“And let it come to pass, that the damsel to whom I shall say, Let down thy pitcher, I pray thee, that I may drink; and she shall say, Drink, and I will give thy camels drink also: let the same be she that thou hast appointed for thy servant Isaac; and thereby shall I know that thou hast shewed kindness unto my master.”
She was appointed by the Lord for a specific purpose.
The servant begged the Lord to show him who the woman was that He had chosen to be Isaac’s wife.
The servant prayed, and the Lord answered.
“And it came to pass, before he had done speaking, that, behold, Rebekah came out, who was born to Bethuel, son of Milcah, the wife of Nahor, Abraham's brother, with her pitcher upon her shoulder.”
She was prepared for what God had planned for her.
“And the damsel was very fair to look upon, a virgin, neither had any man known her: and she went down to the well, and filled her pitcher, and came up. And the servant ran to meet her, and said, Let me, I pray thee, drink a little water of thy pitcher.”
She was of the kindred of Abraham, just as he requested of his servant.
God answered his prayer for direction and provision.
Rebekah serves as an example that the Lord has a purpose appointed just for us. We need only seek to yield to Him to bring us to the people and places He has for us.
