We shared from Genesis 13:14-15 yesterday and I wish to continue from there. The scriptures said “After Lot was separated from Abraham, God said look up and see…”. Just meditating on those words, shows that our association does affect our vision. (Proverbs 13:20)
One of the things that influence what you see is what or whom you associate with. Lot, though a relation to Abraham was not a good association at the time for the next level God wanted him to be. Abraham’s association with Lot influenced what God could make him see.
Lot is a type of things, people, habits or actions in our lives, that may need to go for us to be able to ‘see’ properly. In Isaiah 6:1 a phrase there is “in the year that king Uzzah died, i saw the Lord…”. We did read in the later scripture that Abraham did go to rescue Lot from Sodom and Gomorrah but at this time (Gen 13:14-15) the separation was necessary for the vision.
Paul said in 1st Corinthians 13:11, when I was a child I spoke and thought like a child, but when I grew up I PUT AWAY childish things. The value of a giving is always the sacrifice involved in the giving. This refers to what you let go in order to give. Abraham had to let go a big part of his history and his “comfort zone” to get into this new level.
Release Lot from your life and you will be amazed at what God will show you. We continue to share on this…God Bless.
