We are very used to thinking about God being all-knowing, having everything all planned out in advance and then our job being just to cooperate with the plan. But that’s not the way that Genesis tells this story; there’s no assumption here of God’s omniscience.
So maybe God didn’t know what Abraham would do. Was Abraham, in fact, trusting and serving God because of all the marvelous promises that God had made to him?” ~ from my sermon June 29, 2014
Why do you trust God? Do you think that God knows everything you will do in advance? Is it trust if you don’t have a choice about how you will respond?
