Lot took a long look at the fertile plains of the Jordan Valley in the direction of Zoar. The whole area was well watered everywhere, like the garden of the Lord or the beautiful land of Egypt. (This was before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.) Lot chose for himself the whole Jordan Valley to the east of them. He went there with his flocks and servants and parted company with his uncle Abram. Genesis 13:10‭-‬11 NLT

How do you look at the world and everything in it? With which lens do you look at the world and the glory therein? It’s not everywhere that looks very fertile you can decide to pitch your tent and settle down to live. It’s not everything that appears like the garden of the Lord is really from the Lord. Not everything that you see looks beautiful from the outside is beautiful on the inside.

It takes divine revelation to see the internal decay and corruption in what looks beautiful and are active from the outside. It takes vision from God to determine your divine location and the things which God has allocated to you to have and possess during your fleeting days in this world.

Be careful how you look at the world and the things in it. Don’t allow your inordinate desires for position and possessions to be your driving force. Let the Lord by His Holy Spirit guide and lead you to the place He has prepared ahead for you.

True and lasting wealth is from the Lord. God will surely bless you and make you great if you continue to seek Him diligently, follow Him wholeheartedly and serve Him faithfully. May the Lord help you to look up to Him as He guides and leads you daily to your rich, glorious and lasting inheritance in Christ Jesus. Have a blessed day.
