This evening for worship we re-read the inspiring story of Abraham and Isaac on the alter of sacrifice. For some reason, a new aspect of that thrilling drama jumped out at me this time.
What if Abraham hadn't recognized God's voice? I mean, if you heard a voice telling you to kill your only son, wouldn't you have some questions as to the source? Abraham didn't. Why not? It was because Abraham KNEW the voice of God! He had been in communion with God so much during the course of his life that he was able to recognize immediately what God was asking him to do - even though it seemed totally outrageous!!!
What about you? Do you know the voice of God enough to trust Him - no matter what He says?
