Most inspirational book on what the obedience in and by faith looks like This is an easy read, although his way of speech is "poetic" in style his message is clear and he gets his point across precisely.

A proof for the necessity of understanding and teaching the whole counsel of God! F B Meyer was an excellent writer.
His books are full of new revelations of Abraham and his life. He has such a way of wanting you to dig deeper into the word of God. There is a wonderful collection of the great men of the Bible. I was fortunate to find his writings on Amazon.
I have not had a chance to read yet. What I was looking for and came with fast shipping. This book helps to understand why Abraham is considered such a monumental person of faith. He is such an example to me of what true faith really means and entails.

- ABRAHAM’S OBEDIENCE BY FAITH!
- Abraham, or the Obedience of Faith, Table of Contents, by F.B. Meyer;
I really like the Old Testament people of faith because they really "flesh out" how we should live our lives. Always insightful and a blessing to read F. See all 11 reviews. First, God gives Abraham the promise of future blessing. Then follows, secondly, the next tense of faith, which is the present tense. The thing that Abraham expected he now accepts and takes as a present fact. The future becomes the present tense, and faith becomes action.
But there is still a third step of faith. The thing that was promised was done, and is now finished. Action has become transaction, and has passed even beyond the present tense, and therefore Abraham must take the position of one who has passed through all these stages, and has actually received his yet unseen blessing. He must change his name and stand before the public and be laughed at and called a fool, an old man in his dotage, a dreamer, as his neighbors ask him the reason of the strange difference in his name, and he tells them that God has made him the father of many nations.
Living Stream Ministry
Faith must be sealed by testimony, and testimony must be steeped in trial, shame, and many a waiting hour of trusting in the darkness. This, beloved, is the way in which we must meet El-Shaddai. We must not only take the promise for the future, but we must bring it into the present, and claim it as an immediate fact in this moment of our lives.
Then we must translate it into the past, and take the position that it is an accomplished fact, and call it so, never ashamed to have men know that we believe our God and venture on calling the things that are not as though they were. This is the committal of faith. Rest in the Lord, be silent to God and wait patiently for Him, and He shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light and thy judgment as the noonday. Faith will die without confession; but a true and humble acknowledgment commits it and confirms it.
We must not merely believe, but we must even CALL the things that are not as though they were, and take the witness-stand for God in regard to all He has called us to. Isaac, the link of all the promise, must be given up. Was it then a mistake that in Isaac all the seed was to come? No, not for a second did he question.
Isaac might even die, but God could not break His word. It must all come, even if Isaac was raised from the dead.
Bible Study - Isaac's Faith And Obedience
This was really what Abraham looked for. It was his faith, therefore, not only his obedience and love that were tested. And it was because he believed that God would give Isaac back that he was able to give him up. So God would have us stand in the most trying hours, knowing that He cannot lie, and so fully trusting Him that we give up our very blessings to His hand, and our very promises to His keeping, knowing that He is faithful that promised. Such trials only bring out the richer preciousness and overcoming power of faith.
