When the eldest servant of Abraham narrates to the family of Rebekah, the bride sought out for Abraham’s son, Isaac, he tells them of the concern that he had, which was “What if the bride to be refuses to come to wed Isaac, what then?” following with the confidence that Abraham his master had, in the Lord God. For Abraham’s response to the servant’s concern was that the Lord will send his angel with his servant and prosper his mission – a promise that Abraham could make because he saw the whole marriage of his son, with eyes of faith. He saw the invisible before it became evident and expresses that faith, calling attention to neither himself or his servant, but to the faithfulness of God.
Points to ponder:
Abraham promised his servant that his journey and mission would be a success. He had confidence in the Lord’s presence and provisions, seeing with eyes of faith. Do we have that level of confidence in God, wherein we can be assured of the invisible things of God coming true in our life and making our life’s mission a success? Our Master God is a promise keeping God and we can be confident of his presence and provisions in our life / life’s journey, when we see him and his master plan in action, with eyes of faith.
Genesis 24:40 (KJV)
