The God of My Master

In Genesis 24 Abraham sends his servant to find a bride for his son Isaac. He assures him that the angel of the Lord will go ahead of him on the journey and bring him success. True to Abraham’s word, the hand of the Lord caused a fortuitous meeting between him and Rebekah who became Isaac’s wife.

Genesis 24:48 highlights the servants response to the favour of the Lord. It reads as follows:

“And I bowed down my head, and worshipped the LORD, and blessed the LORD God of my master Abraham, which had led me in the right way to take my master’s brother’s daughter unto his son”

The servant refers to the Lord, as the Lord and God of his master Abraham. This was Abraham’s most trusted servant who had charge of all that he owned. I am certain that he saw the hand of the Lord move many times in the life of Abraham. This event, was yet another in support of the intimate friendship that God had with Abraham, and the great love that he had for him. When the servant saw the supernatural hand of God intervene for the sake of His friend, he had no other response but to worship!

I wonder how many of us live lives of such intimate friendships with God, that other’s come to know God, through that very friendship. When others witness a divine act in that relationship, they have no option to say: “Yip, that is the God of Susan all-right!” Essentially our friendship with God, becomes the catalyst for others to recognise His existence and divine nature. And, as with Abraham’s servant, those who recognise Him, have no option but to worship Him, and acknowledge Him as their own.

Have a blessed day!
