Holy Matrimony

Re: Verse Reading–Genesis 24:34-67  (day one)
“The Lord, before whom I walk will send His angel with you and make your way successful.  You shall get a wife for my son. . . from my father’s house.”  (v 40)  By this point in the story, Abraham has walked with God for many years.  He was, in fact, still walking with God, still trusting for each step.  Confident that a new nation was God’s promise, Abraham knew that it was necessary to find Isaac a wife.  He also knew that God would not leave this important step to chance or choice or human wisdom.  He was absolutely certain of God’s help.  Scripture speaks of God’s call (and provision) for some to be single.  It also says that “He made a woman. . .and brought her to him”  (Genesis 2:22)  People who walk with God can be sure that He will “send His angel” with us as well.  When God is involved, we call it “holy” matrimony.
