Yesterday, God tested Abraham’s faith. It is an uncomfortable and painful story, but it had a happy ending. I’ve often wondered how Isaac felt afterwards. Did it change his relationship with his father? Did Abraham explain everything on the way back home? What happened when Sarah found out? Let’s continue reading about Abraham’s journey in Genesis chapter 23.
- In a time of deep sadness, Abraham was welcomed as a friend among those who occupied the land God promised him. How do you see God’s hand at work in this situation?
- Think back to a time when someone showed you favor during a season of deep sorrow. Where can you see God’s hand in that situation? How did you feel?
- Use the next few minutes to thank God for his lovingkindness in dark places, for his bountiful provision and faithfulness throughout your life, and for those things that we might not understand in our lifetime, but how eternal significance.
