January 13 | Isaac and Rebekah

Using the daily reading prompts from George H. Guthrie’s Read the Bible for Life, here’s how to use this devotional:
  1. Bring your Bible!  Your kids need to see that everything you are reading to them or learning about comes from an actual Bible!
  2. Each day starts with a reading prompt.  Read the selection as a family.  If your kids are readers, encourage them to read along with you.
  3. After you’ve read the passage, read the short devotional thought that goes along with each passage.
  4. Prayer and application are important any time we read God’s word!  After each devotional, there is a challenge to help apply what your family has read that day.
  5. There is a reading for six days of the week.  The last reading of the week is a Gospel Conversation Prompt to help you connect the reading from the week with God’s plan for salvation.

Today’s Reading:

Read Genesis 24; 25:1934

As Isaac grew up, it was time for him to find a wife and get married. Remember how we learned that
Abraham had left his hometown and his family to go to a land that God was going to show him.

Abraham wanted Isaac’s wife to come from his hometown. So, he sent a servant back to Ur the land
where Abraham’s family was from to look for a wife for Isaac. The servant prayed and asked God to
help him find the right woman. God answered the prayer and the servant brought Rebekah back to
marry Isaac.

Isaac was waiting for the servant to return. Rebekah came with the servant and when she saw Isaac, she
got off of her camel and ran to him. Isaac and Rebekah got married.
God had provided for Isaac just like he always provided for Abraham.


Take time to thank God that he always provides for your needs as well.
