Read Genesis 22
Ahhhh – this is a hard to read story.
- What do you discover about Abraham in this chapter?
- Moriah would be a three day journey. Isaac was old enough to carry wood for the fire and ask questions (and old enough to run away when he realized that he was the sacrifice). What can you see in his character during this scene?
- In verse 8 the Hebrew word for “will provide” is raah which literally means “to see to” or “to attend to”. From Hebrews 11:17-19, what can we speculate was going on in Abraham’s head?
- Where do you need God to provide today? Do you believe that He will provide? What has grown this faith in you?
