Mountains – Day 2

Genesis 19:30

Lot and his two daughters left Zoar and settled in the mountains, for he was afraid to stay in Zoar. He and his two daughters lived in a cave.

The Thought

In Genesis 18, beginning at verse 20 we read the tragic story of Sodom where evil reigned. Abraham had had the angelic visitation that promised him the long awaited son that Sarah and he had given up hoping for, and he was escorting his angelic visitors as they went on their way. The Lord revealed to Abraham that Sodom would be destroyed because of the evil that was happening there. Abraham was shocked and very concerned that the good people would be destroyed too. He then bargained with God and they ended up agreeing that if there were 10 righteous people in the town God would not destroy it. Sadly there were not even ten righteous in that town!

Even more sad is that this was the area where Lot had chosen to live. The result of the plan to destroy the town left Lot and his two daughters running to the mountains. He too tried to bargain with God about where he should settle, but Lot seems to have a problem with wisdom and obedience as well as a severe misunderstanding of the seriousness of the situation. The results were disastrous. Ending with the birth of two nations that were enemies of God’s people through many years to come.

Action

Read the whole chapter and imagine it as an epic film; Ask yourself if society across the world has changed through the centuries.

Just a short time after God began populating the earth again through Noah, incest and homosexuality reigned!

Pray for today’s society, for a great Holy Spirit revival that will bring healing to many.

Ask God if in your circle of contacts there are people who need healing from the effects of these sins. Pray for them.
