“And they called Rebekah, and said unto her, Wilt thou go with this man? And she said, I will go.”
She was willing to go where she felt the Lord was leading her.
When she gave Abraham’s servant and his camels drink, she was ignorant of the significance of her actions.
She simply did what she felt led to do, unaware that what she did was an answer to someone else’s prayer.
“And before I had done speaking in mine heart, behold, Rebekah came forth with her pitcher on her shoulder; and she went down unto the well, and drew water: and I said unto her, Let me drink, I pray thee.”
The servant came to her mother’s house where her brother, Laban, greeted him. After he came in, he began to tell the family the details of how he met Rebekah at the well, and the importance of his quest to find her.
He praised the Lord for His direction, then asked the family to oblige him taking her back to his master.
“And I bowed down my head, and worshipped the LORD, and blessed the LORD God of my master Abraham, which had led me in the right way to take my master's brother's daughter unto his son. And now if ye will deal kindly and truly with my master, tell me: and if not, tell me; that I may turn to the right hand, or to the left.”
Their response was favorable, but they requested that she stay with them a certain number of days before she goes. The servant began to plead with them that they must return now.
The family gave Rebekah the choice.
She was willing to go.
Many blessings awaited her because of her willingness to do what the Lord had purposed for her.
“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.”
Rebekah also serves as an example of what grace can be found when we are simply willing to go as the Lord directs.
“I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.”
“Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.”
Our willingness to go shows our love for Him.
Isaiah 59-60 | John 3 | Psalm 11-12
