    Here in 13 this shows how blessings is ours if we only be obedient and follow GODS direction. Sometime certain situations calls for extreme measures. also lets us know that family will hold you from blessing that are yours if you allow them. It tells us also keep the faith and keep going on knowing that God is on our side.

    Verse 2~ Jehovah God took good care of Abraham because he put faith in him and obeyed him.
  • Andreas
    The secret to Abram success was that he could built an altar wherever he settled and call on the name of the lord as described in verse 4 and18. This made all his to be directed by the lord and this is cordinated with jeremiah 33:3 " call unto me and i will answer you..........."
  • BSP
    Verse 9~Even though Abraham was older than Lot he let him have the first pick. Abraham was truly a humble man.
  • AMB.IFEOMA MARY EJIOGU
    To be effective in serving God,we should discard all forms of self and wholly follow God by constantly seek His will in every thing we do.Abraham has no other person or power other than God.He so much made God his defense city ,strength. We need to be content with God,trust him and accept his plans for us

    V. 4 doesn't mention Lot 'calling on God' at Abrams altar. I think he probably should have.
  • Irene123
    V. 4 - " ..... and there Abraham called on the Name of the Lord." Abraham reiterated his first oath to God and not actually KNOWING his oath, I can well imagine it entailed Micah 6:8. He reaffirmed his standing with God. Everyday we need to do this, as we wake up, before starting in on OUR business.

    I thought it was interesting to read how God told Abraham: "For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever." He told him this AFTER being separated from Lot. It reminds me of things God wants to do in our lives but can only do after being separated from people, places
  • Pastor Akwlou Godwin
    In whatever we doing or seeing we need to Acknowledge God and also Embraze Peace for God is Peace

    I saw a comment on the 2nd page for this ch. about Pharoah giving the land of Goshen to - Sarah. The Bible, nowhere, says that. I guess the Bible is too dull for some people; they have to make up stories to make it more palatable.

    Hi BSP; I found a very interesting scripture touching the people of Sodom; Ezekiel 16:49-50. Now with regard to Lot seeming so naive, and willing rather to overlook the ungodly spirit pervading the place; and because of strifes and difficulties, being willing to leave his father's brother alone with his faith, and the life of a nomad; just as the Lord described the good seed sown among the thorns.
  • BSP
    The men were described as wicked and sinner in the land of Sodom. God viewed their acts and their life as sinful and being wicked.
  • BSP
    Abraham was a man of peace. Although he was older than Lot and that was his nephew, he let Lot have the first pick of the land.
  • Marian
    I am impressed by how Abram never fail to acknowledge God for everything that comes his way. He stops to build an alter there to thank and worship God. Great lesson for us.
  • Felix Ndlovu
    Verse 13 this is after Abraham made covernent with his God
  • Valda broome
    Abram was a humble and God fearing person. His focus was on God who called him. He didn't look at the plain of Jordan, nor did he first choose, he gave Lot the choice to choose. Lot thought he made a good choice, but he ended up being among wicked men. Like Abram, our focus should be on God and not on those things that we see. God should be our only Shepherd.
  • Simon mensah
    We must always allow God to make decisions for us in life.
  • Milton kaluluma
    God leads his people who truly worship Him faithfully.
  • SISTER KATE for verse 18
    GENESIS 13:18 WE SHOULD LEARN TO GIVE GOD THANKS SO THAT GOD CAN DO MORE AND IN ALL WE DO IN LIFE PUT GOD FIRST AND GOD WILL BE HAPPY WITH YOU
  • SISTER KATE for verse 17
    GOD DIRECTED ABRAM TO ARISE AND WALK THROUGH THE LAND.WHEN WE FOLLOW GOD 'S DIRECTION IN TOTAL OBEDIENCE WILL NOT FALL INTO DANGER IN LIFE
  • SISTER KATE
    THERE WAS QUARREL BETWEEN ABRAM AND LOT BUT ABRAM WAS MORE MATURE BY MAKING PEACE WITH LOT AND GOD BLESS ABRAM WE SHOULD LEARN TO IGNORE INSULT AND MAKE PEACE WITH ONE ANOTHER SO THAT GOD CAN BLESS US
  • Joseph
    When God told Abraham in Genesis 12 1 3 to leave for a place an unknown place later identified as Canaan , he was not told to take anybody outside his nuclear family along. No wonder there was strife with Lot 's his nephew herdsmen later. This lesson to me shows we must try our possible best to follow God 's specific instructions and not just rely on our feelings and emotions. Where we are not sure or clear, it is better to take the matter back to God to get the full details. Presumption could lead to undue stress, strife and problems. However, God uses our experiences to teach us deep truths about Himself and all around us. May God help us to follow the specific divine revelations He has given us for our lives in Jesus Name.
  • Joseph
    Walking by faith is the Only gateway to peace, joy, rest and the solid Christian life. Walking by faith means we are working by the revealed word of God and not by just mere feelings. If we walk with God in spirit and in truth, He has the Capacity to make us overtake our peers and even our seniors on scales of greatness. God is looking for ways to showcase His power and Strength in the lives of His Children
  • Jan Sathekge
    I like the fact that if touch things that don 't belong to you God will punish like he did to Pharaoh
  • Max young lynn
    As Abraham travels, still, he obeys, worships and sets a place of praise on his journey. Nothing deters his obedience.

    Some things have been popping out at me, this is my first read through, and I am seeing things that make me do a Keanu, and go WHOA... Parenthesis mine In verse 16 this "And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth As Adam? so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered. " Point being, read those last lines closely. "so that is a man mankind can number the dust of the earth. " What is 'the dust of the earth '? Easy. What is DUST? Answer Particulate matter. PARTICLES OF MATTER. God, was telling man Abraham, who 's seed he shall make 'as Adam ' about the Periodic Table of Elements 4000 years ago! And the last line "then shall thy seed also be numbered. " IMO, this is PROPHECY. God is telling Abraham about the numbering of his descendants during WW2. Don 't see the connection? According to wiki, the periodic table of elements became widely distributed in the 1930 's. What else happened then? The forced numbering of the descendants of Abraham!
  • Ali
    I think it 's very important to understand that their was hardly any communication barriers between the Lord and Abraham. This is the relationship we should all strive for so. "How " is the key. Abraham conformed altars and secret places to recives God 's instructions. Pray that the Lord lift 's up your eyes to see his glory,
  • Daniel
    When we read of the land of Goshen, in future chapters, we should not forget this part of the historical timeline. Pharaoh gave the area to Sarah as an engagement/wedding gift so in actual fact when all the house of Jacob went down to Egypt, during the great drought period, they were relocated in the area that had, in any case, been given to the" Arch Matriarch" of the Israelites….. Sarah !

    WHEN YOU ARE BLESSED OR CHOSEN BY GOD TO PROSPER, IT DOES NOT MATTER WHERE YOU ARE. LOCATION DOES NOT MATTER AT ALL MY BRETHREN.
