This part of chapter 22 is where things get really “crazy”! Abraham is just about to kill his only son on the altar, before he hears a voice telling him to stop what he is about to do. And then he saw a ram not far from them and offered it instead.
Exercising your faith will sometimes push you to the limit – but that is how we grow in our faith – by being obedient. We see with Abraham, God tested his obedience until the point of insanity and then God provided a replacement for Isaac at the perfect time just like He promised.
