When Abraham gave first choice to Lot, and Lot took the best and greenest pastures for himself, Abraham simply let it be so. Then God promised to give him all the land, as far as his eyes could see, to the east, west, north and south. It didn’t matter that Lot had taken the best for himself. Abraham held a relaxed confidence in God and His promises.
My hope for the future, my trust in your precious promises, and everything that concerns me, is secure in You, LORD,
So I choose to relax, and place my confidence in You.
