GOD DOESN'T HAVE COMMON SENSE

Scripture for today

Genesis 22:2 AMP 
[God] said, take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the region of Moriah; and offer him there as burnt offering upon one of the mountains of which I will tell you. 

God told Abraham to sacrifice the only great treasure he had. You all know how much Abraham had to wait for this promise Genesis 21:1-3. He waited until now for God to give him this son and all of a sudden he is telling him to sacrifice him. As in kill him or whatever God has in mind.  How great this man was he just obeyed.  Sometimes I put myself in His shoes, as in how easy would it have been for me to move forward into God's instructions? But it struck me, that is the same man I sing about!! and sing his blessings are mine. 

The problem with us as believers is that we have so much "knowledge" about God we feel we know just about everything about him.  Which makes us question his very move in our lives and environment.  Abraham followed God sheepishly, I mean crazily even when nothing God was saying was making sense.  Truly does God really make sense.  He doesn't, because even your common sense will stand against all that he has commanded. 

Just imagine telling a woman who was ninety that she was going to have a baby, is that common sense?(Genesis 18:14) Imagine telling a full blown man to kill his son, I mean how sensible is that? Imagine just putting mud on someone's eyes and it just opens how sensible can that be?  Imagine just turning water into wine even common sense knows it's not possible.  Just imagine feeding five thousand or more people with just 5 loaves and two fishes. Our common sense as humans will certainly question God's very best for us. 

Abraham got so blessed beyond measures by God because he followed God beyond his common sense. He followed his divine directions  with a crazy faith. 

Prayer: Father, may I obey you even when you don't make sense.
