“Then Abram went up from Egypt, he and his wife and all that he had, and Lot with him, to the South.”
“Abram was very rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold.
“And he went on his journey from the South as far as Bethel, to the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel and Ai, to the place of the altar which he had made there at first.
“And there Abram called on the name of the Lord.”
Abram had left all that was comfortable to him, and journeyed with his family for some time going around Bethel – but things were not going well.
“And there was strife between the herdsmen of Abram’s livestock and the herdsmen of Lot’s livestock.”
Being comfortable and putting up with ‘strife’ or stretching out?
“Then Lot chose for himself all the plain of Jordan, and Lot journeyed east. And they separated from each other.”
“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.”
What do I need to separate from in order to see the extent of God’s intent for me?
