THEME: GOD ANSWERS PRAYERS
Genesis 24:12-15 NIV
“Then he prayed, “Lord, God of my master Abraham, make me successful today, and show kindness to my master Abraham. See, I am standing beside this spring, and the daughters of the townspeople are coming out to draw water. May it be that when I say to a young woman, ‘Please let down your jar that I may have a drink,’ and she says, ‘Drink, and I’ll water your camels too’—let her be the one you have chosen for your servant Isaac. By this I will know that you have shown kindness to my master.” Before he had finished praying, Rebekah came out with her jar on her shoulder. She was the daughter of Bethuel son of Milkah, who was the wife of Abraham’s brother Nahor.”
-Abraham built a relationship with his senior servant, possibly Eliezer of Damascus (Genesis 15:2). Probably because he was faithful and loyal, and had faith in God. When he got to the well at Nahor, he prayed to God. The Lord answered his prayers and that of his master Abraham and son Isaac, through his brothers Daughter, Rebekah. God is faithful to keep His promises. We find that through Abrahams seed Isaac, God’s promise of fruitfulness and multiplication came to pass. God is able to bless all those who are waiting on Him for spouses, at His appointed time. Our Lord is a promise keeping God, and He promises are yes and amen, and calls us to live by faith.
Lord You have instructed that the just shall live by faith. We shall live by faith in You dear Lord Jesus always, help us. You have said in Your word that none shall lack a mate for Your mouth has ordered and Your Spirit will gather them together. May You make a way Lord for all those who are waiting on You. May You level the mountains for all those are in the process of getting married. May You provide all their needs and desires. May You show Yourself strong even in the matter and deliver all from shame, we humbly call on You dear Lord Jesus. May You forgive us all our trespasses and sins and wash us with Your precious blood. We worship You dear Lord Jesus and give Your all the praise, and it is in Jesus Mighty name we pray trusting and believing. Amen
