Abraham when he was called brought a Lot with him; today most of us when we are called bring a lot of Lots with us. And that really is not a problem in bringing our Lots with us, after all Jesus wants us just as we are.
However, there comes a point in our lives just as it did with Abram when our old self and our new self begins to come into conflict with each other, a time when we are unable to receive all that is due to us because we have ran out of space, a time when all around us becomes crowded, a time when we must realise our accommodation is too cramped, when we must realise that our abode has become severely overcrowded.
Abraham got to that point in time, a point when he realise a change must happen, in order to receive more, a point when he realise, hang on, I have gotten some blessings but surely I have not got all that I should receive, a point where he realise something is wrong, he now has more than before but he is not happy, in fact he seem to be having a lot more conflicts instead of enjoyment.
It's at that time he realise what we also should realise that when we are called, we should be in enjoyment, we should be in constant receipt, we should be more bless not less.
The thing is Abram soon realise what the problem was, he knew the solution to the problem. Most of us, however, want the best of both worlds, we know there is a problem but unfortunately we are blinded by our Lots, we are unable to see further than our well watered garden, we fail to discern and abhor the evil surrounding us. Some of us, have become greedy, we have become spoilt, we have become complacent, and we remain in disobedient, all of which prevent us from seeing as Abram did the solution.
And I hear you ask what solution; well here goes, there is a point when we must separate ourselves from our Lots so we can receive our blessings in abundance. A point when we must realise the things we use to do we should do no more, a time when we separate ourselves from the things of the devil, a time when we leave the darkness behind and wander into the light. A time when we say goodbye and let our Lot separate from us and travel on alone.
I pray this will be a great blessing to someone.
