Away from Your Comfort Zone

Away from Your Comfort Zone

Scripture: Genesis 13:14-15.

Genesis 13:14 And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward:

 Genesis 13:15 For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.


Abraham felt a great deal of comfort in his nephew, Lot. Although the length of their marriage is not specifically mentioned in the Bible, I imagine it was a very long time. According to the Bible, Abraham and Lot were both so wealthy that their possessions could be combined without restriction. As nice as Abraham was, and having the heart of God, he suggested that they split apart. Additionally, God might have informed Abraham all these years ago, but it’s likely that he disregarded it up until the point where he had to split from his wife.

The story of Abraham and Lot teaches us that as we grow in Christlikeness, we learn to love and serve others better and to include more people in our circles of love. And you could witness firsthand how the prophet Abraham treated the people he cared about. But according to verse 14 of the Bible, God’s plan for Abraham’s life wasn’t established until he chose to split from Lot.


I will leave you with these questions below to reflect as you critically look deep into these verses of scripture for today:

1- What do you think God is saying about those friends of yours you dine with in an ungodly hour?

2- What actions have you taken to separate from those secret habits (see Galatians5:19) of yours that you know cannot lead you to heaven if Christ comes now?

Friends, if you’ll just give up everything and follow Christ, God will still pardon you today. It doesn’t mean that you would have to stop talking to your friends, but it might mean making a small sacrifice to give up most of your friends and routines in order to please God. My friends, God is waiting for you, and if you stay together until you separate, you might stay in the same place for a very long time. 

So, I invite you to make that separation by merely accepting Jesus into your life today as your Lord and Savior. 


Dear Jesus, we ask for your forgiveness over anything that we intentionally or otherwise not separated from both in the past and present. Today, we confess (begin to confess to God) them and separate totally in Jesus’ name, Amen.
