Then Abram moved his tent and came and dwelt among the oaks or terebinths of Mamre, which are at Hebron, and built there an altar to the Lord.” Genesis 13:18 AMPC
If you read the whole of chapter 13 of the book of Genesis, you will notice that whenever God gives an instruction to Abraham, the next thing Abraham does is to build an altar where he calls the name of God Almighty. Abraham never substituted his relationship with God Almighty for nothing else. The victory that he obtained over his adversaries was because he magnified his relationship with God. And whenever we magnify our relationship with God Almighty the promises of God will be made manifested in our lives and we will see that, victory will always follow us . For example ;
And I will bless those who bless you [who confer prosperity or happiness upon you] and curse him who curses or uses insolent language toward you; in you will all the families and kindred of the earth be blessed [and by you they will bless themselves]. [Gal. 3:8.] Genesis 12:3 AMPC
And in Genesis 14v13-16 we saw how God Almighty gave Abraham the victory over his enemies because Abraham magnified the relationship God has with him. Also when the servant brought the news to Abraham about Lot being taken captive, Abraham was in the place where he built and altar of worship to God Almighty.
Then one who had escaped came and told Abram the Hebrew [one from the other side], who was living by the oaks or terebinths of Mamre the Amorite, a brother of Eshcol and of Aner–these were allies of Abram.” Genesis 14:13 AMPC
One of the reasons why many believers are living a defeated Christian life is because they are not magnifying their relationship with God just like Abraham. God gave Abraham the victory, because he was always in the secret place of worship to God Almighty.
It is time for us to return back to the heart of worship to God Almighty if we want to start experiencing victories over our circumstances in Jesus Christ mighty name.
Let’s pray together:
Heavenly Father I thank You for Your word. Help me and draw me back to the heart of worship in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen
