Abraham does not falter in following God in this sacrifice experience. Abraham took his son Isaac to the altar and decided in his heart that he would do what he must. This had to be one of the most difficult things he did in his lifetime. Yet notice the promise and blessing that awaited Abraham, his family, and their descendants behind that challenge. I believe that God awaits us behind difficulties of this life just like that today. Though He is with us through the challenges of this life ever extending grace, He also stands poised to provide so much more than that upon our victories.
