I have often wondered at Isaac’s patience to submit to be bound for a sacrifice, and see the knife so near his throat, without any hideous outcries or strugglings that we read of. He was old enough to be apprehensive of death, and the horror of it, being conceived by some to be above twenty years of age. That he was of good growth is out of doubt by the wood which Abraham caused him to carry for the sacrifice. But, such was the authority Abraham had over his son, and the confidence that Isaac had in his father, that he durst put his life into his hands; which, had the knife been in any other hand, he would hardly have done.

The trust that Isaac had in Abraham, Abraham had in God. Both knew their Father’s love and believed that whatever was being done was right. Strive for this level of confidence in your Heavenly Father today.
