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. Gen. 25:21 NLT
The desire of Rebekah’s heart was to have children but she was barren! What could Isaac do? What would Isaac do??
SURPRISE! A husband actually cared enough about his wife’s desires, to go to the Lord in prayer on her behalf… not just an "add on" at meal time… “bless this food, and, O, yeah… bless my wife with a child”! No…Isaac went to the Lord in prayer and PLEADED with the Lord”!
Every marriage goes through some “barren” times! I don’t know why… perhaps its because the Lord wants us to be involved in the process of healing each other by praying for each other. As it is written...
"In the same way, you husbands must give honor to your wives. Treat your wife with understanding as you live together. She may be weaker than you are, but she is your equal partner in God’s gift of new life. Treat her as you should so your prayers will not be hindered." 1Pet. 3:7
Isaac treated Rebekah as he should have... and got… Another SURPRISE… God blessed this couple with a double portion... TWINS!
