kjv@Genesis:24:7@ The [Lord][God] of [Heaven], which took me from my father's [House], and from the land of my kindred, and which spake unto me, and that sware unto me, saying, Unto thy seed will I give this land; he shall send his [Angel] before thee, and thou shalt take a [Wife] unto my [Son] from thence.

kjv@Genesis:24:14@ 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.
kjv@Genesis:24:30@ And it came to pass, when he saw the earring and bracelets upon his sister's hands, and when he heard the words of [Rebekah] his sister, saying, Thus spake the [Man] unto me; that he came unto the [Man]; and, behold, he stood [By] the camels at the [Well].

The angel had prepared the servants way to prosper at this task. The blood line was to remain pure. I take it (way) to mean that he prepared Rebekah and her family's heart. The servant put a test before the angel so that he would know when he found the right woman. I have known people to put other tests out in their own prayers and dealings; I think that we need to be careful. Remember that Isaac was to become the continuation of the covenant with Abraham, this wife was to birth a great many seeds of the covenant. There is a righteousness there that may not be there if we place a similar test on which job shall we take or what city. Often our tests favor preconceived notions of what we would most like the answer to be and the situations leading to them born out of our dissatisfaction or restlessness. I am not saying that tests such as these are not good in certain cases, I am saying one must truly search out their intentions and honesty before making demands upon the righteous will of God.
