Abram the Servant Leader

January 4, 2014

Genesis 13:9

“The whole countryside is open to you. Take your choice of any section of the land you want, and we will separate. If you want the land to the left, then I’ll take the land on the right. If you prefer the land on the right, then I’ll go to the left.”

All throughout the Bible, God’s Message is to serve others. The life and ministry of Jesus Christ teaches us to serve others, rather than to be served.

In the above passage Abram is speaking to his nephew Lot. Abram takes the road of a humble servant. Abram had every right to take the fruit of the land, the best that there was, but yet he didn’t.

How do we today attain a heart like this?

I believe it starts with truly trusting and believing in who God says He is, in His Word. When we really believe this, when we really trust Him as Lord of All, and believe Him to be the Sovereign Lord that will protect and provide every need we have, the servants heart and mind becomes easier.

Let’s be honest not only with ourselves but with God. Ask Him to strengthen you in areas of doubt, fear and unbelief, we all have it, we all face it. But what may separate some of us, is what we do with it.

Are we truly able to say, Lord, your will be done, not mine.

    Amen. Decisions we have to make in life become a lot easier when we trust in the LORD and believe in our whole heart that He will protect and provide for us.
