Text: Genesis 24:1-53
#1 - Determine Your Present Position
Genesis 24:1 Abraham was now old and well advance in years, and the Lord had blessed him in every way.
1) Where am I now?
2) What would I like to change?
#2 - Be Specific About What You Want
Genesis 24:3-4 Don’t get a wife for my son from the Canaanite girls. Instead, go back to the land of my relatives and get a wife for my son.
1) What do I want to be?
2) What do I want to do?
3) What do I want to have?
4) Why do I want it?
#3 - Look for God’s Promise
Genesis 24:7 The Lord brought me from the land of my relatives to this land and He has solemnly promised me that He would give this land to my descendants.
#4 - Ask God to Help You
Genesis 24:12 “O Lord, God of my master, Abraham," he prayed. "Please give me success today, and show unfailing love to my master, Abraham."
Hebrews 4:16 So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God and there we will receive mercy and we will find grace to help us when we need it.
