The twenty-fourth chapter of Genesis contains a timeless tale of a father, his son, a bride, and the servant who guides her. It is where we find the account of Rebekah's journey to her betrothed, Isaac, across wide and uncertain terrain. But this story is much more than a biblical history lesson. It is also a retelling and foretelling of our own Spirit-led trek toward the Sonatop some unsightly and uncomfortable, but nonetheless God-ordained, beasts of burden. In The Camels Are Coming, read what Nelson learned about why God allows us to experience troubles and how He desires to bring us through them.
