The Lord had said to Abram, “Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you. I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others." (Genesis 12:1‭-‬2 NLT)

Note: God told Abraham to leave his country and his relatives. There is a reason for this. Yet Abraham disobeyed by bringing Lot.

Thinking about Abraham and Lot. Abraham didn't walk in the promises of God until he disconnected from Lot. Sometimes we are our own stumbling block as a result of disobedience.

We think God hasn't delivered on His promises when the issue is we haven't gotten into position to receive those promises. The cause can be traced back to some form of disobedience, pride, or a lack of humility.

"After Lot had gone, the Lord said to Abram, “Look as far as you can see in every direction—north and south, east and west. And I will give you so many descendants that, like the dust of the earth, they cannot be counted! Go and walk through the land in every direction, for I am giving it to you.” (Genesis 13:14‭, ‬16‭-‬17 NLT)

What is your "Lot" God has told you to let go of, disconnect from, or leave alone that you're still holding on to? "Lot" can be a person, group, place, or thing. And yes, this may be hard to hear but it is nevertheless true, it could be ministry, church, and family.

God may want to move you in a different direction. He may have even given you the signals and positioned you but you have to walk with Him.

Cling to verse 8 here and don't be the person in verse 9:

I hear the Lord saying, “I will stay close to you, instructing and guiding you along the pathway for your life. I will advise you along the way and lead you forth with my eyes as your guide. So don’t make it difficult; don’t be stubborn when I take you where you’ve not been before. Don’t make me tug you and pull you along. Just come with me!” (Psalms 32:8‭-‬9 TPT)

Let's be obedient to what God is telling us to do even if we don't understand it fully. God sees what we can't and He knows what we don't. Obedience opens us to the blessings of God. Disobedience delays the blessings and causes unnecessary obstacles. Keep in mind, obedience doesn't mean smooth sailing, it means God is with us and directing us.

"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path." (Psalm 119:105 AMPC)
