Who can appreciate God’s asking Abraham to sacrifice Isaac whom God Himself had first given?
Those who apprehend God’s heart make no attempt to cling to God imparted gifts; rather do they desire to rest in God, the Giver of all gifts.
God wills for us to be attached to nothing aside from Him, whether it is man or a thing or even something conferred on us by Himself.
Many Christians are quite disposed to leave ‘Ur of the Chaldees’, but few there be who can see the need to sacrifice on Mount Moriah what God has given.
God wants us to love Him more than our Isaac.
