What a special moment Abraham had with God. Abraham and Lot had just split ways, with Lot choosing what area he desired to take for himself. Then God tells Abraham (then Abram) to look around. He said, “Open your eyes, look around. Look north, south, east, and west. Everything you see… I will give to you and your children forever.” Wow!
Abram parted ways with Lot but he did not lose out on the promises God had for him. God was going to bless him and bless him abundantly. He had a great plan. Abraham simply had to trust God.
God has a great plan for your life too. Open your eyes. Look around. Pay attention. Listen to what He has to say to you. Don’t focus on what the world says. He has something else to say—and what He says stands.
“After Lot separated from him, God said to Abram, ‘Open your eyes, look around. Look north, south, east, and west. Everything you see, the whole land spread out before you, I will give to you and your children forever. I’ll make your descendants like dust—counting your descendants will be as impossible as counting the dust of the Earth. So—on your feet, get moving! Walk through the country, its length and breadth; I’m giving it all to you.’”
