“Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan, and lot dwelt in the cities of the plain and pitched his tent even as far as Sodom.”
We read in previous verses that herdsmen of Abraham and Lot weren’t getting along! The solution was to separate, which at times is a good idea, but it seems here that Lot had his eyes on the area of Sodom, it looked good and exciting! This is a good warning for us too! Things may look good, a shiny object so to speak, we just need to be careful and wait to see what the LORD says!
“Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!”
Sometimes we can and do get impatient, we get ahead of God or we are looking at the shiny object! We can start to look at others and think they are being more blessed or things are better for them and we start to quarrel! Be careful, don’t look at them, but instead look to the LORD!
“Therefore I will look to the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation; My God will hear me.”
Today, don’t get impatient, don’t look to others and don’t feel left out! The LORD really has it all covered. Don’t get ahead of Him. When we do, we start quarrels with people and with the LORD! God has a perfect green pasture for us, so just look to Him. Have a blessed day!
