As believers, we are God’s children. A child of God will reflect His character. Each week, we focus on one scripture while highlighting a declaration (Who God is) and affirmation (Who we are as believers).
This week’s scripture is:
Isaac pleaded with the Lord on behalf of his wife, because she was unable to have children. The Lord answered Isaac’s prayer, and Rebekah became pregnant with twins.Genesis 25:21 NLT
God is responsive.
I can talk to God about anything on my heart.
Isaac knew that God had promised him descendants as numerous as the stars, just like his father, Abraham. Yet, he didn’t respond like his father who tried to circumvent God. Isaac prayed to God on behalf of his wife, Rebekah, for children. God responded…with double. Isaac knew that he could trust God to respond to his prayers and we can too. We just have to be willing and vulnerable enough to share our whole hearts with the Lord.
A Prayer Starter…
Heavenly Father, You know the deepest desires of my heart. You even know when I withhold things from you. Lord, your word says that you listen and respond to your children. Please help me to hear your response above all else… In Jesus’ name. Amen.
