Many Possessions


Genesis 13:5-7 says, Now Lot, who was moving about with Abram, also had flocks and herds and tents. But the lands coud not support them while they stayed together, for their possessions were so great that they were not able to stay together.

Can you imagine having more then enough possession that the town you lived in could not support both you and your family?

And yet here we have two men who obviously was blessed beyond what their minds could of imagine.

This is the type of blessings that God is wanting to give us. These blessings came with obedience. God took an ordinary man name Abram and called him to a task that he was not qualified to do.

Maybe your wondering when will God bless you abundantly with possession? Don’t lose heart, for God is no respector of person. What He did then He is still doing, He does require obedience from us.

Have a blessed day.

  1. A side story that I heard in a sermon is how Abraham and Lot made their choice of where to go.
    Abraham having the right heart gave Lot first choice. Lot picked the area that looked most promising. Unfortunately his (Lot) choice although it “looked well watered and fertile, like the garden of the Lord” placed Lot and his family “near the people of the city of Sodom who were wicked and utterly defiant toward God”. As you know this later proved to be not a good decision for Lot.
    The point of this is what is good for the cattle, may not be good for the family.

  2. Thank you guys for reading the devotion. My prayer is that whatever you received from it that you will allow God to speak to your heart concerning possessions.
