is your most prized possession that

GOD is asking you to sacrifice

because it detaches you from experiencing

HIS GREATER LOVE

that will provide so much more beyond

what your eyes can see & what you feel?

The moment you & I say

"YES GOD"

HE provides something so much greater~

"Abraham looked up & there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns. He went over & took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son.

 So Abraham called that place The Lord Will Provide" (Genesis 22:13-14)

Because GOD SAID we will say

YES GOD~

To believe the impossible in the midst of your greatest sacrifice that

GOD may be asking you & I to do,

but to do it BY FAITH~

"And without faith it is impossible to please HIM, for whoever would draw near to GOD must believe that HE exists and that HE rewards those who seek HIM" (Hebrews 11:6)

because

LOVE'S GREATEST SACRIFICE

said

YES GOD

on the cross~

"It is finished" (John 19:30)

because JESUS did the impossible to make it possible for us to do the possible in the impossible

"BY FAITH" (watch this short video)
