Today’s Deeply Rooted Devotion is from Genesis 24-26.
“Then the man knelt low, worshiped the Lord, and said, “Blessed be the Lord, the God of my master Abraham, who has not withheld his kindness and faithfulness from my master. As for me, the Lord has led me on the journey to the house of my master’s relatives.” Genesis 24:26-27, CSB
Has your timing ever been off? I enjoyed playing the trumpet in middle school and high school and still enjoy playing percussion. A listener can always tell when a musicians timing is off. When a musicians timing is off it negatively affects the rest of the band and the the whole experience for a listener. I’m thankful that the Lords timing is never off.
Genesis 24-26 remind us, once again, that God is the star of the story. He is the main character and the One who is in control. His timing is perfect. Genesis 24 introduces us to Rebekah, Isaacs future wife. In this chapter God puts His providence on perfect display. Rebekah shows a willingness to follow the Lords timing and provision (Genesis 24:58). Meanwhile, Esau shows us an example of someone who is focused on the physical realities of life more than the spiritual ones (Genesis 25).
What do you value most in your life, the physical or the spiritual?
How are you seeing the Lords timing and provision in your life? Thank Him for caring for you in those ways. Like Rebekah, will you submit to His perfect timing and provision?
