As God’s call came to Abram with its soothing promises attached, he left in obedience taking along with him, his nephew Lot as well as his wife. Although God did not state emphatically that he should go with his nephew, Abraham as a channel of blessing saw the need to go with Lot. God’s blessing to Abram had become a great opportunity for the family to receive God’s grace.

From our reading it says in verse 4, “So Abram went, as the Lord had told him, and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran. And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother’s son, and all their possessions…….”

We should seek God’s voice on how he expects us to carry out His assignment. Is He requesting us to invite other people into the vision or the time is not ripe for an outdooring of the vision? Whatever the case may be, we need to hear God clearly. Abraham knew what the Lord has endowed him with and hence didn’t hesitate to help Lot. The man of God appropriated the word of God in Proverbs 3:27 “Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act”.

God has made you good for you to be good to others. Your good is only beneficial when it’s extending to others. If your good deeds do not extend to others, then it’s not good. Forget about the uncomfortable experiences you have had with some family members and begin to identify some “Lots” in the family and as a channel of blessing open your arms to them It is for this purpose that God calls us, that when we are blessed, others also should be blessed through us.
