As a new year begins, there is much to do and plenty we need to accomplish. If we are to
have a kingdom impact, we must seek God’s wisdom and guidance for our lives and where He
has placed us for service. That is what Abraham’s servant did when he was give the task of
finding a bride for Isaac. This was a huge assignment and so Eliezer prayed a specific prayer.
Genesis 24:12-14 NLT
O LORD, God of my master, Abraham,” he prayed. “Please give me success today, and show
unfailing love to my master, Abraham. See, I am standing here beside this spring, and the
young women of the town are coming out to draw water. This is my request. I will ask one of
them, ‘Please give me a drink from your jug.’ If she says, ‘Yes, have a drink, and I will water your
camels, too!’—let her be the one you have selected as Isaac’s wife. This is how I will know that
you have shown unfailing love to my master.
Eliezer received a precise answer to his prayer and then he worshiped the Lord for answered
The man bowed low and worshiped the LORD. “Praise the LORD, the God of my master, Abraham,” he said. “The LORD has shown unfailing love and faithfulness to my master, for he has led me straight to my master’s relatives.Genesis 24:26-27 (NLT)
As we strive to advance God’s kingdom during 2023, let’s seek His face in prayer and worship
Him for whatever answer He gives.
THE LORD IS OUR PROVIDER
