-that he not return to Abraham’s native land (God’s promises were tied to the land, Isaac must not leave it)
3. Eliezer (Abraham’s servant) prayed and “put out a fleece” (a concept that comes from Judges 6:36-40).
4. Because we have the Word of God, the Spirit of God within us, the providence of God, and prayer as resources for determining God’s direction we in the church age should not live by the “fleece.”
