Rebekah lifted up her eyes, and when she saw Isaac she dismounted from the camel. She said to the servant, “Who is that man walking in the field to meet us?” And the servant said, “He is my master.” Then she took her veil and covered herself. The servant told Isaac all the things that he had done. Then Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah’s tent, and he took Rebekah, and she became his wife, and he loved her; thus Isaac was comforted after his mother’s death.
God provided a wife for Abraham’s son Isaac through miraculous answers to his servant’s. I love the faithfulness of this unnamed servant. He is prayerful, insightful and wise. When Laban tries to delay the fulfillment of the servant’s mission, to bring Rebekah back, the servant says ‘no, today is the day’. This is the same Laban who would deceive Jacob into marrying Leah and cause his to serve an extra seven years for Rachel. Because he completed this wonderful service to his master, the plan of God continued to unfold. This is what it really means to “see”!
How faithful of a servant am I? Am I prayerful, insightful, and wise?
