      The servant said to him, ?Perhaps the woman may not be willing to follow me to this land. Must I then take your son back to the land from which you came?? Abraham said to him, ?See to it that you do not take my son back there. The Lord, the God of heaven, who took me from my father?s house and from the land of my kindred, and who spoke to me and swore to me, ?To your offspring I will give this land,? he will send his angel before you, and you shall take a wife for my son from there. But if the woman is not willing to follow you, then you will be free from this oath of mine; only you must not take my son back there.? So the servant put his hand under the thigh of Abraham his master and swore to him concerning this matter.
Genesis 24:5-‬9 ESV

Here we see Abraham making arrangements with his servant to get a wife for Isaac but she had to come from the home land of Abraham this we can see when our Lord came into the world he went to Israel to aquire his bride the church back to the land he came from.
Its interesting that things have a tendency to repeat themselves throughout scripture I think this is what St Paul means when he says.

   For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known. So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:12-‬13 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/1co.13.12-13.ESV               


The mirror is the OT everything that happens in it is a mirror image of things to come.

Love and Peace

    Then the servant took ten of his master?s camels and departed, taking all sorts of choice gifts from his master; and he arose and went to Mesopotamia to the city of Nahor. And he made the camels kneel down outside the city by the well of water at the time of evening, the time when women go out to draw water.
Genesis 24:10-‬11 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/gen.24.10-11.ESV           


This can remind us of the suffering servant that came from the Father with all his wonderful  gifts the greatest of these eternal life.
The well of water can represent the water of the word of God which had been  given to Israel our Lord came to fulfil this word.

Love and Peace

    And he said, ?O Lord, God of my master Abraham, please grant me success today and show steadfast love to my master Abraham. Behold, I am standing by the spring of water, and the daughters of the men of the city are coming out to draw water. Let the young woman to whom I shall say, ?Please let down your jar that I may drink,? and who shall say, ?Drink, and I will water your camels??let her be the one whom you have appointed for your servant Isaac. By this I shall know that you have shown steadfast love to my master.?
Genesis 24:12-‬14 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/gen.24.12-14.ESV     


This can remind us of our Lord coming to Israel to drink of the water of the word of God he prays to the Father for success and to find the right woman for his master could be a reference to the bride of Christ who would come out of Israel.

Love and Peace

Here we see Abrahams servant asking for a sign and he would receive one as we all do through the scriptures God is always telling us what he is going to do and we really need to take notice of what he says.
