When Abraham and his family reentered Canaan after making a choice to briefly enter Egypt, they returned with great wealth—livestock, silver and gold. They came to the region around Bethel and there a bit of a conflict broke out between the herders of Abraham and those of his nephew Lot. Abraham was faced with a choice regarding the limitations of the land. God tells Abram to look North, South, East and West, and everything he sees will be his.
While Lot chose the city—he was also choosing boundaries. He was bound in physically by the gates of the city and also spiritually by the sinful restrictions of that city. Sin always looks like freedom at first—but if you know the story of Lot and Sodom and Gomorrah, it’s anything but.
Abraham let God choose for him and there were no bounds on His provision—it was wherever his feet could take him. This week my pastor taught on the phrase “much more” and how that’s what God wants to give us. This is clearly evident that this is the nature of God. He wants to give us much more than our eye can see.
