Divine Guidance

“Then he prayed, “ Lord , God of my master Abraham, make me successful today, and show kindness to my master Abraham. See, I am standing beside this spring, and the daughters of the townspeople are coming out to draw water. May it be that when I say to a young woman, ‘Please let down your jar that I may have a drink,’ and she says, ‘Drink, and I’ll water your camels too’—let her be the one you have chosen for your servant Isaac. By this I will know that you have shown kindness to my master.” Before he had finished praying, Rebekah came out with her jar on her shoulder. She was the daughter of Bethuel son of Milkah, who was the wife of Abraham’s brother Nahor. The woman was very beautiful, a virgin; no man had ever slept with her. She went down to the spring, filled her jar and came up again. The servant hurried to meet her and said, “Please give me a little water from your jar.” “Drink, my Lord,” she said, and quickly lowered the jar to her hands and gave him a drink. After she had given him a drink, she said, “I’ll draw water for your camels too, until they have had enough to drink.” So she quickly emptied her jar into the trough, ran back to the well to draw more water, and drew enough for all his camels. Without saying a word, the man

watched her closely to learn whether or not the Lord had made his journey successful. Genesis 24:12‭-‬21 NIV https://bible.com/bible/111/gen.24.12-21.NIV”

I love how the Lord leads us and guides us to make the right choices if we incline our ear to Him, seek His face, and trust Him. I love love love how He is so willing to confirm things to us over and over again, too. Although, in the life of Abraham, i see that as His faith grew due to seeing the Lord fulfill so many seemingly impossible promises (the promised heir Isaac, the ram he provided in place of Isaac, the promised land etc), he needed less and less confirmation because He grew so familiar with the Lord’s voice. Even all of his plans were made with the promised land in mind because He knew that God would fulfill that promise. For example, he had Sarah buried in the promised land. Also when he sent his servant to find a wife for Isaac from his relatives, he told him that if she wasn’t willing to come to Caanan, he was then free from the oath because he didn’t want his son there because he needed to be in the promised land. This was the man who “believed God and it was credited to him as righteousness. “

  1. Wow Krystal amen! This is your cousin in law Jamie Randolph. I am just now seeing your blog for the first time! What a blessing. So many promises in the Lord are conditional and you confirmed that when you said, if we will incline our ear, seek His face and trust in Him, he will show us the right choices we should make. I long to have faith like Abraham and I can see you are growing so much in the Lord’s image! You’re such an encouragement and a faithful witness who will do all she can to stand in the face of adversity.

  2. Krystal, thank you for this message. What I got from it is that what we truly believe in our hearts will be revealed and evidenced through our actions. We may say we believe in Jesus and his salvation. We may think that we do. But, our actions tell the true story. They tell what we really believe. Love you! Mom

    Krystal loves Jesus Christ. She loves His Word and her times with Him in prayer, in worship, in song and in the teachings of scripture. Here she shares with us what the Lord is teaching her during her personal times of worship with Him.
