Our Lot in Life


“God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.

Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth should change
And though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea;

Though its waters roar and foam,
Though the mountains quake at its swelling pride.”
Psalm 46:1-3

                                                                    Genesis 18-19
Where do you go when trouble strikes in many forms? When the Angels pulled Lot from the place of destruction, they told him to flee to the mountain
(Matthew 24: 16-18).

But instead, Lot chose a nearby town. The mountain seemed far away and mounted high, whereby the town was low and he would quickly be there.

But to rise above our fears and see things from the Lord’s perspective we must be willing to meet with Him in higher places than our own.
It’s never a quick fix but with the long journey as we get closer and closer to our Lord we are suddenly transformed (Matthew 17:1-6).   There and only there can we hear His small, still voice of assuredness and peace (Isaiah 30:21).

Running to things familiar is a temporary comfort where we remain the same with our fears.

After Lot stayed in the nearby town he again had second thoughts. Therefore, he recalled the mountain, but the Lord was not there with his fears. Twice, Lot choice the wrong place to abide. Earlier he chose the fertile fields near the towns of Sodom and Gomorrah where wickedness and unrighteousness prevailed
(1 Thessalonians 5:22).
By the time of his deliverance, the influence had done its damage. His wife looked back, destroyed, while his daughters took matters into their own hands.

The Lord is merciful, forgiving, and full of grace. ( Psalm 121:1) But it is our choice to abide in his presence or the world’s. (1 John 2:15-17)
