DEVO. 01.20.23

“God had listened to Abraham’s request and kept Lot safe, removing him from the disaster that engulfed the cities on the plain.” ‭‭Genesis‬ ‭19‬:‭29‬ ‭NLT‬‬

- God was about to destroy Sodom & Gomorrah because of their sin.

- God had to deal with the iniquity in the city.

- But because of Abrahams friendship with God, the Lord told Abraham what he was about to do.

- James 2:23 says that “Abraham was called the friend of God”

- But what made him a friend of God?

- The first part of James 2:23 says, “Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith.”

- It says “Because of His Faith!”

- Abraham simply believed God!

- Abraham took God at His Word.

- Abraham believed God, which meant that he trusted God and because Abraham trusted and believed in God, God knew that He could trust Abraham.

- Genesis 19:23 says, “Abraham came near and said, “Would You also destroy the righteous with the wicked?”

- ‭‭Abrahams closeness to God gave him the ability to negotiate with God, all the way from 50 people down to 10.

- The Lord said, “I will not destroy it for the sake of ten.”” (Gen.‬ ‭18‬:‭32‬)

- Abrahams closeness to God is what saved Lot’s life.

- Even though God still destroyed Sodom, He spared Lot.

- “God had listened to Abraham’s request and kept Lot safe.”

- Friendship has its benefits!

- God heard, God listened and God acted.

- How about you?

- Are you a friend of God?

- Do you have faith in Him and can He trust you?

- If so, who are you praying for?

- Who are you interceding for that they would receive the mercy of God instead of judgment.

- As we go through this time of drawing near to God, make it your goal to intercede for those who are spiritually blind.

- Be the reason that God spare them and rescues them from imminent danger.

- Who are you praying for, today?

- Write down their name and bring it before the Lord!

- Have a great weekend!
