Devotion-2 “Jehovah Jireh”( Genesis 22:14) By Soji Samson, Doha

Abraham never thought he could bring Isaac back from the altar, while going to mount Moriah.  He was going to sacrifice his promised son as per the instruction of God. Many thoughts might have come to his mind like, “my promised child is going to die”. Abraham kept his son on the altar for sacrifice.  His heart was broken.  He was going to slay his own son with his hand.  This sacrifice really shook him that he was sacrificing his promise.  Don’t forget the sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and contrite heart (Psalms 51:17). God gave him the promise that their descendents would be numerous as the stars in the sky and countless as the sand on the seashore.  He had a strong faith in the God who gave him the promise.  Abraham believed that his God could raise the dead, so he would bring Isaac back from death (Heb 11:19).  God was silent through out his journey from home to mount Moriah.  God was silent until the time Abraham reached out his hand and took his knife to slay his promised son.  It was in that hour, he heard the voice of Angel from heaven.

God was testing Abraham.  It happens in our life too.  God is silent in our trials and persecution. We may scream asking God to descend in our troubles. You may not get any answer.  Hold on to your faith. He is testing you and He will appear in the fourth hour.  Desperation was the beginning of God’s power.  Desperate days are the stepping on the path of light.  “God has greater things in store for us, but unless our great things are given away, we can't receive our greater things. Give big and you'll receive bigger!”  Israelmore Ayivor
