Daily Fountain 2017 - Prepared For The Master's Use

Tuesday July 4

Bible Reading:     Gen. 24: 15 - 28
Topic:                  Prepared For The Master's Use

Rebekah appeared almost immediately after Abraham's servant prayed for God's guidance and help.

Though Rebekah was beautiful, the servant knew that the task ahead required much more than physical beauty.

She passed the servant's test with flying colours, by showing kindness, hospitality and care for a traveller she didn't know. She saw people in need and inconvenienced herself to help them.

We need to always remind ourselves that God desires the very best for every one of His children (Jer. 29: 11; 3 John 2). Unfortunately we often miss out on God's blessings because we ignore opportunities to obey His command to love and care for the vulnerable amongst us, which will be one of the yardsticks for judgement when He returns in glory as Matt. 25: 31 - 46 clearly teaches.

Unlike many Church folks who fail to involve God in their everyday lives, Abraham's faithful servant had no doubt that his meeting with Rebekah was ordained by God and he was quick to return all the glory to Him (v. 27)

God desires that we trust Him with our very own lives, only then can we truly see His Glory

Help me, dear Lord, to never lose sight of the fact that I was created for the display of the beauty of Christ with which you have decorated my life, Amen.

Memory Verse             Gen. 24: 27
"And he (Abraham's Servant) said Blessed be the Lord, God of my Master Abraham, Who hath not left destitute my Master of His mercy and His truth; I being the in the way the Lord led me to the house of my Master's brethren."
