Calling Out the Troops - Devotion on Genesis 14

Scripture: Genesis 14:14
When Abram heard that his relative had been taken captive, he called out the 318 trained men born in his household and went in pursuit…

Abram gets bad news and calls out the 318 trained men born in his household. These are men loyal to Abram and trained to fight. They stand ready to take action.

This is the perfect picture of Christians calling on their prayer warriors. As the Church, we are trained members of God’s household who stand ready to lift each other up in prayer and to take action on each other’s behalf. We’re not going to pursue an enemy army, but we can band together to defeat the devil’s army when he comes against us.

Who do you call on when trouble comes? Are you using all of the resources the Lord has put at your disposal? Are you making yourself available for other Christian brothers and sisters to call on you when they need help?
