Genesis 20:11 NLT
Abraham replied, “I thought, ‘This is a godless place. They will want my wife and will kill me to get her.’
Change Your Mindset
Abraham had a negative mindset. He anticipated evil as soon as he stepped in the land. He forgot that God told him not to be afraid in Genesis 15. He forgot that God was his shield. He was overwhelmed by his immediate environment, panicked and lied in order to “protect” himself.
Aren’t we similar? In a moment of panic we forget every promise God has made and make rash and ungodly decisions to “save” ourselves.
Remember God’s thoughts towards us are of good and not evil.
As God has good thoughts towards us, we must also have good thoughts towards ourselves.
Prayer: Father, you said you will never leave me nor forsake me. I will not forget it. I will not make rash and ungodly decisions in the heat of the moment. Amen.
