Strong with Age
Genesis 24:1-14 Now Abraham was old, well advanced in years. And the LORD had blessed Abraham in all things...
Genesis 24:1-14think about it.
What is Abraham's big concern here? Why is this choice such an issue for him? Abraham's servant seemed to have a faith like his master's. How do you see that in action? What kind of faith are you modeling for those around you?
I love everything about Abraham that I see in Genesis 24:1-14. He's an old man and he's still dead on with the Lord. Without any sign of wavering he sends his servant to find a wife for Isaac because he continues to take God at his word. The servant questions Abraham about his task and there's not even a hint of doubt in Abraham's response. "The Lord, the God of heaven, who took me from my father's house and from the land of my kindred, and who spoke to me and swore to me, 'To your offspring I will give this land,' he will send his angel before you, and you shall take a wife for my son from there" (vs 7).
So what does Abraham show us about trust and faith here in Genesis 24:1-14? Tami W.
P.S. Have you had any "no waver" faith situations like Abraham? I've had some (needing to sell a house, unexpected job loss, health problems) and just thinking back on them can be such a source of strength when challenges come my way. So if you're up for it, tell us about one of your faith experiences as an encouragement today.
