The first and right response upon success


Genesis 24:26-27 records the response of the eldest servant of Abraham, who was on the mission to find a wife for Abraham’s son, Isaac. When he finds Rebekah to be the one, the very first thing the servant does is he bowed down his head and worshipped the Lord exclaiming that it was the Lord God who was the source of and reason for his success (Genesis 24:26-27).

Points to ponder:
Many a times, when we are faced with success, we often tend to forget that it is because of the hand of God that we can enjoy the sweetness of success. Some even write it off as the result of their hard work and skill and others tend to attribute their success foolishly to fate or coincidence. From this account we can learn that the first and right response upon success – any kind of success – is to bow down and worship the Lord for he is the source of and reason for our success i.e, it is the Lord who leads you and me to success. How do you deal with success?

Genesis 24:26-27 (KJV)
26 And the man bowed down his head, and worshipped the Lord.
27 And he said, Blessed be the Lord God of my master Abraham, who hath not left destitute my master of his mercy and his truth: I being in the way, the Lord led me to the house of my master’s brethren.
