“I will go” – those are the words of Rebekah when Abraham’s servant said they needed to leave right away and that they couldn’t wait the 10 days that her family was requesting. Luckily, they were willing to ask her opinion and be okay letting that happen.
Rebekah was king and willing to serve Abraham’s servant even when she didn’t have to. Maybe it was just part of who she was to serve travelers she met at the well. Maybe that day, a though came to help this traveler in particular – and she did. She said the exact words in the exact order that he had barely finished praying for a women to say in order to know who should be Isaac’s wife.
They left, and Rebekah and Isaac loved each other – they had a good life. Rebekah struggled to get pregnant, but eventually did. She had twins – but there was a lot going on when she was pregnant with these babies and she sought the help of the Lord. He told her that the “elder shall serve the younger.”
This would come to pass many years later when the birthright was given to Jacob instead of Esau. Isaac thought he was giving the birthright to Esau, but it was Jacob – under the direction of Rebekah. However, instead of taking that blessing away, Isaac let Jacob keep those blessings and gave another to Esau.
Rebekah loved her son – and was worried for him when she found out that Esau was going to kill Jacob. She send Jacob to her brothers home to find a wife, and we don’t actually know if she ever saw him again.
She loved the Lord. Rebekah wanted to follow through with personal revelation, she wanted to serve, she was willing to go when asked, she wanted to do what she felt was right and she was blessed for doing that.
