Do you panic when taking a test? A mind easily goes blank when feeling the stress of coming up with the correct answers for an exam. Harder still is a road test, when you have to demonstrate your ability to adapt book knowledge to on the road performance. How wonderful to hear the words of the examiner, “You passed with flying colors!” God put Abraham to the test.

“For he reasoned that God was able to raise [him] up even from among the dead. Indeed in the sense that Isaac was figuratively dead [potentially sacrificed], he did [actually] receive him back from the dead (Hebrews 11:19 Amplified Bible).” Abraham passed God’s test of faith with flying colors and serves as an example to you and me…
