Max Lucado – When You See God at Work

 

Listen to Today’s Devotion

When God responds to our specific prayer in specific ways, our faith grows.  The book of Genesis relates the wonderful prayer of Abraham’s servant.  He was sent to find a wife for Abraham’s son.

How does a servant select a wife for someone else?  This servant prayed about it.  “O Lord God of my master, Abraham.”  I am standing here beside this spring, and the young women of the town are coming out to draw water.  This is my request.  I will ask one of them, ‘Please give me a drink from your jug of water.’  If she says, ‘Yes, have a drink…let her be the one you have selected…”

The servant envisioned an exact dialog, and then he stepped forth in faith.  Scripture says, “Before he had finished speaking, Rebekah appeared (Genesis 24:15).  The servant offered a specific prayer and had an answered prayer.  Consequently, he saw God at work.  May you and I do the same!
