Assistant with a sharp knife in her hand!
Before reading the assistant’s post of today, go to this link:
He’ll Provide – Campaign of Israel and listen to this beautiful song carefully, with spiritual “ears“.
Observe more deeply this excerpt of the letter:
With care and respect he prepared, an altar to God on that day
Placing the wood and the kindling to set it ablaze
He picked up his child bound with cords
Laid him onto the altar to slay
A sharpened knife in his hand he raised over his boy
Abraham stood firm in his faith, God’s plan he refused to deny
Ready to do any task his God had required
Today’s article, in a very simple way, aims to give you an introspection. Did you observe the underlined words?
They talk about you.
Could it be that you are preparing, or are you doing everything unthinkingly, like a robot?
Are you taking all the care and zeal in the small details, in the preparation of your sacrifice?
And I’m not only speaking about participating in the Campaign of Israel, but above all in the daily sacrifice, which begins within yourself, renouncing your “I”, your “five senses” (in the way you speak, think, see, touch, hear, etc.).
Do you remember last week’s article? Or are you an assistant presenting your life in a disorderly way to God, without any order and discipline? Consequently, you live complaining that the ” fire does not burn,” that is, that nothing extraordinary happens in your life.
Did you already pick up and bound the “boy”? Only you know who that boy is, and what it is … It may be related to your way of being or your strong character, that never were sacrificed.
Is your “knife” sharpened? Or rusty that you can’t cut anything? This “knife” is your faith, and if it’s not sharp, which means that it’s not in action, than you will never “cut” radically your feelings, emotions.
Abraham did everything by faith and from God’s plan he didn’t run away … and you assistant—are you willing to do what God asks you at this hour? Or will you once again run away?
I would like to know your thoughts about today’s article. I await your comment, which always enriches my life.
