Daily Fountain 2017 - When God Speaks

Thursday July 6

Bible Reading:     Gen. 24: 50 - 60
Topic:                  When God Speaks

It was clear to all - both Abraham's servant and Rebekah's family - that God was involved in the unfolding story before them.

And true wisdom demands that no man resist or seek to truncate what God has ordained in His Infinite Wisdom

When God speaks concerning any matter, all obstacles are ultimately dismantled because no man has the right to say no when God has said yes on any matter.

"Rebekah is yours, take her and go, let her marry your Master's son as the Lord hath commanded" was the response of Rebekah's family

It is overwhelmingly clear that Abraham's servant acknowledged God from the beginning to the end (vs. 12 - 15, 52), an example that every child of God must follow in all situations.

In Jer. 33: 3, God says "call to Me and I will answer you and show great and mighty things you do not know"

No man fails in any mission in which God is assigned His rightful place.

Despite the emotional distress, Rebekah's departure would likely cause her family, they sent her off with hearty blessings.

God's children must learn to let go when God says so and this nor grudgingly but heartily.

Lord, to learn to consciously submit to Your Will in all areas of life, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Memory Verse             Gen. 24: 60
"And they blessed Rebekah and said unto her; Thou art our sister, be thou the Mother of thousands, of millions, and let thy seed possess the gate of those which hate them."
