Assigned Scripture Reading: Romans 15:13; Genesis 24-25; Isaiah 65:24; Hebrews 11; John 8:56

Study Assignments:

– Slowly and thoroughly read Genesis 24:1-9. Consider the urgency of Abraham’s words to his servant regarding Isaac and the land from which he [Abraham] came. Write down your thoughts on the lesson this holds for you.

– Do some exploratory research on Mesopotamia and Negev.

– Complete a Spiritual Life Fitness journal entry on the following words taken from Genesis 24:27b: “…the LORD…who has guided me in the way…”

– Describe some of the characteristics of Rebekah. Relate your findings to self.

– Define the word prostrate. (Be sure to refer to the depth of its meaning in the Hebrew.)

– Study the name Jehovah Jireh.

– This week, as you are studying the lesson, make it a point each day to literally bow low and worship the LORD.

Deeper Thinking:

1) What is the life of a servant all about in Jesus Christ?

2) To date, what have you learned about the significance of practicing prayer and meditation before, during and even after events in your life?

3) In recounting his experience and the expectation of his master, Abraham’s servant was noted to speak of the LORD God. Why is this significant to know?

4) Have you remained true to the task(s) that the LORD has given you to do? Why or why not?

5) How can you be sure what comes from the LORD and what does not come from Him?
