CAMELS

Today's Reading: Genesis 24

Key Verse: Genesis 24:58

Then they called Rebekah and said to her, "Will you go with this man?" And she said, "I will go."


Sarah, Isaac's mother, had passed away three years earlier. No doubt Isaac was lonely. In fulfillment of God's promise to Abraham, it was necessary that Abraham become a grandfather to Isaac's children.

God's purposes in the human family are developed by human co-operation. So Abraham's right-hand man travelled from present-day Israel, through present day Jordan and Iraq (Mesopotamia) to find family and a bride for Isaac.

What a beautiful story of God's choice…a faithful servant, an amazing young woman (watering those camels was not an easy task), and willing parents. The words, "The camels are coming" (verse 63), speak to the fact that people, even animals, may do God's will if they make the right choice.


PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Father God, just as the faithful servant worshipped You every time another step was taken in fulfilling Your plan, so I worship You for Your will being done in and through me. Amen!

Dear God, sometimes my "testing" season seems so long. Please give me courage to endure until the end. Help me not to bail! You said you would bless me for hanging in there - I will not give up on you or your promises. You are with me and will see me through this trial.
