Abraham, who had received God’s promises, was ready to sacrifice his only son, Isaac, though God had promised him, “Isaac is the son through whom your descendants will be counted.” Hebrews 11:17, NLT
God asked Abraham to give up the very thing he treasured most – his long-awaited son, Isaac. But Abraham was not afraid to sacrifice his son, because he believed if Isaac died, God could bring him back again.
Aspiring writer, is there an ” Isaac” God wants you to give up today to write for publication? Could your “Isaac” be a demanding career, time on social media or your phone, or time watching your favorite TV show? Whatever it is, sometimes God will ask you to give up the very thing you treasure most to write for publication. But don’t despair, for when you give up your “Isaac” to write for the kingdom, God will return it back to you doublefold.
Sharing the journey,
Respoinding to God’s call to write: Father, help me to give up whatever is necessary to write for publication, knowing you will return my sacrifice double-fold. Amen.
