Day 3: Place of Direction

There are times on our journey when we need to stop and ask for direction.  I know asking for directions is sort of an “ancient phenomena”  for some of us with access to navigation systems in our cars and on our phones but God is still the same.  He wants us to come to Him and ask for direction when we need it.

If you are unsure about what career path to take or as a single who you should date…just ask. Maybe you are not certain about purchasing a new home or simply need direction for how to handle a difficult situation. , just ask! Regardless of how big or small the situation may be, it is ok to ask.

Sometimes we come to a fork in the road not knowing what direction we should go. God knows our lives from beginning to end.  He knows what direction we need to take because He knows exactly what we are made of and what we can handle!

Psalms 139: 13 (NIV)

For you created my inmost being;  you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

Genesis 24: 1-16 (NIV)

Abraham was now very old, and the Lord had blessed him in every way. He said to the senior servant in his household, the one in charge of all that he had, “Put your hand under my thigh. I want you to swearby the Lord the God of heaven and the God of earth, that you will not get a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I am living, will go to my country and my own relatives and get a wife for my son Isaac.” The servant asked him, “What if the woman is unwilling to come back with me to this land? Shall I then take your son back to the country you came from?”

“Make sure that you do not take my son back there,” Abraham said. “The Lord the God of heaven, who brought me out of my father’s household and my native land and who spoke to me and promised me on oath, saying, ‘To your offspring I will give this land’—He will send His angel before you so that you can get a wife for my son from there. If the woman is unwilling to come back with you, then you will be released from this oath of mine. Only do not take my son back there.” So the servant put his hand under the thigh of his master Abraham and swore an oath to him concerning this matter.

Then the servant left, taking with him ten of his master’s camels loaded with all kinds of good things from his master. He set out for Aram Naharaim and made his way to the town of Nahor. He had the camels kneel down near the well outside the town; it was toward evening, the time the women go out to draw water. Then he prayed, God of my master Abraham, make me successful today, and show kindness to my master Abraham. I am standing beside this spring, and the daughters of the townspeople are coming out to draw water. May it be that when I say to a young woman, ‘Please let down your jar that I may have a drink,’ and she says, ‘Drink, and I’ll water your camels too’—let her be the one you have chosen for your servant Isaac. By this I will know that you have shown kindness to my master.”

Before he had finished praying, Rebekah came out with her jar on her shoulder. She was the daughter of Bethuel son of Milkah, who was the wife of Abraham’s brother Nahor. The woman was very beautiful, a virgin; no man had ever slept with her. She went down to the spring, filled her jar and came up again.
