Genesis 13:14-18
Introduction
This incident in Abram’s life parallels Luke 18:18-30.
Abram had seemly lost everything
His land
His family
But God said it would all be his (13:14-17)
But he would have to do two things:
Lift up his eyes
Walk in obedience
\\ 1A.
Lift Up Your Eyes (13:14)
Unlike covetous Lot, Abram lifted up his eyes in obedience to God’s command.
We too need to lift up our eyes…
1B.
To the heavens (Isaiah 40:26-30)
When you feel discouraged, feel like God does not care about you… Look to the heavens!
When you fear the future… Look to the heavens!
When you feel all alone… Look to the heavens!
Look to the heavens and remember that the Lord is everlasting, He is the creator, He never grows tired or weary!
2B.
To the Father
Jesus models it (John 11:41-42)
God’s Word commands it
*Matthew 7:7-8 *Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
8For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
*James 4:2* You lust and do not have.
You murder and covet and cannot obtain.
You fight and war.
Yet you do not have because you do not ask.
*John 14:13-14* And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14If you ask anything in My name, I will do /it./
\\ 3B.
To Jesus (Hebrews 12:1-3)
He is the founder of our faith!
*Ephesians 2:8-9* For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; /it is /the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.
He is the finisher of our faith!
*Philippians 1:6* being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete /it /until the day of Jesus Christ;
We must focus on Jesus!
Ø      We are so easily distracted!
(Matthew 17:4-8)
4B.
To the harvest (John 4:34-38)
The harvest is ripe it was then and is now!
*Amos 9:13 *"Behold, the days are coming," says the LORD, "When the plowman shall overtake the reaper, And the treader of grapes him who sows seed; The mountains shall drip with sweet wine, And all the hills shall flow /with it./
Are you looking to the harvest?
Are you participating in the harvest?
*Matthew 9:37-38* Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest truly /is /plentiful, but the laborers /are /few.
38Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest."
\\ 2A.
Walk in Obedience (13:17-18)
1B.
Walking means following!
*Luke 9:23* Then He said to /them /all, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.
