Meet Me At the Altar
My Beloved Daughter,
I want to set you free from holding on to anyone but Me. Because I love you, I am asking you I am asking you today to trust Me with those you love by laying them down at My altar.
If you will obey Me, I will bless you as I blessed Abraham for laying down his much-loved son on the altar. Remember, those I place in your life ultimately belong to Me. I know what is best because I created you and them; this test of your faith is not for Me, My beloved warrior… it is for you. I want you to walk the rest of your days in complete freedom–not fear for those you love!
Your King who is to be trusted
Some time later, God tested Abraham’s faith. “Abraham!” God called. “Yes,” he replied. “Here I am.” “Take your son, your only son—yes, Isaac, whom you love so much…and sacrifice him as a burnt offering on one of the mountains, which I will show you.” – Genesis 22:1–2 (NLT)
A Prayer to Let Go
Loving woman of God! I pray that you would let the Lord be your love above all others. May you find your security as you learn to let go and grab hold of God alone. I pray that you will honor and trust your Lord by giving back to Him those who are already His. May you feel him reassure you as you as you lay your loved ones down at His feet. May you find comfort that God knows what is best for those you dearly love and has everything planned out for His divine purpose. May you pick up the peace from God as you lay them down all those you hold on to. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
A man is a slave to whatever has mastered him. – 2 Peter 2:19
