Daily Fountain 2017 - Commit Your Ways To The Lord

Monday July 3

Bible Reading:     Gen. 24: 1 - 14
Topic:                  Commit Your Ways To The Lord

Abraham's servant had just been saddled with a very difficult. sensitive but definite task which called for a definite result.

Humanly speaking, it was virtually an impossible mission, failure of which would likely truncate the flow of the family's covenant relationship with God.

He left under oath, fully prepared for the mission, but knowing that he was not really qualified in himself to deliver accordingly. Thankfully, growing up in Abraham's household, Abraham's faith in God had positively impacted his own life.

At that well in the city of Nahor, he prayed a simple prayer of faith and waited (vs. 12 - 14)

Today Christians do not necessarily need to pray in the manner that Abraham's servant did, when faced with difficult situations and decisions. We should rather learn to take seriously the admonition in Prov. 3: 5 - 6; Psa. 37: 5

Absolute trust in God's ability and faithfulness to help us navigate the many difficult terrains of life will help us avert unnecessary heartaches which failure in our life's missions will bring on us.

Help me dear Lord, to always acknowledge You in all my ways, so I may not ever lose my bearing in life, Amen.

Memory Verse             Gen. 24: 4
"But thou shalt go unto my country, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son Isaac."
