🌤✨GOD’S DAILY TOUCH (GDT)✨🌤(The Man Called Abraham)

Sat. 23rd June, 2018

Genesis 13:14-16

_”After Lot had departed, the LORD said to Abram, “Look from the place where you stand to the north, south, east, and west. I will give all the land that you see to you and your descendants forever. And I will make your descendants like the dust of the earth, so that if anyone is able to count the dust of the earth, then your descendants also can be counted.”_

Have you realized that there comes a time in your life when you have to just bid some people goodbye out of your company so you can move on with your life? Abraham experienced a season of his life where he had to let go of his closest relative, Lot, so he could move on in life.

When Abram left his country, he did so with Lot. With time, Abraham’s servants and livestock increased and so did Lot’s. The servants of Abraham and Lot quarreled often so Abraham proposed that they went their separate ways. Lot was given the privilege of choosing where he wanted to go and he chose the rich vegetations of Jordan region where Sodom was.

Lot had chosen the very best of the land. It is worth noting however that, it was only after Lot had left that God reappeared to Abram to give him the specific details of his blessings. It wasn’t that Lot was a bad relative but then, sometimes in life we need to go apart in order to multiply.

Beloved, there are some people in your life whose presence deny you focus on where God is taking you. Some friends come to help us waste our time, engage in useless quarrels, spend energy and money on useless ventures. The longer you keep such friends closer, the farther you would be from your success. You have to wisely distance yourself from them.

Precious one, God is patiently waiting for some people to move out of your life so He can gain your attention and reveal the next level of blessings to you. Some friends are precious and urge you on; you need to keep them. Some are also full of distractions and negative energy; keep them at a distance. You have to move away from some people in your life. Think about this.

_Prayer_
Heavenly Father, please grant me the wisdom and courage to move away from allies in my life who are distractors. Reveal Your plans to me LORD, in Jesus name, amen.

_Question for Meditation_
What criteria can I use to identify good companions from distractive ones?
