I had planned much of my life as a unit of one, dreamed as a unit of one, and worried as a unit of one.But what would it be like to be the other half of two? Would I be able to handle someone else’s faults, needs, and schedule along with my own?When you are serious about serving the Lord, He will pinpoint those things in your life that are threatening to take that place of worship that should be reserved for God alone.God is jealous for our affections; He will not take second place in our lives.Would Abraham die to the dream of being a father once again? It felt like the mode I was operating under was tainted, so I began with repentance for having such difficulty in following the Lord.
Before I had a chance to utter my request, the gentle woman with the beautiful long, red hair who came to pray for me looked me in the eye and said—and I am paraphrasing a bit here because I don’t have this recorded on tape—“I don’t know if this is from the Lord or not, but I think God is trying to say that you need to lay down your Isaac. There was that same concept that I had heard for months now—“letting go.” You know how hard it is to give up when you are a stubborn, tenacious person?I don’t believe Abraham was saying that hoping Isaac would stop badgering him. I believe Abraham knew the God whom he served, and God would make a way beyond his own understanding. I just am amazed at that level of “letting go.” Well, if you know the story, Abraham found favor that day.At the last moment, the angel of the Lord stopped Abraham from murdering his son.I know that we are supposed to lean not on our own understanding and trust in Him (Proverbs 3:5).But when you have operated under your own understanding in a particular area of life and you have relied on your past experiences to see you through for so long, it seems downright unnatural not to think about it.
