"They also took Lot, Abram's nephew, and his possessions and departed. for he was living in Sodom."
 
We see in this portion of scripture warring kings battling over lands and peoples, for setting free and bringing into submission of those around them. Like many, we believe Abram and Lot only sought only to live a life of peace, unmolested  from outside forces. But then as is today, these kings may have very well represented a spiritual battle ongoing for the souls of men. The likes of fear, doubt, discouragement, uncertainty, mistrust, pride, self sufficiency, hardened hearts and unsubmissiveness  wage war against believer and worldling alike. These all seeking to undermine the Lord's work, we recognize the ploys of the enemy, knowing that we have the tools in Christ as we ask Him to do battle in the heavenly places on behalf of His children  and those around us. The Lord would use Abram to rescue Lot, all to His glory.
