Daily Fountain 2017 - Isaac Had Time For God

Friday July 7

Bible Reading:     Gen. 24: 61 - 67
Topic:                  Isaac Had Time For God

Isaac was a godly man, who devoted quality time to meditation and prayer to God.

He obviously had a habit of separating himself from the noisome neighbourhood unto a quiet and conducive atmosphere to aid his meditation.

Isaac was clearly aware that his father's chief servant had undertaken a mission to secure a wife for him. Yet being equally mindful of the wisdom that relying on the arm of flesh would ultimately spell disaster (Jer. 17:5), he probably included the servant's trip in his prayers.

Isaac lifted up his eyes in the place of meditation and saw Rebekah.

Revelations are most likely encountered in an atmosphere of meditation. Upon setting their eyes on each other, their hearts were immediately knit together, an indication that she must be God's answer to the prayers of the family and Isaac knew Rebekah was in the scheme of God's will for his life and she would now be his confidant and companion.

With his mother gone, this was great comfort to him.

Divine comfort awaits you in your prayer closet

Gracious Lord, teach me to endeavour to spend quality time in Your presence every day so I may be aligned with Your purpose for me,  Amen.

Memory Verse             Gen. 24: 67
"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."
