As Abraham nears the end of his life, he has one urgent matter he needs resolved: he must find a wife for Isaac. Abraham does not want his son to take a wife from the Canaanite women, nor does he ever want him to return to his homeland. So, he sends one of his servants on a journey back to his homeland to find a wife from his kinsmen. The servant obeys and trusts the Lord’s guidance along the way. This servant prays, worships, and blesses the Lord at every important step. As the Lord guides, the servant encounters Rebekah, who would become Isaac’s bride. Even Laban’s response is perfect when he clearly sees this is the Lord’s doing.
Even in ordinary circumstances the Lord moves and works his plan. We must trust that he is leading us and working all things for his pleasure and our good. When we do, we can walk in faith like Abraham’s servant did.
Do you trust the Lord to order your steps?
