It has been said that the true test of faith is the ability to trust in God when circumstances in life are at their worst. It is during these times that we are forced to examine what we really believe: about who God is – and what he promises in His Word. The truth is this: when we are tested and when life appears to be bleak, dark and hopeless, it is during these times when we truly must walk in faith.
This Sunday we will be looking at Genesis 22:1-14 in the testing of Abraham’s faith as he is asked to sacrifice his one and only son. The hope that we can draw from his example is that when we are tested, God is faithful and He provides for our every need. It is through trials that our faith is strengthened, and it is through faith that we are saved in the provision that God has given in Jesus Christ our Savior.
