Encouraging words

Today’s Verse
  
From the New Living Translation
  “When Isaac was forty years old, he married Rebekah, the daughter of Bethuel the Aramean from Paddan-aram and the sister of Laban the Aramean.

  “Isaac pleaded with the LORD on behalf of his wife, because she was unable to have children. The LORD answered Isaac’s prayer, and Rebekah became pregnant with twins.…Isaac was sixty years old when the twins were born.”
Genesis 25:20-21, 26c

Encouragement for Today
Like Abraham and Sarah, Isaac and Rebekah also had trouble conceiving a child. Could it be that God had Abraham and Isaac wait for their hearts’ desires so that they would seek him, and so that it would be quite obvious that these children came from God? Note too that Isaac pleaded on behalf of his wife—this drew him closer to Rebekah and to God. When God is doing something in our lives, it is always about him getting the glory, about our coming to know him more deeply and drawing closer to the relationships he’s given us.
