Day 6: Is He First?

Now I know that you fear God because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son. –Genesis 22:12

Read the whole passage in Genesis 22:1-19.

What takes priority in your life? What makes you hesitate when God says, “Give it up.” Perhaps it’s an old wound or a long-held grudge. Maybe it’s pride. Maybe it’s your comfort, career, or possessions. Everyone has tested. Everyone has those moments when God asks, “Am I still First?” What will you say when that moment comes? Would you pass the test? If God asked, would you sell your house or quit your job? Would you risk financial stability, relational connections, or career opportunities if God asked you to prove that he was still First in your life?

Talk with God
God, I want to make you first in my life. I struggle and I stumble and I need your help, but I want to be Second.

Live it. How will you live more Second today?
Tell it. How will you share what you have learned?
