Scripture: Genesis 14:19-20
“Blessed be Abram by God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth. And praise be to God Most High, who delivered your enemies into your hand.”
Melchizedek, this mysterious man of God, knows the score. When everyone else would have seen Abram’s prowess in battle, Melchizedek saw the truth. God had blessed Abram and given him the victory. Yes, Abram acted bravely and did his part, but without the Lord helping him, he surely would have failed. After all, he only had 318 men against an alliance of multiple armies.
God can give you the victory over overwhelming circumstances, just as He did for Abram. When He does, don’t let it go to your head. Give Him the glory and thank Him for blessing you again. He’s a good God, and He deserves your praise.
