“SEPARATION PRECEDES ELEVATION” Genesis 13:14 “And the Lord said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward”
There will always be one habit, character or one person in everyone’s life that might prevent or stand as a stumbling block on one’s way to fulfilling destiny. Until such stone or block is removed, such a one will keep struggling and striving with nothing to show.
The moment you begin to see where you are going in life or what God has promised you, the narrower your circle should get. You must get rid of whatever might likely prolong or disturb your arrival at destiny. The instruction that redefined Abraham’s life did not come to him until he parted ways with Lot.
If he insisted on having Lot with him, we won’t be reading of his many exploits today. Likewise, there are things or people that can never follow you to your Rehoboth, if you do not separate from such on time, you may end up frustrated.
What are the things to separate from?* Sin: Adam and Eve were living in already dressed garden; enjoying stress-free life until they allowed sin in their lives. It was also sin that denied Samson of a glorious destiny. Separate totally from sin.* Wrong association: Your association determines your destination.
A man can never go beyond the association he keeps; your friends determine the direction of your life. Do not company with those who do not believe in your God and in your dreams, those not going your direction and those who always lure you to sin.* Your past: Let yesterday go if you want to enjoy today and make an impact tomorrow. If you do not make a deliberate effort to let go of your past, your past will hold you hostage and stops you from going forward.
So, hold on to God, involve Him in all you do and it shall be well with you. Receive grace to separate from all ungodly acts. You are lifted. Be blessed
