It should be an encouragement to everyone that not all of God’s workers are famous historical figures. Some of them, like Isaac, are unassuming people walking with God in quiet, but assured faith. Isaac’s name is known by the world. After all, the Lord is often referred to as the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, but the vast majority of God’s faithful workers are unknown . . . at least to the world and even to other Christians. But, they are known by God. They are unassuming men and women who have not sought, nor have they been gifted with the spotlight of historical fame. They have quietly and confidently lived their lives in an effort to please God and rejoice in the Lamb that took their place.
