In the world but not of it

Another ordinary day…

It was evening, and the women were coming out to draw water. Genesis 24:11

It was just another ordinary day in the life of Rebekah.

We don’t know much about her prior to the time the servant was instructed to go and find a bride for Isaac but we see the events in action leading up to the well where the servant first saw her.

We see how Abraham told the servant that an angel would go before him and lead him to the woman that would become Isaac’s wife. We know the servant took an oath to fulfill his duties and do exactly as Abraham asked of him. When the servant arrived and watched the women coming out to draw water, we see him praying and asking God specifically for direction and an answer.

And then it happens…Rebekah meets the man and does exactly what the servant asked God to have her do. From that moment on her life would never be the same.

Perhaps she had been crying out to the Lord for years for a husband or for direction in her life. Maybe those evenings at the well were spent thinking of how tedious her life was and the possibility of things ever changing.

We don’t know what burdens or joys she carried in her heart but we do know that on just another ordinary day it all changed.

I see that in the lives of so many faithful people who continue to seek the Lord for answers, for direction and for confirmation to situations in their life. They don’t stop praying and they also don’t stop doing what they are presently called to do. They continue to pray while they work and meet the responsibilities before them trusting that at just the right time the Lord will answer.

We don’t know how He will answer, we can’t predict the method, the people He will use or the exact order of events He will orchestrate in order to bring us the specific answer but we know He will…

On just another ordinary day…
