Blessings Faith Walkers,
It’s been a while! I’ve been podcasting and have been slacking off on my first baby. I always make it back, to God be the glory. We are still in the book of Genesis and still building an illuminating light if I may add. If you are trying to connect with the Let’s Feast Podcast Click Here
Let’s not wait any further let’s get into Abram and Lot. Abram left Egypt with his wife, servants and belongings traveling back to the place where he first pitched a tent, between Bethel and Ali. This is where he first built an Alter. There Abram called on the name of the Lord. The word also tells us that lot was rich as well.
The land was not able to support the bountiful blessing that God gave to Abram and lot the resources like food and water were a minimum. The word says their possessions were to great between the too. This means everything attached to you will win.
Because the land couldn’t hold both the possession. Servants began to disagree and fight. Abram said to Lot, let’s not fight we are relatives. Separate from me. If you go left, I will go right. If you choose the right then I will go left.
Lot looked and saw the Valley of the Jordan had plenty water and so lot chose for himself all of the Valley of Jordan.
The word says that Abram settled in the land of Canaan. Lot settled in the cities in the Valley and camped as far as Sodom.
It goes on to say the Lord told Abram to look from the place he is standing northward, southward, eastward and westward. The land that he sees will belong to him and his descendants.
Can I say that the first thing that jumped in my separate was God didn’t tell Abram about this blessing until he fully separate from that thing that God wants us to separate from. Abram had to leave his family, but his still brought along his nephew.
Here’s Gods promise to Abram 13:16 God tells Abram I will make your descendants as many as the dust. And if any man wants to count dust, then your descendants can be counted.
The Lord tells Abram to get up and look at what he has given to him. Abram built camp moved his tent and settled by the Terebinths ( Oak Tree) and there he built a Alter.
