So Rebekah left her family by faith to become the wife of Isaac.  Isaac was at home praying that God would provide him a wife and care for his family.  The Faith that passed down to their generation was the faith that continued the growth of God’s people.  Abraham knew that Isaac would never remain faithful if he became part of the Canaanite community.  Isaac also knew and followed his father’s leadership.  He also was a man of prayer.  He saw God’s provision on the mountain and he trusted that God provides in all matters.  Now, as he was to become the patriarch of the family, he was prepared in every way.

In our lives, we have a job. We must prepare our lives and the lives of our children to honor and follow God.  As we are faithful in that, he will provide and prepare us.  He will establish his continued covenant with us.  We follow and he takes care of the rest.  This will impact us and our children for generations–and preserve a legacy that will be eternal.

God Bless You

 

Our sister, may you become
The mother of thousands of ten thousands;
And may your descendants possess
The gates of those who hate them.”

61 Then Rebekah and her maids arose, and they rode on the camels and followed the man. So the servant took Rebekah and departed.

62 Now Isaac came from the way of Beer Lahai Roi, for he dwelt in the South. 63 And Isaac went out to meditate in the field in the evening; and he lifted his eyes and looked, and there, the camels were coming. 64 Then Rebekah lifted her eyes, and when she saw Isaac she dismounted from her camel; 65 for she had said to the servant, “Who is this man walking in the field to meet us?”

The servant said, “It is my master.” So she took a veil and covered herself.

66 And the servant told Isaac all the things that he had done. 67 Then Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah’s tent; and he took Rebekah and she became his wife, and he loved her. So Isaac was comforted after his mother’s death.
