There is a trial that is perhaps the hardest of all and it is to this incident in the life of Abraham that we now arrive. In the 22nd chapter of Genesis is one of the most famous stories in the Bible, the story of Abraham offering up Isaac. I think anyone can see, in this account of Abraham offering his son Isaac as a burnt offering, a remarkable foreshadowing in the Old Testament of the work of Christ in the New.

What God Gives Back  ( Genesis 22:15-19 )  Daily Devotion

I swear by myself declares the LORD, that because you have done this and have not withheld your son, your only son, I will surely bless you (Genesis 22:16-17a)

When Abraham gave his son back to God, then God said the promise of fruitfulness would be immediately fulfilled. The rivers of living waters would now begin to flow out from him to bless all the nations of the earth as God had promised. It was when Isaac came back from the dead, so to speak, in resurrection power that God said, Now the fruitfulness of your life will be manifest.
