Pray For Qarah Today

June 27, 2011

This is an incredibly short devotion today but very powerful.  It is powerful to note the importance of first mention in the Bible.  Whenever a word is first mentioned in the Bible there is usually a special significance and lesson that we can learn.  So the first occurrence of the word qarah is found in Genesis 24 when Abraham sent his unnamed servant to look for a bride for Isaac, his son.

There were so many young women to choose from that the servant had to stop for the evening.  The servant did not know who would be the right one for Isaac.  So the unnamed servant prayed this prayer: “O Lord God of my master Abraham, please give me success this day, and show kindness to my master Abraham.”

The word “success” here is the Hebrew word qarah, and this is the first time it appears in the Bible.  The servant essentially prayed, “Give me qarah this day.”  It goes without saying that with the Lord’s qarah or positioning for right happenings, the servant found a beautiful virtuous woman named Rebekah, who became Isaac’s bride.

We need the Lord to give us qarah every day.  We need to pray the prayer of the unnamed servant.  Tell the Lord, “Give me success — qarah — this day,” and depend on His unmerited favor to cause you to be at the right place at the right time.

Then he said, “O Lord God of my master Abraham, please give me success this day, and show kindness to my master Abraham.   —   Genesis 24:12

We need the Lord to give us qarah every day.
