Now Isaac, having been gazing down the path each day, sees the camels coming. He catches a glimpse of a gorgeous young woman sitting on the camel’s back just before she covers her face with a veil.
Eliezer stood at the well and prayed, “Let the girl to whom I say, ‘Please lower your water jug so that I may drink,’ and who responds, ‘Drink, and I’ll water your camels also’ — let her be the one you have appointed for your servant Isaac’” (Genesis 24:14).
A girl approached. Eliezer made the request. The thirsty 10 Camels sucked up the water in seconds after each bucket was emptied in the trough before them. The girl ran back and forth, back and forth, from the well. But she didn’t slow her pace until every camel had filled his 25 gallon stomach.
Isaac helped the brave Rebecca down from the camel. They went to his tent. The arrangements were made and they were married. Many ups and downs followed, but the God who had brought them together was always there for them.
We learn from this intriguing story that God has a plan for each of our lives. He even wants to arrange who we should marry. Yes, an arranged marriage by none other than our Father God. The Lord wants to guide our steps through life. He wants to be there for us. Furthermore, the Lord is preparing a bride, his church, to meet him in the clouds at the appointed time and then live forever with him. Are you spiritually ready? Are you a part of that bride?
