Genesis 19:17 (NLT)
When they were safely out of the city, one of the angels ordered, Run for your lives!...
The safety of Lot and his family, in this case, is credited to the angels. Although he hesitated, they insisted on saving him and his family. It is all about decisions. When a decision is made, many wheels turn, positively or negatively. A decision brought them to a place of safety and decision was required to take them to a place of destiny. The bible says “one of the angels ordered”.
The order should not have mattered if they were not safe at that given time. Amen.
We cannot overemphasize the truth that no decision is insignificant. As previously mentioned, sometimes, the significance of a decision is sometimes only determined by the results it produces. So let’s avoid living casually, or making casual decisions thinking no one else will be affected. Most often, our way forward usually depends on our present state. Whether you are dead or alive determines whether or not the next decision will be made. So let’s live consciously and purposefully for the glory of God. Amen.
We also see that someone needs to set the pace in decision making. The desire of any parent (in this case, Father) is to see that the family and those around them are safe. Yet, the question remains, are you willing to be pace-setter? Are you willing to make destiny defining decisions? Could it be that the reason why you have been stagnant in life is that of your inability to make a decision. I believe your progress in life is dependent on one godly decision away. Purpose in your heart not to abandon the decisions of your life to others. In this case, the angels had to step forward and decide for Lot and his family. We have been given the wisdom of God through which we can learn and make godly decisions. This is not a call for arrogance through which we undermine the influence of others in our lives but rather a call for balance, initiative, and obedience. Amen.
