Topic: YOUR LOST BREAD IS COMING BACK
📖1….”Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.”
📖9….”Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left.”
🔥To the carnal man, the fulfilment of God’s word is often considered as coincidental. But to the spiritual man, the fulfilment is God in action. Before the preacher in Ecclesiastes 11:1 admonished God’s children to cast their bread into the waters, and find it after many days, Papa Abram had already done it. As a matter of fact, Abram gave the entire Land of Canaan to Lot to choose from without God’s instruction. It never bothered Abram that Lot could choose the entire land, or choose the choicest part. Since he was a man of faith, he knew that his faith could turn whatever part left by Lot for him into a fruitful field.
🔥🔥To be qualified as a candidate to vie for salvation in the New Testament, you must be ready to give away your belongings. Even John the Baptist made it as a prerequisite for baptism in Luke 3:7-14. This attitude of Abram was a demonstration of the work of the Cross in advance. At the Cross, Jesus as a perfect man, died and left the outcome of his death to God’s decision. That is why he said in Gethsemane that not his will, but God’s will be done…Luke 22:41-43. At his submission to God’s will, an angel was sent to strengthen him.
🔥🔥🔥The great lesson from this liberal attitude of Abram to Lot is that, although he perfected his obedience to God by sending Lot away, but he didn’t use a selfish method to grasp God’s gift for himself. We must also trust God to keep for us what He gives us, and must not seek to possess it by worldly means. Even Jesus was said to have emptied himself of his essences, before God lifted him up with a higher name in Philippians 2:5-11. What Abram demonstrated was that, at the Cross, even though the Land was Abram’s, he let it go and left the outcome for God. Beloveth, those who know God, have no need to protect their rights. Because He that they have believed, knows how to secure their rights through the Cross.
🙏O Lord, deliver me from the spirit of selfishness that makes me to be too possessive of your gifts for me, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Heavenly father, whatever I have lost as a result of my liberality, may I find them again in Christ, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Precious Redeemer, as I face the Cross in my walk with you, send an angel to strengthen me, in Jesus’ name.
