What does Genesis 24:46 mean?

Abraham's servant now reveals the first pivotal moment in his interaction with Rebekah by the spring outside of town earlier that day. He had already set up the fact that he had prayed to Abraham's God, asking that the young woman who offered to water his camels without being asked would be the one appointed by God to be Isaac's wife (Genesis 24:12–15).

Then the servant tells Rebekah's father Bethuel and brother Laban what she already understood: She offered to do exactly as the servant had prayed. Her response lined up precisely with the servant's prayer (Genesis 24:16–19).

The servant will soon describe the second piece of information that convinced him Rebekah was truly God's woman for Isaac.
