She Went to God

When there is a problem, who do you go to first? When you do not understand something, to whom do you turn? When Rebekah became pregnant, it was a great answer to the prayers of Isaac. However, there was a fight going on in her womb. Jacob and Esau were getting ready for what would continue throughout their life.

Rebekah was so upset by this situation that she questioned living any further. It was too much to endure. I could not imagine the pain of two babies fighting from within the womb. A normal kick alone could be painful but this was a war from inside.

Immediately “she went to God to find out what was going on.” She didn’t seek help elsewhere. She didn’t go to a friend or neighbor. She didn’t go to a midwife. She went to God. It’s the same action we should take when we face a situation, whether it is a war from within, a loss of employment, an illness, or anything and everything else you may face. The bottom line is go to God. Today. Tomorrow. Always.

“Isaac prayed hard to God for his wife because she was barren. God answered his prayer and Rebekah became pregnant. But the children tumbled and kicked inside her so much that she said, ‘If this is the way it’s going to be, why go on living?’ She went to God to find out what was going on. God told her,

Two nations are in your womb,
two peoples butting heads while still in your body.
One people will overpower the other,
and the older will serve the younger.”

– Genesis 25:21-23 [MSG]
