DIVINE ALLOCATIONS

DEVOTIONAL TYPE : CAC LIVING WATER DAILY DEVOTIONAL.
Date: Saturday, January 13, 2018

Topic: DIVINE ALLOCATION
Read: Genesis 13:1-3

MEMORISE: Then Abram went up from Egypt, he and his wife and all that he had, and Lot with him, to the South. Abram was very rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold._ (Genesis 13:1,2)

*EXPOSITION*
Location is the site or position of something, as well as the positioning or siting of something or somebody in a particular place. Allocation, on its own, is a thing, amount, or share allocated/assigned/earmarked to/for somebody or something.

What are you getting now? What is happening to you? What you are getting is a function of where you are located. That is why it is important to be rightly located. Lot experienced the corruption of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all that followed, because he was located there. Wrong location finished Elimelek and his two sons, right location made Isaac a blessed man *(Ruth 1:1-10; Genesis 26:1,2)*.

Our text is out to make us understand the beauty of right location. Abraham who was adjudged the father of faith, had initially relocated to Egypt, where he could not do much with, and for God, and that journey left him with some scars. Thank God he came back to Canaan that God had promised him initially.

When he took the decision of retracing his steps, see what began to accrue to him: Then Abram went up from Egypt, he and his wife and all that he had, and Lot with him, to the South. Abram was very rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold.

Your allocation is attached to your location. Ensure you are where God wants you to be. Ask God to know, if you are rightly located or not. Sorrow multiplies for people who always go on AWOL before God. Wherever God has placed you, come rain, come shine, don't try to leave without specific instruction from Him. He has the choicest plan for you where He has located you.

*PRAYER POINTS*
*1.* Lord, don't allow me to go beyond my boundary.
*2.* Help me, oh Lord, to locate and stay in my land of destiny and fulfilment.
*3.* Like Lot, oh Lord, deliver as many as are facing serious dilemma for their wrong choice of location.

EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: Genesis 28 - 29 & Matthew 13
