“After these things God tested Abraham and said to him, “Abraham!”
“Here I am,” he answered.”
Genesis 22:1 HCSB
Abraham walked so closely with God he knew God’s voice when he heard it. He could distinguish the sound of His voice from wrong voices that might trip him up, as the serpent did with Eve in the Garden of Eden. Abraham also quickly responded when God spoke to him. Abraham had a healthy “fear” of God, described by one study Bible as “worshipful submission, reverential awe and obedient respect to the covenant-keeping God of Israel.” Abraham had seen firsthand God keep his promise when Isaac was born after a 25 year wait from the initial pledge re Abraham having many descendants.
Think back to a time you “heard” God speak to you. Do you presently walk closely enough to hear His voice?🚦
