Sitting outside in the sunshine today during the noon hour and reading scripture (can you believe this weather in Idaho Falls?) . . .
1. God tells Abraham: “Take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you” (Gen. 22:2).
2. How do you respond to a command like that in which you do not at all understand? Well, here is the section of Proverbs for today’s scripture reading – “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths” (Prov. 3:5-6).
3. Today’s New Testament reading: “Lord, save us! We are perishing!” (Matt. 8:25). But sometimes as the Lord Jesus would answer our cries, He lovingly rebukes us, “Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?” (Matt. 8:26).
There is one thing that we can always be confident about – “The-LORD-Will-Provide” (Gen. 22:14).
The Father’s loving provision to us is both His Son and His Spirit. Glory. We can trust. If there is anyone we can fully trust, it is the LORD, the Everlasting God.
