Found in Genesis 24, the story of Abraham sending Eliezer to find a bride for his son, Isaac, is one of my favorite Bible passages. As the servant prepares for his journey to a far country, Abraham says in verse seven, “The LORD God of heaven….shall send his angel before thee, and thou shalt take a wife unto my son from thence.”
God always prepares the circumstances for His will to be accomplished. If there is something God would have me to do, He will prepare the way. His timing will be perfect, the people around me selected by Him. As I study God’s Word and seek His face in prayer, I may rest in Him, realizing that He can arrange things far better than I ever could!
Just as Abraham was seeking the best for his son, so I do for our daughters. May this truth give me peace not only in my own life, but also as I entrust their future to His plan.
