Topic: How Far Can You See [TREM 19 August 2018 Daily Devotional]
“For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.” Genesis 13:15
God called Abraham out of darkness and decided to bless him. But Lot went with him. Lot was not called. Lot was like an attachment. Lot went with him and suddenly they started having problem and they decided to separate. Then Abraham said to Lot, look we don’t need to quarrel, we are family. The land is before you, choose anywhere you want and I will choose whichever one you leave. That should not be the right thing to do because it was Abraham that God called. But when you know who you are, you don’t struggle. When you know what you carry, then you know it’s not about location. It’s about whose you are.
God is eternally committed to your success and wellbeing. So as far as being successful is concerned, it’s a done deal. Lot looked at the place and got greedy. He took the good part and Abraham was left in a dry land.
Then God said unto Abraham after Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thy eyes and look from the place where thou art”. Look from where you are northward, southward, eastward and westward for all the land which thou seest to thee will I give it and to thy seed forever and I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth so that if a man can number the dust of the earth then shall thy seed also be numbered, arise walk through the land and the length and breadth of it, for I will give it unto thee (Genesis 13:14-17).
Look from where you are. What are you seeing? It is what you can see you will have. Abraham eventually possessed the land including where Lot was. Beloved, this is your season of new and glorious things. Speak out your expectations and order what you want. It is what you order that will be delivered to you.
