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.
