When God Starts A Process.

Key Verse

“And Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah’s tent, and took Rebekah, and she became his wife; and he loved her: and Isaac was comforted after his mother’s death” (Genesis 24:67).

TEXT — Genesis 24:61-67


Momentous events in the history of man are orchestrated by God from seemingly small person-to-person meetings or group actions. In the Bible narrative, the Lord brought Moses and Aaron together to start the liberation of Israel from hundreds of years of servitude in Egypt. History also records how the United States of America originated from a contingent of 102 settlers aboard the Mayflower that sailed from Plymouth, England, in 1620.

God was again deep in the picture when He arranged the meeting of Isaac and Rebekah in the middle part of Canaan, the Promised Land. It was an encounter that would be part of God’s plan to raise a family to bring blessings to the race of men through Isaac, the child of promise. Isaac came from the deep south while Rebekah sojourned from the far north.

Distance and circumstances, which are barriers to man, do not stop the Lord from accomplishing His promises to man.
In our relationship with God, we must reckon more with His unlimited wisdom and power to work out what is incomprehensible and mysterious to us than with our self-will. In the choice of a lifetime spouse, career, business, and associates, where to relocate our family, and so on, we need to seek His priceless counsel for enduring success. It is not out of place to plan our marriages or businesses. But every stage of the plan must be ceded to God.

We incur heavy losses when we do not allow the Lord full control of the process He initiates to bless us. Abraham, Isaac, and Rebekah did not hijack the marriage affair from God through subtle plans to hasten its outcome. So, the union had a salutary result that left “Isaac comforted after his mother’s death”.

Thought for the day

You may slow down, but not hasten God’s intervention by your impatience.
