Faith beyond common sense

Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.  Hebrews 11:19

I can’t even fathom was occurred in his mind and heart, but even being able to grasp that God told you to sacrifice your child, the miracle child that God had given you, takes a lot of faith.  How could our human reasoning even wrap itself around that?  Yet, there it was.  God told him to do it.  Read the scripture—Abraham never questioned him.

Hebrews makes it clear why, though even this, takes much faith.  Abraham was a friend of God.  He knew.  He KNEW.  The God that brought him out of Ur, the God who made all things, the God who said your 90-year-old wife is going to give you a child.   THAT God.  He knew in himself by faith, that the God who gave Him Isaac was able to raise him from the dead.   This is what Jesus meant when He said Abraham saw His day.

If we think about it, what could possibly be too hard for God?  NOTHING.  Yet we rely on our common sense, our own reasoning, our own limited minds to try to grasp who and what God is and what He is capable of doing.

We must get to a place where we say, God can do anything.   Where we don’t let the limitations of our reasoning deter us.  Faith is believing that He is, and that He is able to reward those that diligently seek Him.  Diligently seek the God of the miraculous today and believe that He is able.
