1 John 5:4
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
Now the Lord had said to Abram:“Get out of your country, From your family And from your father’s house, To a land that I will show you. 2 I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
Abram left Canaan (the land of promise) because of a great famine, and he headed toward what made all the sense in the world, he headed to Egypt (the world).
Whenever you leave the Word from God, whenever you leave the directive of the King, whenever you leave faith because of circumstances, environments, you will always begin being motivated out of faith, truth in God.
Genesis 12:10, Now there was a famine in the land, and Abram went down to Egypt to dwell there, for the famine was severe in the land.
Whenever you leave the Word, you only have one more source for your answers, the world. The world is governed by the god of this world. You know you have stepped out of faith, the Word, when worry, fear, and compromise start gripping your life.
When you go to the world, you always end up compromising.

This is not my wife, she is my sister (she must have been hot because she was about 67 years old at this point)
Verse 17 – The Lord plagued Pharaoh because of taking Sarai.
Pharaoh responded by sending them home – get out of the world and get back in faith.
STAY IN FAITH – even when the difficult times come, don’t run from the Word, run to the Word and stand on it and don’t be moved. God is trustworthy, and His Word is truth.
