Backup Strategy

“Are you trusting God and at the same time worried?”

Are you trusting God and at the same time worried?

God had said to Abraham, “Leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you.” Although Abraham heeded God’s call, He didn’t do exactly what God asked him to do because Lot, his nephew went with him (Genesis 13:1-18; Genesis 15:3).

Recall that when God called Abraham, he didn’t have a child of his own. So, he didn’t have an heir even though he was wealthy. Maybe, Abraham took Lot along because he needed to feel safe that his wealth would at least go to his nephew if he eventually died without a child. 

Obviously, Lot had been Abraham’s back up plan – a strategy intended to make him feel secure. But in the end, it turned out to be pointless.

Are you trusting God and at the same time worried that He might fail you?
