Seeking Answers from God
Genesis 24:63 (KJB) And Isaac went out to meditate in the field at the eventide: and he lifted up his eyes, and saw, and, behold, the camels were coming.
Isaac went out in the evening towards the end of the day looking for a place of quiet and solitude to meditate without potential distractions or interruption. Isaac found a quiet place near the well in the field to communicate with God.
In the distance, as he was talking with a God camels appeared on the horizon. This was the divine arrival of Rebecca who was to be his future wife.
Isaac lifted prayers to God and it seems immediately God answered him. While the Bible is certainly not clear of exactly what Isaac had prayed to God, prayer was certainly a priority in Isaacs life. He chose to end this day in silent communication with God.
Rebecca was certainly an answer to his prayer. Likely Isaac had sought the intervention of God many times of prayer and had brought this situation before God many times. God saw fit to send an answer on this specific evening.
