Tuesday – Pentateuch
Reading – Genesis 24
“One evening as he was walking and meditating in the fields, he looked up and saw the camels coming.”
Genesis 24:63 NLT
Through the wording of this verse, we can assume with some degree of accuracy that walking in the fields and meditating was a common occurrence for Isaac.
That, in itself, does not mean that it is a good idea for us to follow his example.
But then you step back and take a look at the whole chapter.
Isaac is about to get a wife through obviously divine intervention.
Did the walking and meditating have anything to do with that?
Maybe not but
living a lifestyle that leaves room for prayer and contemplation certainly leaves room for God to speak and act.
I admit that this is a lesson that I need to learn.
I do spend time in the Word of God and praying. But it is usually at least somewhat rushed. I need to find the time for regular contemplation.
Perhaps in a field.
Or a trail.
Or where ever I can find a place of peace.
Do you get a regular time of contemplation or meditation without rush or time limitation?
If you do, how have you seen God move in those times?
If not, what steps can you take to create that time?
