SPUNKY WOMAN – Genesis 24 etc.
Rebekah was a woman with spunk, tenacity, or courage.
In Genesis 24:1-9 Abraham sends his servant to find a wife for Isaac.
In Genesis 24:10-14 that servant is asking God to send a woman with spunk. This is exactly the type of woman he got for good and bad.
REBEKAH’S DETERMINATION Genesis 24:14-26
Watering the camels was no easy task, but she stuck with it.
REBEKAH’S DECISION Genesis 24:35-53
She decided to go, and to go quickly to be Isaac’s bride. She evidently knew how to determine God’s will for her life.
REBEKAH’S DISCERNMENT Genesis 25:1-3
When Rebekah did not understand what was going on inside of her she went to God and asked Him.
REBEKAH’S DEVOTION Genesis 25:24-28
There was unnecessary division in this family.
Favorites should never have been chosen, but at least Rebekah was devoted to the individual God had chosen.
REBEKAH’S DECEIT Genesis 27:1-16
If spunky people are not careful, they can become deceptive people. Rebekah’s deception resulted in Jacob running for his life, and never seeing his mother again.
