Just one? 🙂 One of the first thoughts that came to my mind was concerning Abraham, who was commanded to offer up his only son, Isaac. Though the specific word “obey” is not found, the concept permeates the account, found in Genesis 22. When Isaac questioned Abraham about the offering, Abraham replied “God will provide…”(Gen. 22:8). Hebrews 11:17-19 further reveals the thoughts of Abraham: he had faith that God was able to raise Isaac from the dead. Abraham obeyed, knowing that he could place complete trust in God to work out what seemed to be a most difficult situation. Are we willing to obey Him in all things, with complete trust in Him to provide, in spite of our limited view?
My favorite hymn is “Hold to God’s Unchanging Hand” by F.L.Eiland: http://www.scripturessay.com/song/2-19Track19.mp3
The lyrics of the song are taken from Hebrews 13:5-8, where the Hebrew writer talks about the fact that we need to be satisfied with what God has provided us (Matthew 6:19-34). For us not to worry about the necessities of life, because the unchanging God we serve, will never leave us or forsake us – always there to help us when we need help.
