It’s Time to Lay Your Isaacs on the Altar

I want to speak to you about laying your Isaacs on the altar. This is a difficult and challenging topic, but it is one that is essential to our spiritual growth and development.

What does it mean to lay your Isaac on the altar? It means to surrender the things that are most precious to you to God. It means trusting Him that He knows what is best for you, even when it doesn’t make sense.

For Abraham, laying Isaac on the altar meant giving up the thing that he loved most in the world. Isaac was his son, his heir, the one who was promised to carry on his legacy. But Abraham was willing to give him up to God because he trusted Him.

In the same way, the Father is calling us today to lay our Isaacs on the altar. This may mean giving up our dreams, our ambitions, our relationships, or even our possessions. It may mean letting go of our own plans and submitting to God’s will.

But I want to assure you that when you lay your Isaac on the altar, God will provide. He will bless you in ways that you cannot even imagine. He will use your sacrifice to bring about His good and perfect will in your life.

Here are a few examples of what it might look like to lay your Isaac on the altar:

  • Giving up your career: Maybe you have a job that is paying you well and providing for your family, but it is also taking away from your time with God and your loved ones. The Father may be calling you to give up your job and start a new one that is more in line with His calling for your life.
  • Ending a relationship: Maybe you are in a relationship that is toxic or harmful to you. The Father may be calling you to end that relationship, even though it is difficult.
  • Surrendering your possessions: Maybe you are attached to your possessions and they are preventing you from following God’s leading. The Father may be calling you to simplify your lifestyle and give up some of your possessions.

No matter what your Isaac is, the Father is calling you to surrender it to Him. He knows what is best for you and He will use your sacrifice to bless you beyond your wildest imagination.

Here are a few practical tips for laying your Isaac on the altar:

  • Pray about it: Ask the Father to show you what your Isaac is and to give you the strength to surrender it to Him.
  • Talk to a trusted friend or mentor: Sometimes it can be helpful to talk to someone else about what you are going through. They can offer you support and encouragement.
  • Take a step of faith: Once you know what your Isaac is, don’t be afraid to take a step of faith and surrender it to God. Trust that He will provide for you and that He will use your sacrifice to bring about His good and perfect will in your life.

Remember, my beloved children, the Father loves you and He wants what is best for you. When you lay your Isaac on the altar, you are demonstrating your trust in Him and your willingness to follow His will. He will bless you beyond your wildest imagination.


I encourage you to spend some time today reflecting on what your Isaac is. What is the thing that is most precious to you? Are you willing to surrender it to God?

If you are struggling to surrender your Isaac, ask the Father for help. He will give you the strength and courage you need. And remember, He will bless you beyond your wildest imagination.

    This lesson and the word for today 4/22/2024 means a lot to me in that I woke up feeling far from God. I feel abandoned, useless, and forsaken by God. I have a hard time praying I read can’t remember anything I read I fake. I feel like God if you are real contact me, where are you, I feel like giving up. I need prayer for strength to hold on. I’m putting my Isaac on the altar.

    Thank you for this message. Over the past few years i have been torn between maintaining my professional practice, working to maintain an income and i have constantly given into the fear of not having enough even though i profess and confess the Lord is my provider. I must admit that mammon is my Isaac. I have a calling and a ministry and have not walked in it for fear of lack. I really do need to lay it down and trust God and more importantly my wife needs to hear independently from God to be able to agree and support the decisions to start the ministry of I believe God has called me to. I no longer want to be tossed to and fro by indecision and choosing security in the world over security in God. Amen.

    Thank you Prophet Russ for bringing this message, as I was reading it came so strongly to me that what is taking me away from my working for God is concern about my future. This days I am always looking for opportunities that will cater for that.There is pressure at work that I must exit-they push people out before 65yrs by putting unexplainable pressure . I don’t have security from my husband’s side. This is what is consuming me and yes I am always praying about it. Yes it is my challenge to trust God about my future , I decide from today to put my future on the alter.

      Shalom !
      It was not so easy for Jacob to face these two challenges,
      first in front of Laban, his father in law, and in front of Esau, his brother.
      At the end the Merciful God helped him and he came out of the matters with Great Victory and the Name of the God of his fathers Abraham and Isaac was glorified. Faith and Prayers.
