1/19/2018 Genesis Chapters 22-24
What a full range of emotions these chapters deliver. Abraham’s devastation and then elation at the planned sacrifice of and subsequent salvation of Isaac; Abraham’s sorrow at the death of Sarah (Chapter 23:2😉 the love of Isaac for Rebekah & the comfort Rebekah brings Isaac after the death of Sarah (Chapter 24:67).
And among all of these human emotions throughout these chapters we see God’s plan for the nation of Israel unfold. My application for us — we will also have emotions associated with events in our lives. Emotions are certainly an appropriate response for the different occasions we face.
But we must also recognize that while our emotions will change — the Lord’s plan continues to work steadily and unwaveringly through these events.
