Genesis 22:1–14

After decades of trusting God for an heir, Abraham finally realized his dream when Isaac was born. But then, God issued a shocking command to Abraham: “Go and sacrifice [Isaac] as a burnt offering on one of the mountains, which I will show you” (Genesis 22:2). It was the ultimate test of faith for Abraham and set the scene for an unforgettable, epochal event!

In his message, Chuck Swindoll encourages us that God never puts us through a test without a purpose. And when we release our treasures into God’s hands and trust Him with total abandonment, God will provide for us. His rewards surpass anything we could imagine!
