Genesis 20-22, John 8
I just wonder what Isaac was thinking and feeling. His own father was going to sacrifice him
Also I think about the women who committed one of the ultimate sins. Yet God showed mercy. That gives me hope
The Genesis chapters reveal that God knows truly what is in our hearts (20:6) and tests our faith to ensure that we are obedient (22:1). Once he knows our hearts are pure and our trust is unshakable, he PROVIDES! He has unfathomable plans and abilities, we need to open our hearts and obey our great God!
In John 8, God’s word is showing us the light believers experience and the darkness of unbelievers. My favorite verse is 35, “A slave is not a permanent member of the the family, but a son is part of the family forever.” This shows the redemption and mercy we are able to receive as imperfect sinners. We do not need to be tied to our sins. By walking in fellowship with Jesus, we are accepted as members of the family, not slaves to our sins. Such a powerful image.
6….I know that in the integrity of your heart you have done this, and I also kept you from sinning against Me; therefore I did not let you touch her” God knows my heart, He kept Abimelech from sinning against Him b/c of his integrity.
33… the name of the Lord, the Everlasting God.
17…God has heard the voice of the lad where he is. He knows where I am!
20God was with the lad, and he grew; be with my grands as they grow
18‘In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.” Obedience is important
Jesus “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.” Not walking in darkness as I follow Him!
Jesus “unless you believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.” I believe!
Jesus “And He who sent Me is with Me; He has not left Me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to Him.” Love the picture of the Son’s relationship with His Father.
Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” Continue in My word; know the truth; freedom
Jesus “He who is of God hears the words of God; I’m listening God…
Jesus “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.” Those two words…Powerful!
“Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” John 8:7
To me as I was reading, that was one of the most powerful sentences I have read thus far in this challenge. It really spoke to me.
it’s so beautiful to know that the lord knows when to provide for us. he knows us better than we know ourselves, and he is our ultimate supporter. the lord will hold our hand through any battle and he is our tool for life. isn’t it amazing how when the lord realized the abraham was truly fearing him, he provided him and gave him peace. the lord works in powerful ways, friends!!! ❤️❤️
