Very few, if any, of Abraham's decisions were easy ones concerning all he had to do to get all he got, but he was obedient and extremely blessed as a result. He became the father of many nations and kings came from him. He had power, influence, and extreme wealth, but most importantly he was a mighty man of God. Thus, he decreased as the Lord increased (John 3:30). Or we can say he willingly put himself below God and he was exalted (lifted up) for that very reason. He was brought low to be brought higher. That's what sacrifice will get you. He knew his place with God the Father, he loved God and obeyed his commands. He made the choice to be used by God.
