“And I bowed my head and worshiped the Lord, and blessed the Lord God of my master Abraham, who had led me in the way of truth” (Gen 24:38)

After Eliezer meet her family explaining the purpose of his visit, Rebekah agrees to follow him. He had favor with her family. Clearly, God has made his journey successful. Only God could have done this! No one can resist a man true servant of God!

Please observe that Eliezer is not passive but he co-operates, moves on lead by the Holy Spirit. He is not rebellious to his master and mentor. He is not selfish. Even when the host offers him food, he refuses to sit down and eat until he is sure that his master’s need is taken care of. His trip is not what we generally call a miracle. There are not supernatural manifestations during the journey. The secret of his success is total obedience to the leading of the Holy Spirit from beginning to end. That obedience is the miracle! Please take note that the Holy Spirit is ‘a practical’ Spirit. He does not lead Eliezer to the desert or to wrong paths, but to the well where the girls come to draw water in the evening. The Holy Spirit knows the place and the hour for your miracle! Just follow! Eliezer prays specifically for a godly, generous, friendly, humble and hard working girl. He is a servant of God and he prays for a girl who has a servant’s heart too. God answers his prayer much more than he could have imagined. The beautiful Rebekah is all that he desires for his master’s son, and so much more. He is a patient man too. Even when he thinks that Rebekah is the right girl, he still waits, praying. Once the Holy Spirit confirms his lead, he falls down and worships God openly and gratefully for the success of his journey. A servant of God is a true worshiper of God!

The greatest lesson here is that a servant of God is always successful! Another lesson is that if you follow the leading of the Holy Spirit you can never fail! God will give you success! Lastly, we are commanded to have the same attitude like Jesus who chose to come as a servant of God sent by the Father. He was obedient unto death, even death on the cross. He is the King -Servant, the Lion- Lamb. That is why He was exalted above all creation, above every other name (Phil 2:5-11).

In Christ I declare:

I am a servant of God!

I obey God’s Word and the leading of His Spirit!

I shall be successful!

I shall marry well!

I shall pray always waiting for God’s confirmation!

In Jesus name
