[The Glory Unveiled]
When they reached the place God had told him about, Abraham built an altar there and arranged the wood on it. He bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. ( Genesis 22:9 )
All the way through scripture are records of situations that demanded a leap of faith. Anytime it seem that God was making a demand on us that we could not “ordinary” meet, He was calling on us to take a leap of faith. Most of the time, to act in faith will mean that we thrust out into the deep without a deep revelation nor a full understanding of why. It means to take a step even when the stairs are not fully in view. Abraham took a leap of faith to attempt sacrificing his only son. Queen Esther leapt in faith to approach the King who had not asked for her (see Esther 4:16); this in their day and time was a punishable offense. But she was willing to go all out in faith regardless of the outcome, saying if I perish, I perish. The apostle Peter also leapt out in faith when the Master Jesus asked him to come to Him on the water. Peter probably thought of the laws of nature he would probably have to ignore in order to take that first step just as Esther had to ignore the laws of Shushan that demanded that no Queen visited the King unless called upon. Abraham while he bound Isaac up had to ignore the opinions of the people around him to move out in faith. A leap of faith always requires of us to ignore some laws that may work against the actualisation of that goal. Leap out in faith today. Hang on the promise of God, don’t look on the laws of life that are screaming “impossible!” at you. It is possible.
Prayer_Bead: Lord Jesus, Author and Finisher of my faith, take away my unbelief, fears and doubts. Help me to take a bold leap of faith.
