Today’s verse

Whom have I in heaven but you? I desire you more than anything on earth. My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; he is mine forever.

Psalm 73:25-26 NLT

Today’s reading
Genesis 22

Abraham’s faith tested

REFRAMING JESUS

GENESIS 22:8-14—THE LORD WILL PROVIDE JESUS

The place where God supplies a sacrifice for Abraham eventually becomes the site of the Temple, where Israel will focus its entire system of faith in God. It’s on this same mountain that Jesus will be sentenced to death as a sacrifice for the sins of humanity. What did Abraham know about God that filled him with such faith? How does Jesus’ death on the cross compare to the sacrifice that the Lord provides in Genesis 22?

WHEN SOMETHING IN YOUR LIFE OR THOUGHTS makes you anxious, come to Me and talk about it. Bring Me your prayerand petition with thanksgiving, saying, “Thank You, Jesus, for this opportunity to trust You more.” Though the lessons of trust that I send to you come wrapped in difficulties, the benefits far outweigh the cost.

Well-developed trust will bring you many blessings, not the least of which is My Peace. I have promised to keep you inperfect Peace to the extent that you trust in Me. The world has it backward, teaching that peace is the result of having enough money, possessions, insurance, and security systems. My Peace, however, is such an all-encompassing gift that it is independent of all circumstances. Though you lose everything else, if you gain My Peace you are rich indeed.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. —Philippians 4:6

You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.
—Isaiah 26:3

Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way. The Lord be with you all. —2 Thessalonians 3:16 nkjv

WISDOM FROM OSWALD CHAMBERS

We are not fundamentally free; external circumstances are not in our hands, they are in God’s hands, the one thing in which we are free is in our personal relationship to God. We are not responsible for the circumstances we are in, but we are responsible for the way we allow those circumstances to affect us; we can either allow them to get on top of us, or we can allow them to transform us into what God wants us to be.
