Genesis 22:2. God a said, “Take your son-your only son, whom you love, Isaac and go to the land of Moriah! Offer him up there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains which I will indicate to you.”

God knew how much Abraham loved his son. God also knew how much Abraham loved Him. God wanted Abraham and Isaac to see their priorities. God wants and deserves to be first in our hearts, minds and lives. Our question is where does God really come in our own heart, mind or life? It’s hard to really be honest with ourselves. We want to say God is first and above all else with us but is that a wish or an actuality? We need to take time often to check our priorities So many distractions slip in and clamor for our devotion. A dangerous pray to our idols is “God, help me put You above all else.” He will. Our life and values will change but we will never regret for we will be full of God through His Holy Spirit.
