“On the third day…” (Genesis 22:4, NLT)

Abraham could not quickly carry out God’s instruction. Rather, he had three long days to think about what he must do. Three days to have second thoughts. Three days to come up with some good reason to turn around.

For Abraham, this was a long obedience in the same direction (HT Eugene Peterson).

Are there times when you don’t understand God but you trust him anyway? When you persist in obedience even when everything in you is screaming to stop?

Take heart, for you are on the journey of faith.
