“And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground; And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat. And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.” Genesis 19:1, 3, 15 KJV https://www.bible.com/1/gen.19.1,3,15.kjv
The blanket covering versus personal action plan.... Abraham had negotiated with God for the deliverance of Sodom if a certain criteria was met but unfortunately God did not find 10 faithfuls in Sodom so the land was going to be destroyed. Lot’s sensitivity to the divine visitation was to now save him and his family from the impending doom but then again his wife made a different decision and was still consumed.... Some people have made it in life and escaped certain situations because there was an intercessor on their behalf - mothers, fathers, spiritual leaders, corporate anointing etc. But there are times when you need to take action, you need to step out, you need to play your part, you need to follow instructions, you need to be sensitive in the spirit to catch the divine path for you. If God had found 10 faithfuls in Sodom and it had been spared, Lot may never have known that someone negotiated his freedom and peace. But even where that did not happen, he still could have missed the visitation of the angels and missed his deliverance. The angels were on a mission and were not willing to stay with him but like Abraham, he entreated for them to stay so that he could take care of their needs and that was his ticket to freedom and that of his children. Question: Have you been a recipient of a blanket covering for so long? Are you sensitive to the specific visitations in your life? Are you recognizing the opportunities of service that may be your ticket to breakthrough? Ask God for discernment today.....
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for your mercies that have brought me this far. Thank you for all those that you have placed in my life that have been a covering to me. Please help me to be discerning of my specific visitation, assignment and actions and help me to do that I may enter into your rest 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
