“But there was a famine in the land, so Avram went down into Egypt to stay there, because the famine in the land was severe.”
Genesis 12:10 CJB
Two things here: first God never told Avram (Abraham) to leave the promised land and go down to Egypt (the world)! And second, just because we have conflict or life is uncomfortable doesn’t give us reason to leave! Too often believers look for easy ways out or just follow everyone else. Be careful of worldly thinking! Don’t follow the world, follow the LORD!
“I have said these things to you so that, united with me, you may have shalom. In the world, you have tsuris (tribulation). But be brave! I have conquered the world!”
John 16:33 CJB
Often times we get so caught up in our problem or trials instead of waiting on the LORD. We end up getting in the way trying to help God out! Big mistake, remember Avram ended up saying Sarah was his sister!
“Desist, and learn that I am God, supreme over the nations, supreme over the earth.”
Psalm 46:10 CJB
Today, realize God knows what’s going on around you and what we need to do is desist, drop it and let God take over! He has a plan and a way to deal with everything!
Have a blessed day in Him!
