Scripture reading:          Genesis 23-24 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=genesis+23-24&version=NIV

“… and I bowed down and worshiped the LORD. I praised the LORD, the God of my master Abraham, who led me on the right road to get the granddaughter of my master’s brother for his son.”  Genesis 24:48

What an incredible recounting of the miraculous working of the LORD. All through the Bible, we see again and again how God is working His plan for His purpose. This servant is shown the mighty power of God. I wonder what he thought as he traveled. Abraham had been very clear in his instructions. Was the servant fearful of coming back without a wife? He had great riches with him. Was he concerned about getting it there? All the while he traveled, was he praying? Then he arrives and God is so gracious to answer the prayer even before it was finished. I don’t want to miss the fact that the prayer was offered in and came from the servant’s heart (24:45). God is ready to answer my prayers—even before I finish them. Am I careful to bow down and worship Him when He shows His miraculous hand?

Dear Lord, help me learn from the response of the servant. Help my heart to be a heart of prayer. Help me not try to solve my own problems and find my own solutions, but rather, to pray to You and wait for You to show Your mighty hand. Then, Lord, call me to fall down and worship You and to praise Your name. Amen.
