“And the Lord said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him: Lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are – northward, southward, eastward and westward; for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever.” Genesis 13:14-15.
God further tells Abram in Genesis 13:17, “Arise, walk in the land through its length and its width, for I give it to you.”
Our God is a wonderful comforter. Abram was close to his nephew Lot, so the separation from his brother’s son did hurt him. But God was with Abram. After Lot took the best of the land and left Abram with a wasteland, the Lord comforts Abram and reminds him of His promise to Abram and his descendants.
The same God is with us. Probably you are in similar position as Abraham was, you helped a friend, a relative, a brother, and it left you in pain, in an uncertain situation. But God is with you.
No matter where you are and what situation you are in, our Heavenly Father is telling you today, lift up your eyes and look from where you are – northward, southward, eastward and westward. You are more precious to Him than sparrows, now even more so when you are His child. He is telling you that all the promises in the Bible are yours, you need to walk through it, claim it and believe it, for the Lord, our Father, promises to give it to us.
Dear Father, I thank you for your wonderful promises in the Bible. Today I claim them, and receive them by Faith in your Son Jesus Christ. You O Lord are the same, yesterday, today and forever. In Jesus name. Amen!
