Let go and Let God
8 Finally Abram said to Lot, “Let’s not allow this conflict to come between us or our herdsmen. After all, we are close relatives! 9 The whole countryside is open to you. Take your choice of any section of the land you want, and we will separate. If you want the land to the left, then I’ll take the land on the right. If you prefer the land on the right, then I’ll go to the left.” 10 Lot took a long look at the fertile plains of the Jordan Valley in the direction of Zoar. The whole area was well watered everywhere, like the garden of the Lord or the beautiful land of Egypt. (This was before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.) 11 Lot chose for himself the whole Jordan Valley to the east of them
Sometimes God may require that you be alone to receive your blessing . Thus leave behind certain friends, because abraham didnt leave lot, something had to happen for lot to go his way. Abraham blessings came into manifestation when lot left him. But Abraham could not leave lot initially because He might have been young and alone since Abraham was his uncle.,But lot had to leave for Abraham to receive the full blessings. Some people will all of a sudden walk away or out of your life before your blessing can be released.Lot picked the good looking piece of land. But what looked good to man’s eyes is not where the treasure is.Its whats good to God’s eyes, thats where the treasure is.
God showed Abraham’s full promise of the land He could posses after Lot had left.some people will have to leave before your blessings or God’s promises can manifest. So God can show you alone. From my point of view lot seemed greedy, because Abraham gave him the choice of land and he chose the best land and even expanded His tent to sodom. Abraham was not greedy and was very obedient to God, because He gave lot the choice of land even though he brought lot there. Some people will try and take what the Lord has blessed you with and think they have it all. But be patient God has even greater blessings for you. You will own double of what they took. Because straight after Lot left, the Lord showed Abraham and gave him double land.
