The LORD spoke to me regarding Abram and how he had to leave Egypt and go back to the Negev, he and his wife and everything he owned, and Lot still with him.
After some time, the scriptures confirmed that He then moved on from the Negev, camping along the way, to Bethel, the place where he had first set up his tent between Bethel and Ai and built his first altar. Abram had prayed there to GOD.
Many times, God will have those whom He is calling and sending somewhere else, to pull up their roots and go to where He is sending them, from a place that is familiar to them, to somewhere they know nothing about! Just as He did Abraham.
You must remember that Abraham was a man of faith and he had his total trust in God!
When he was called to go out from Egypt to a land he had never heard of, it took him walking by faith and not by sight. And when he left, he not only took his own family, but he took his nephew Lot and his family with him as well!
Now what I found fascinating was the fact that God himself caused a circumstance of events to take place in the lives of both Abraham and his nephew Lot, in order to get them both into His perfect will for both their lives!
In fact, if you will take note, there was not one person on earth in the Bible whom God didn’t predestine and launch them into destiny, when He Himself had a call on their lives!
Even in my own life, before I became a prophet/ apostle/ teacher, I can remember hearing an audible voice calling me from being traditionally religious, into the world of the prophetic and the Apostolic.
This book took me into a realm of evaluation and self healing that caused old wounds to be healed and for God to deliver me from things that had in-fact caused my oil to be tainted.
And as The LORD begin to do a inner healing in my life, He begin to work with me in scribe writing, prophetic dreams, teaching prophesy and much, much more, as He did with Abraham.
Why am I saying all this? To let you know that God has called every one of us for a purpose here on earth and He is the one who has the blue prints that will cause us to walk into our God given destiny, as He did Abraham!
As you can see, like Abraham, I had no idea of where my future was going, but one thing for sure —God did!
And, for those worrying about your future in the midst of this pandemic — you need not! God is The Architect and He has the control of the blue prints — just how He wants the building of His house to be in this season!
Your job is like Abraham and that is to trust and to obey God during the shifting and the moving of building the blue prints!
Abraham was not only faithful but obedient to God in the midst of his troubles with Lot’s herd men and his herd men! Abraham could have gotten puffed up with his nephew, but he did not; instead he maintained his integrity and he allowed his character to stay intact at all times during the trials he faced with Lot!
God, during this time, was revealing to Abraham as he gave Lot first choice in choosing the land, that what He has for you, is for you, and that there will come a time when God will require people who have walked with you for a season, to depart, because they are not built to go where God is taking you in this particular season of your life, and which He is elevating you to!
For, it was not until afterwards that Lot separated from him.
“GOD said to Abram, “Open your eyes, look around. Look north, south, east, and west. Everything you see, the whole land spread out before you, I will give to you and your children forever.
I’ll make your descendants like dust-counting your descendants will be as impossible as counting the dust of the Earth. So-on your feet, get moving! Walk through the country, its length and breadth; I’m giving it all to you.” (Genesis 13:14-17 MSG)
Help us Holy Ghost! My God, some of us are crying over somethings that God is cutting, severing and loosing us from, but what we have failed to understand is that God never subtracts from His people lives unless He wants to add something to it to launch them into His divine destiny!
My God, My Lord, God is in control of not just part of our lives but every part!
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose,” (Romans 8: 28)
My Lord, Lot and his herdsmen were fascinated with what they saw Abraham possessed, which was by sight and not faith, because God had prospered him.
Abraham was rich, loaded with cattle and silver and gold. But what Lot failed to understand was that He was only blessed because of the covenant Abraham had with God (and as long as he remained under Abraham he to would be blessed).
But when God began to prosper Lot’s herdsmen, then they get big-headed and wanted to go out on their own.
Isn’t that like a lot of us who have been called under the covering of others whom God has placed us under? We end up in shipwrecked, because of pride!
The Bible tells us, “Lot looked. (He walked by sight) He saw the whole plain of the Jordan spread out, well watered (this was before GOD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah), like GOD’s garden, like Egypt, and stretching all the way to Zoar. Lot took the whole plain of the Jordan. Lot set out to the east.” (Genesis 13:10 MSG)
That’s how they came to part company, uncle and nephew. Abram settled in Canaan; Lot settled in the cities of the plain and pitched his tent near Sodom. The people of Sodom were evil-flagrant sinners against GOD. Genesis 13:11-13 MSG)
What is God saying?
I believe that God is warning His people not to get caught up in what you see, but like Abraham, we must be the children of faith and of the promise!
Abraham trusted and was obedient to God at all times! He maintained his integrity even when he knew he was being evil spoken of, by Lot’s people!
Abraham proved he loved Lot even after Lot took the wrong land. He humbly went down to Sodom and Gomorrah to rescue Lot and His family and risked his own life, to do it!
God wants His People to not fret ourselves because of the evil doers in this season.
He wants you to know that your future is secure in Him as it was with Abraham and that it is He Who is building the house in this very hour!
He has a plan and you as His People have a place in the building of the temple — but this place is conditional and it will take some faith and some obedience on your part as it did Abraham.
Abram Inherits Canaan
“13 Then Abram went up from Egypt, he and his wife and all that he had, and Lot with him, to the South. 2 Abram was very rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold. 3 And he went on his journey from the South as far as Bethel, to the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel and Ai, 4 to the place of the altar which he had made there at first. And there Abram called on the name of The LORD.
5 Lot also, who went with Abram, had flocks and herds and tents. 6 Now the land was not able to support them, that they might dwell together, for their possessions were so great that they could not dwell together. 7 And there was strife between the herdsmen of Abram’s livestock and the herdsmen of Lot’s livestock. The Canaanites and the Perizzites then dwelt in the land.
8 So Abram said to Lot, “Please let there be no strife between you and me, and between my herdsmen and your herdsmen; for we are brethren. 9 Is not the whole land before you? Please separate from me. If you take the left, then I will go to the right; or, if you go to the right, then I will go to the left.”
10 And Lot lifted his eyes and saw all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered everywhere (before The LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah) like the garden of The LORD, like the land of Egypt as you go toward Zoar. 11 Then Lot chose for himself all the plain of Jordan, and Lot journeyed east. And they separated from each other. 12 Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelt in the cities of the plain and pitched his tent even as far as Sodom. 13 But the men of Sodom were exceedingly wicked and sinful against The LORD.
14 And The LORD said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him: “Lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are — northward, southward, eastward, and westward; 15 for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever. 16 And I will make your descendants as the dust of the earth; so that if a man could number the dust of the earth, then your descendants also could be numbered. 17 Arise, walk in the land through its length and its width, for I give it to you.”
18 Then Abram moved his tent, and went and dwelt by the terebinth trees of Mamre, which are in Hebron, and built an altar there to The LORD,” Genesis 13.
