Abraham, the "father of many nations," was promised a son in his old age. The Lord assured Abraham that through his offspring, all the nations of the world would be blessed.
Some time after the birth of Isaac, (Abraham and Sarah's miracle child), Abraham was commanded by God to offer his son as a sacrifice in the land of Moriah. Forced to make the most difficult decision of his life, Abraham put his faith into action and began preparations for taking the life of his only son. But just as Abraham was about to sacrifice Isaac, the angel of the Lord called out to him and said,
"Abraham! Abraham! Do not lay a head on the boy. Do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me, your only son." - Genesis 22:11-12, NIV)
Abraham passed this test of faith and thus renewed his trust in the Lord.
