And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am. And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of. And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him. Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off. And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you. And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together. And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering? And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together. And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood. And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son. And the angel of the Lord called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I. And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me. And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son. And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the Lord it shall be seen.
For us to be Fruitful and Multiply it requires our willingness to sacrifice. The sowing of that which we believe should be as God has ordained is the fuel to endure the process of life, sowing and reaping, that often brings about challenges that requires us to choose and choose to believe. LIVE through ti all with the assurance that even if we do not understand the how of the harvest promised by God we yet know, believe that it will happen. Abraham knew that God promised him through his only son Issac that he who was barren would be Fruitful and Multiply, however, the requirement of life’s journey required of Him to give up the very thing he saw as the source of His harvest, promise. Yet Abraham with the challenge of his life to believe God and His promise told His servants that even though we are going over to sacrifice, the lad, my promise, and I will return. Abraham did not know the how but He knew the God of the how. LIVE, despite and in spite of it all, God’s Word is true and no matter what God will make a way to bring to pass the fuel, the promise of your faith. Believe by having the willingness to choose to believe and act on that belief for which God has promised you to life and life more abundantly in all things and it will cause you to be Fruitful and Multiply. Your willingness to choose to believe is your act of Worship, the acknowledgment that God is the Lord of life and is in control of everything. It is in your sowing process, choosing and believing, God is honored and glorified and as a result you can be assured that God will cause you to bear fruit and to do the result of your sowing, choosing and sowing, you will be Fruitful and Multiply!
