Something’s Gotta Give!

“What happens when an irresistible force meets an immovable object?”

This is, of course, a contradiction in terms.

My will vs. His will

But what happens when our will contradicts God’s will?

God gives us freedom to yield to His will or resist His will.

Jesus prayed to be spared the cross, but obeyed His Father’s will instead (Matthew 26:36-46).

What I think vs. what God says

And what if God’s command runs counter to common sense?

God promised Abraham many descendants through his son Isaac (Genesis 21:12).

But then He commanded Abraham to sacrifice Isaac (Genesis 22).

Abraham so trusted God’s promise that he believed God could raise Isaac from the dead (Hebrews 11:17-19).

Instead, God stopped Abraham at the last moment.

What a severe test of faith! Yet Abraham obeyed.

Will we?
