For those who have the call of God Ham (Genesis 9:21 – 25) And Noah began to be a farmer, and he planted a vineyard. He drank of the wine and was drunk and became uncovered in his tent. And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside. But Shem and Japheth took a garment, laid it on both their shoulders and went backward and covered the nakedness of their father.
Their faces were turned away and they did not see their father’s nakedness. When Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done to him:
He said: Cursed be Canaan a servant of Servants He shall be to his brethren.
What was Ham’s offence?
He refused to cover his father’s nakedness, instead he noised it abroad.
Be careful how you treat those ahead of you especially the fathers of faith. Do you join the multitude to pull them down? Do you pass on gist that you are not confirmed? Do you defend them when they are not there? In which way are you uncovering your father’s nakedness?2 LOT (Genesis 13:7 – 11)
And there was strife between the herdsmen of Abram’s livestock and the herdsmen of Lot’s livestock …….so Abram said to Lot, Please let there be no strife between you and me and between my herdsmen and your herdsmen; for we are brethren………….
And lot lifted his eyes and saw all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered everywhere……… Then Lot chose for himself all the plain of Jordan and Lot journeyed east. And they separated from each other.
When the Lord increased Lot, his covering (Abraham) became his colleague. He did not know that his separation from Abraham was actually a separation from God.
Don’t uproot yourself from where God planted you and do not uproot your spouse or children from their THERE.
The other tragedy was that Lot chose for himself. To be carnally minded is death. Romans 8:5 Lot was too carnal. He lived his life on what he could see and touch. His eyes of understanding were not enlightened.
A spiritual covering cannot be compared with material enlargement. A big ministry without a spiritual covering or mentor will plateau after a while.
The moment Lot separated from Abraham, his life began to decrease. Be sensitive! Let no friend break you off from your divinely ordained covering. If you do, your life will be vulnerable to spiritual attacks. If you need to humble yourself and go back to your source, please do. A river that forgets it’s source will definitely dry up.
Money is good but it cannot provide a spiritual covering for you. Stay within God’s wireless network and it shall be well with you.
