Scripture: Genesis 22:1-19
Series: Lessons from the Mountaintop
Mountaintop experiences are not all "mountaintop experiences," if you know what I mean. They are not all sunshine and light. There is a dark side to the mountain a place of testing. The following are three lessons from the "dark" side of the mountain:
- On the dark side of the mountain, God tests our faith in Him (v. 1).
- Will you trust Me with the thing you love most?
- Will you trust Me even when you can't understand what I'm up to?
- Will you trust Me for the impossible?
- God's provision for today is exactly what we need (v. 13).
- God's blessing for tomorrow is more than we can even imagine (vv. 15-18).
"To this day it is said (by those who have been with God on the dark side of the mountain), 'On the mountain of the Lord, it will be provided!"
