    Flow Through Me from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about something that is at the very core of knowing Jesus: the Holy Spirit. This is fundamental stuff, but sometimes we build our doctrines so high that we can no longer see the foundation, yet it is very important tha...

    But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; Isaiah 64:6 KJVAs the preacher looked over the congregation, pondering his next victim, I sank lower and lower in my chair. He always chose someone at random from the congregation to pray, so everyone tried to avoid ...

    Walking by the sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers: Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew, his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. He said to them, 'Come after me, and I will make you fishers for men.' They immediately left their nets and followed him. Matthew 4:18 WEBAs J...

The Unnamed Servant

  • Let it happen, that the young lady to whom I will say, 'Please let down your pitcher, that I may drink,' then she says, 'Drink, and I will also give your camels a drink,''let her be the one you have appointed for your servant Isaac. By this I will know that you have shown kindness to my master. Before he had finished speaking, behold, Rebekah came out. Genesis 24:14 WEB

    This man was a servant of Abraham, sent on a quest by his master, and is not even named in scripture. He is merely called 'The servant.' In Genesis 24, this servant traveled to Nahor to find a wife for Isaac. He stopped at a well just outside the city with his ten camels, and he prayed for success. He asked the Lord for a sign: That the right girl would come by and offer to draw water for his ten camels, which could drink up to twenty gallons each (That is 200 gallons of water!).Before he had finished speaking, Rebekah came out with her water jar on her shoulder, and did just as he had asked.

    I find it comforting that the Lord heard the prayer of the servant. Abraham is the 'Chosen One' in this story. Yet, the Lord answered this servant's prayer to the letter, while he was still praying it.

    When I first began attending church and learning about Jesus, I felt that I was insignificant. It seemed that the pastor and the elders were on God's inner circle and they always seemed to have a word from the Lord, while I must have been on the outer ring. I believed that God knew 'about me' but I was unsure that He actually knew me by name.

    Then He began showing up in my work place, and people began to get saved around me. He would show up in smoky bars where I was playing music and give me scriptures and words of knowledge for people. Yea I know, it was hard for me to believe as well at the beginning. As my church row filled with new visitors, the pastor and elders began asking me what I had heard from the Lord during the week.

    The world always has a class system that ranks people according to their status or position. When Jesus came to earth, He ignored all of that, and He began to eat with the sinners, the tax collectors, and the servants. The 'King of All Kings' had friends in low places.

    Never think that you are insignificant or that the Lord does not hear you because you are not the 'Chosen One' for He hears the prayers of the servants as well. Take it one day at a time and include Him in your life. You don't need to understand it all yet. Just let your relationship with Him grow over time. In His eyes, we are all His children, and if He has done it for someone else, He will do it for you.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for all that You have done for me. Please help my faith grow and lead me into spiritual adventures with You. Speak to me and through me Lord, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." (2 Chron 7:14). If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network
