Daily Devotional: God’s Guidance 101

PrayerConversationGenesis 24:12

~Then he prayed, “O Lord, God of my master Abraham, give me success today, and show kindness  to my master Abraham~

When we face a decision that requires God’s clear guidance, the way to begin is with faith and prayer.

Faith energizes our prayers, and prayer communicates our concerns and requests to God.

The story recorded here in Genesis 24 illustrates how the two work together. Eliezer was on a special mission given to him by his master Abraham, the great pioneer of faith. His goal was to find a wife for Isaac from among Abraham’s clan. Not trusting in his own wisdom, Eliezer looked to God for direction, trusting him to give the needed guidance. Eliezer’s specific prayer of faith opened the door for God to speak to him in an astounding manner that left no doubt that it was God who was directing him.

Are you looking for direction? Keep in mind who god is. Declare your confidence in him, and trust him to guide you.
