God Teaches us to Create a Step-by-step Plan. Eliezer designed a simple but well-thought plan to find Isaac's wife. He took ten of Abraham's camels with him, loaded with samples of the best of everything Abraham owned. He journeyed to Nahor and then made the camels kneel down outside the town beside a well. Eliezer then prayed, "O Lord, God of my master, Abraham This is my request. When a young woman comes to draw water, I will say to her, "Please give me a little drink of water from your jug.' If she says, "Yes, have a drink, and I will draw water for your camels, too,' let her be the one you have selected to be the wife of my master's son." (Genesis 24:42-44 NLT) Now this was a big deal because camels can drink a lot of water. So that meant the woman would have to draw 20, 30, maybe 40 buckets of water. That's a serious commitment. And that's the kind of woman Eliezer was looking for - a woman who was kind, generous, had a servant's heart, was willing to help someone in need and would go the extra mile. And you know what? His plan worked. A woman named Rebekah offered Eliezer a drink of water and then she offered to water his camels also. Ask yourself two questions: 1) How do I intend to get there once I know what my goal is? 2) How long will it take? You can either drift through life or you can be directed through life by taking the time to think through where God wants you to be. Is your future worth the effort? Yes, absolutely!


““And this day I came to the well and said, ‘O Lord God of my master Abraham, if You will now prosper the way in which I go, behold, I stand by the well of water; and it shall come to pass that when the virgin comes out to draw water, and I say to her, “Please give me a little water from your pitcher to drink,” and she says to me, “Drink, and I will draw for your camels also,”—let her be the woman whom the Lord has appointed for my master’s son.’”

‭‭Genesis‬ ‭24:42-44‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
