A Panoramic View

And the Lord said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him: “Lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are—northward, southward, eastward, and westward; for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever.” Genesis 13:14-15
I’ve discovered that God’s promises are bigger than us and broader in its coverage than our imagination.
There is a natural tendency for most of us to be myopic in our vision; and we often only focus on those things that attract our “fleshly” attention. The resulting pursuit of these earthbound and material things, distract us enough that we miss out on the bigger picture of God’s greater blessings.
When God called Abraham to leave behind his “riches” and step into God’s promises; he could only see what he was giving up.
There are times in our life when we need to “lift our eyes and look from the place where you are.”
