Gen 22:11 & 12, “But the angel of the LORD called out to him from heaven, "Abraham! Abraham!" "Here I am," he replied.

Dear brothers and sisters,

Loving greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Today let us meditate about the divine call of our lord in our lives. Definitely God calls us by our name very specifically and He blesses us all as we respond to His calling in obedience.  We see here twice the angel of the lord called Abraham by his name. First time, the angel of the lord called him to stop him from offering his son as a burnt offering in obedience to God when he tested his obedience because our God is against all human sacrifices as in Gen 22:12, "Do not lay a hand on the boy," he said. "Do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son." 

So Abraham offered one ram as a burnt offering in the place of Isaac on that day as in Gen 22:13 & 14, “Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns. He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son. So Abraham called that place The LORD Will Provide. And to this day it is said, "On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided."

 Again the angel of the lord called him by his name to bless him as in Gen 22:15 to 18, “The angel of the LORD called to Abraham from heaven a second time and said, "I swear by myself, declares the LORD, that because you have done this and have not withheld your son, your only son, I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will take possession of the cities of their enemies, and through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me."

 Whenever we obey God with all our heart there will be some special blessings which we can receive from Him. Acts 5:32  We are witnesses of these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him."

 May the lord help us today as we take time to obey God and His commandments with all our strength, heart and mind.  Amen.

 1 Chr 21:19, “So David went up in obedience to the word that Gad had spoken in the name of the LORD.”

2 Chr 31:20 & 21, “This is what Hezekiah did throughout Judah, doing what was good and right and faithful before the LORD his God. In everything that he undertook in the service of God's temple and in obedience to the law and the commands, he sought his God and worked wholeheartedly. And so he prospered.”

Rom 5:19, “For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.”

Rom 6:16, ‘Don't you know that when you offer yourselves to someone to obey him as slaves, you are slaves to the one whom you obey--whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?”

Heb 5:8  Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered

Decision To Make

Prov 6:6 to 8, “Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest.”

Things To Thank God

Psa 12:7, “O LORD, you will keep us safe and protect us from such people forever.”
