Games the Devil Plays
And there was a strife between the herdmen of Abram’s cattle and the herdmen of Lot’s cattle: and the Canaanite and the Perizzite dwelled
then in the land. And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I
pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy
herdmen; for we be brethren
Abram’s men were upset with Lot’s men, and Lot’s men were upset with
Abram’s men. Abram’s men began to whisper in Abram’s ear about Lot, and
Lot’s men began to whisper in Lot’s ear about Abram. Most of you have
experienced this nasty old game of the devil in your own lives because
the devil knows that strife will derail God’s plan.
Abram, however, understood the divisiveness of strife. He didn’t say,
“Let there be a little strife.” You might think at times that it’s okay
to be a little upset with some people as long as you’re not burning
upset. No! Abram said, “Let there be no strife. We are brethren.
Believers shouldn’t fight.” Abram was guarding his heart.
May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
