Day 67: I trust you, Lord. I'm willing to relocate for you. Genesis 12
After a storm has completely devastated your life, don’t sweat it. It’s just temporal things anyway. Things that are not needed or things that you don’t need. It’s just STUFF. Let it go.
Sometimes when the storm has passed, it may be time to move on. You see, after your purging, spiritually or physically, it’s time to move forward. You may be stuck, wallowing in what you have lost, but know that God had something great for you on the other side. If he has to make you relocate to get it then so be it.
Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. So Abram departed, as the Lord had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran. And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came. Genesis 12:1-5 KJV
We all know that Abraham had to leave his home to relocate. What some do not notice is the two people he took with him that were named: his wife Sarai and his nephew Lot. Now there’s a lot people have focused on when it comes to Lot. The most that will be said here is when you relocate, you can’t take everyone with you. Sometimes God will move you to remove some people.
Place your focus on Abraham’s wife. Storms have a way of separating families. This is not of God. Nowhere in the Bible were spouses ever separated. You see, the devil has used the guise of your storm to make you think a temporary move, or separation, from your family unit is what’s best for your family. IT ISN’T. Yes, sometimes God requires us to relocate so that He can place us in our blessings, but at no time does he say spouses and families should leave one another in order to get to these blessings.
You may have been separated from your family because of a lost job. Maybe it was a lost loved one or maybe even a real storm. Just know that while God may have shown you it was going to happen, it should have been rebuked and His word should have replaced that vision. He was showing you so that you could know to speak against it. It’s not to say you weren’t to move. It is to say you weren’t to be separated.
If you’ve had to separate from your family because of a storm, don’t sweat it. Repent for missing the needed rebuke and know that like Joseph, God will prevail in your situation. Start declaring your family united and watch God go to work. He can put families back together again.
Moved but not moved,
