Scripture Read Genesis 24-27
Nugget Genesis 24:6-8
“Abraham said to him, ‘See to it that you do not take my son back there. The LORD, the God of heaven, who took me from my father’s house and from the land of my birth, and who spoke to me and swore to me, “To your offspring I will give this land,” he will send his angel before you, and you shall take a wife for my son from there. But if the woman is not willing to follow you, then you will be free from this oath of mine; only you must not take my son back there.’”
Devotional thought: Presently residing in the promised land, Abraham has no desire to return to the place from which God had him leave. He has no desire for his son to return there either. Abraham displays Over-the-Horizon faith in what he asked his servant to do. By agreeing to do so, his servant displays Over-the-Horizon faith as well.
