You have to Sacrifice Good—Where You can Experience the BEST. God was asking Abram to Sacrifice the Familiar for Faith. So many times we miss the best because we are not willing to get out of our comfort zone. Sacrifice is giving up something you love in order to get something you love more.
Now the Lord had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, From your family And from your father’s house, To a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” So Abram departed as the Lord had spoken to him, and Lot went with him. And Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran. Then Abram took Sarai his wife and Lot his brother’s son, and all their possessions that they had gathered, and the people whom they had acquired in Haran, and they departed to go to the land of Canaan. So they came to the land of Canaan. Genesis 12:1-5
Don’t Focus on your Sacrifice, Focus on the Blessings as a Result of your Sacrifice. Most people are blinded to the Truth about Satisfaction—They always believe it is a result of something they get, but it’s only activated by what we give. You are giving up something, but the Truth is you are about to go Up! The Higher you go the more you will have to give up. But the higher you go the closer you are to God and what He has for you to do.
Sacrifice and Satisfaction has no Age Limits. The key to being satisfied is not a matter of how old or young you are; It’s not a matter of how much you have or don’t have—It’s a matter of willing to Sacrifice something you love for something you love more and that More has to be JESUS! Whatever you sacrifice will be nothing compared to what you get! First, God asked Abram to give up his family and land—The Result—God gave Abraham the son he wanted and dreamed about. Second, God asked Abraham to give up his on (Sacrifice) him on the alter—The Result—God provided a lamb—Which was a type of Jesus Christ.
But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man, The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9
