“Go instead to my homeland, to my relatives, and find a wife there for my son Isaac.” (Genesis 24:4 NLT).


Abraham instructed his most faithful servant to go to his homeland and find a wife for Isaac, his son. In this narrative a picture of God the Father sending the Spirit to the Bride of Christ, which is the Church, might be seen. Like the Spirit, the servant is fully obedient. He goes where the father sent him, he says what the father told him, and he finds a bride for the son from the father’s own family. Yes, this is a beautiful picture of the Spirit’s work on behalf of the Father, the Son and the Church.
What a faithful Servant is the Holy Spirit! He finds us and prepares us for Jesus, the Son of the Father.
PRAYER: Lord, thank You for Your Spirit. He is our Comforter and Advocate. He helps us and comes alongside us and lives within us to seal and keep us. Dear Spirit, lead, guide and direct us today. In Jesus name, Amen.
