A time of prayer ensued after Barbara and I decided to go. Then, just as we were ready to call the realtor and put our house up for sale – to actually do what the Lord was calling us to do – He opened our mind to remember father Abraham and Isaac. God tested Abraham to take his only son, Isaac, and offer him as a sacrifice. He bound his son, placed him on the altar, and took the knife to kill his son. But the angel of the Lord stopped him from killing the boy and said, “Now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son from me.” (Genesis 22)
Barbara and I looked at each other and realized together that what the Lord has always wanted from us is still what He wants today. More than anything, God wants to know that we “fear” Him and will hold nothing back from following His will for our lives. That’s the most difficult decision. The test, though, is whether we’re willing to act on the decision. It’s not until God knows that you will act, that He will give you His blessing. And I am thankful to say today that Barbara and I are blessed!
