“Then Laban and Bethuel replied, ‘The Lord has obviously brought you here,
so there is nothing we can say.’”
God does not hide Himself. On the contrary, He desires that His work in our lives be obvious, both to us and to those around us. That fact was evident in the story of Abraham’s servant who had been sent on a mission to find a wife for Isaac.
The miracles unfold in this story without any effort on the servant’s part, except to believe. When he reached the well outside the town of Abraham’s relatives, he asked God a simple request. Before he even finished praying, Abraham’s niece arrived and fulfilled every detail of his prayer. Realizing God’s obvious miracle, the servant immediately bowed in worship.
When Rebekah ran home to tell her family about the man at the well, it was obvious to them that God was at work. Her brother Laban rushed out to meet the servant, acknowledging him as “…you who are blessed by the Lord!” Later as the servant told his story at dinner, both Laban and his father agreed, “The Lord has obviously brought you here, so there is nothing we can say.”
When we simply believe, GOD’s blessings in our lives will be obvious. And as it was with the servant, may those obvious blessings bring an immediate response…worship!
