Friday, January 11th: Genesis 24:52-26:16; Matthew 8:18-34; Psalm 10:1-15; Proverbs 3:7-8

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Genesis 24:52-26:16; Matthew 8:18-34; Psalm 10:1-15; Proverbs 3:7-8

“So they called Rebekah. “Are you willing to go with this man?” they asked her. And she replied, “Yes, I will go.”
Genesis 24:57-58

I can imagine all the things Rebekah must have been feeling, probably a lot of fear. She had no idea who this servant was, and no idea who this man was that she would marry. She was probably sad to leave her family, knowing she would likely never see them again. Yet, Rebekah listened to God, and even given an opportunity to back out, she said: “Yes, I will go.”

We need to try to be like Rebekah in this story. We need to put our fears, anger, and sadness away, and we need to put our trust in God. Instead of worrying about all the things that could go wrong, say: “Yes, God, I will go.” Trust that God will provide, and that no matter what is a part of His plan for you, He is with you every step of the way.
