Command: By Faith: Prayers and Poetry

Hebrews 11:18, “of whom he had been told, ‘It is through Isaac that descendants shall be named for you.’”


How willing are you to be obedient? Does it depend on who is asking? Will your attitude match your actions?

If a parent, we usually have no difficulties establishing our ‘authority’. And our children can tell if a command is open for discussion or not by our voice. Through their growing years they often test those boundaries to see when they achieve more responsibility. They know our tone so well that sometimes they recognize they may have pushed too far before we do. We have the power to send young children to bed early and withhold car keys from teen-agers.

Sometimes can our attitude towards others exercising their authority over us influences our attitude towards God, either in ensuing obedience or outright rebellion. Will we run away like the prodigal son and end up in mire, or stick close like the elder son and nurse a grudge for years?

Abraham faced the most heart-rending choice imaginable. Yet he made it based on his understanding of God’s character, and so entrusted to Him his most precious gift.

“My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to accomplish His work.” John 4:34

Lord, please give us courage to follow and obey with complete trust, knowing that your promises and Your commands overflow with Your redeeming love.

Your thoughts,
