Genesis 23-24

And he lifted up his eyes and saw, and behold, there were camels coming. And Rebekah lifted up her eyes, and when she saw Isaac, she dismounted from the camel and said to the servant, “Who is that man, walking in the field to meet us?” The servant said, “It is my master.” So she took her veil and covered herself. And the servant told Isaac all the things that he had done. Then Isaac brought her into the tent of Sarah his mother and took Rebekah, and she became his wife, and he loved her.

Love at first site, more often than not, is not a matter of chance, at least it’s not if it works out for your good and God’s glory. If you want to find a godly wife or husband, or there’s something else you’re wanting in your life, don’t just walk around and hope it takes place out of thin air. If you want a better job, you have to look for it. If you want more knowledge, you have to work for it. If you want a godly mate, you have to put yourself in a position to cross their path. Far too often we complain about what we don’t have and yet we have never done the work to be able to receive such a blessing. The Christian’s walk is not one of just floating through life hoping things turn out for the best and wondering what tomorrow will bring, no, it is a daily struggle of discipline towards the goal of God’s upward calling, to walk worthy of Jesus. What are your goals? How are you accomplishing them? What godly desires has God placed on your heart and what are you doing to make those happen? The Christian life is not a passive life… get out there and make it happen!
