Hebrews 11:20 (CSB)

2. Acknowledges My Wins and Losses

When the men of the place asked about his wide he said, “She is my sister,” for he was afraid to say, “my wife,” thinking, “the men of the place will kill me on account of Rebekah, for she is a beautiful woman.” When Isaac had been there for some time, Abimelech king of the Philistines looked down from the window and was surprised to see Isaac caressing his wife Rebekah. Abimelech sent for Isaac and said, “So she is really your wide! How could you say, “She is my sister’?” Isaac answered him, “Because I thought I might die on account of her.”
Genesis 26:7-9 (CSB)

From there he went up to Beer-sheba and the Lord appeared to him that night and said, “I am the God of your father Abraham. Do not be afraid, for I am with you. I will bless you and multiply your offspring because of my servant Abraham. So he built an alter there, called on the name of the Lord, and pitched his tent here. Isaac’s servants also dug a well there.
Genesis 26:23-25 (CSB)

3. Celebrates My Strengths and Weaknesses

But the herdsmen of Gerar quarreled with Isaac’s herdsmen and said, “The water us ours!” So he named the well Esek because they argued with him. Then they dug another well and quarreled over that one also, so he named it Sitnah. He moved from there and dug another, and they did not quarrel over it. He named it Rehoboth and said, “For now the Lord has made space for us, and we will be fruitful in the land.”
Genesis 26:20:22 (CSB)
