All you really want is God’s approval of your plans. God reveals His will to those who are committed to doing it.
Often it is more difficult to go this route than it is to operate on the basis of human wisdom.
They were a rebellious bunch who were not inclined to endure the hardship necessary to fulfill God’s purpose.
They put comfort for themselves ahead of obedience to God’s will.
That is the basic principle in determining the will of God in any situation--to empty yourself, as much as you are able, of your own will and to commit yourself to seeking and obeying God’s will.The servant asks a practical question: “Suppose the woman will not be willing to follow me to this land; should I take your son back to the land from where you came? Abraham strongly warns him against doing that and repeats God’s call and promise to give him the land of Canaan.So the servant swears to do what Abraham has said (24:6-9).We could study the chapter as an illustration of God the Father (Abraham) sending the Holy Spirit (the servant) to seek a bride (Rebekah = the church) for His Son (Isaac) who had just been through death and resurrection (chapter 22).But I’m going to approach the text by gleaning some principles of divine guidance.
