Day 5

Reading for today 

Old Testament: Genesis 13, 14, 15
New Testament: Matthew 5

Thoughts from today’s reading

Genesis 15:13-18. The promises of God are trans-generational. What Abraham did carried implications of a generation 400 years away from him and even though it would not happen in his lifetime, he was faithful to obey the instructions of God to prepare the way for that time.

Matthew 5:13-15. This whole chapter is full of wonderful truths for the believer to follow. In the highlighted verses 13-15, Christ compares the believer to salt and light. A light does not light itself, nor does it place itself in a productive place to give light to all. Someone lights the light and places it. The book of John tells us that Jesus is the one that give us light.
You have been placed in this time, generation and location by the Lord Himself, and you assignment is to shine and give Him glory. You are significant, and you will be noticed, you will not be hidden, but you will be effective in bringing many to the glory of the Father.

Prayers

  1. Lord help me to be selfless in my service to you knowing that my obeisance and actions may be preparing the way of deliverance for a generation yet unborn.
  2. Thank you Father for placing me as a light in this time, generation and location. My life will be lived with purpose and significance and will bring many souls to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

  1. Genesis 13:10

    Lot made his choice with a selfish motive, looking out for himself and thus relied on his flesh to make the decision of which land to move to and in the process ended up in the most wicked city. Beautiful only on the outside but full of sin on the inside. I pray God gives us the grace to always approach every situation with a godly motive so we can make the right decision that is in the will of God for us

  2. Genesis 14:13-14 I just love this scripture about Abraham. It’s never really noted anywhere that Abraham was a warrior or soldier but somehow he is a fighting man with 318 trained men under him ready to do battle at anytime.

    It reminds me of the scripture be ready to preach the word of God in and out of season. We are all called to be used by God and to do battle for him, not just the pastors or the prophets or members of the 5 fold ministry. We should remember this always and be a place of constant training by God and whoever our spiritual leader is, ready to go forth into battle when called upon

  3. The action of Lot reminds us we to walk by faith and not by sight . Not everything that looks good is indeed good. Also that it may look good for a time but the end may be destruction.
