The Marriage of Rebekah and Isaac
Abraham asked his servant to return to the homeland to find a wife for Isaac so that Isaac would not marry a Caanite woman. The servant went to the town of Nahor in Mesopotamia -- over 500 miles away.
When the servant Eliezer arrived at a well in Nahor, he prayed to God for a successful journey. The prayer included a very specific sign that the right woman would be found -- she would offer him a drink and alsot to watter 10 camels.
A woman came to the well and followed the spedific sign. Eliezer gave her a nose ring and gold bracelet. She ran to her mother's home to tell her family. They all agreed that she would go to Isaac and they were married before Sarah. Soon after, Sarah died.
In Reflections of Genesis, blogger Carol writes: God truly does honor very specific and sincere prayers. His beautiful provision to Eliezer’s prayer left no doubt that God was also answering one of Abraham’s last prayers for the future of his son. If you have not tried praying in the specific state, next time you pray give God some details to work with. I think you will be pleasantly surprised at His response. Intimate details are God’s specialty. Get intimate with God, go ahead ... He’s waiting for you! .
