The Right Decision - Bro. T. Stephen

My Dear Brothers and Sisters, I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.  The blessed word  that  God  has  given  for  you  today  is  from the book of Genesis 24:56-58 But he said to them, “Do not hinder since the Lord, has prospered my way, send me away that I may go to my Master.” So they called Rebekah and said to her “Will you go with this man? And she said I will go”.

Abraham’s servant Eliezer, put the nose ring on her nose and the bracelets on her wrists.   Both Laban, and Bethuel  agreed to give away  Rebekah to be the wife of Abraham’s son Isaac.  Therefore Eliezer bowed   before the Lord,  for  having led him in the way of truth. He then presented all kinds of jewels, and gave them to Rebekah. The members of the family wanted to   retain   Rebekah for about ten days. Then Eliezer spoke the above words. “Do not hinder since the Lord, has prospered my way, send me away that I may go to my Master.”

Laban  and other members of  her family asked her if she was willing to go along with  Eliezer to her  husband’s house. So they called Rebekah and said to her “Will you go with this man? And She said I will go. By this she was giving her consent to marry Isaac. She was decent and modest in behaviour. And she was expressive of her agreeing to go with the man (Eliezer) She did not object to their request. Rather she had a strong inclination, to the proposal. And she was determined on it. And perhaps was under a divine impulse,   which strongly wrought upon her  and caused her to be so willing to leave her own people and her father’s house.

After the death of his mother,  Isaac needed someone to comfort him. He waited  patiently for the right time. And as he expected God blessed him with Rebekah to be his wife. She became his wife and he loved her. Hence  Isaac was comforted after his mother’s death.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,  when  you make the right decision  like Rebekah, you shall be surely blessed. She was humble and diligent. She knew the importance of marriage and had the responsibility to make the right choice.  She was willing to leave her father’s house and move forward to her husband’s house. She gladdened the hearts of her family members. That’s  why Laban blessed his sister  saying, “May you become the mother of thousands of ten thousands.” God will bless you also as He blessed Rebekah.  All that you got to do is to wait on the Lord, and make the right decision in your life. In all your ways, acknowledge Him and  He shall direct your path.  God says, I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go. I will guide you with My eye. He will perfect that which concerns you.

God bless you. 


Our   loving   heavenly Father,  we thank You for this blessed day.  Lord teach us to be humble and be diligent like Rebekah.  Help us to make the right decision in our life. Thank you Lord for revealing to us the way of truth.  May we be obedient and dedicated in our work like Eliezer.   Lord  lead  us  in the way of righteousness,  for we commit our future in Your blessed hands.   In Jesus name we pray.
