The source of victory


Abram, with 318 trained servants (not necessarily soldiers), pursued four mighty kings that were plundering many lands and comes out victoriously from the battles, slaughtering these mighty earthly kings and recovering all people and possessions that they had captured and taken over. After his victory, he is met by Melchizedek and blessed by him. Melchizedek then blesses the most high God for having delivered Abram’s enemies into his hands (Genesis 14:20). What is important to note here is that Melchizedek states the reason for Abram’s victory (success). The source of victory is the most high God.

Jesus is the victor over all for he destroyed the power of death, that is the devil (Hebrews 2:14) and overcame the world (John 16:33) and anyone who believes that Jesus is the Son of God, is the one who overcomes the world (1 John 5:5).

Points to ponder:
When God is on your side, the outcome is victory. Are you on the side of God who is the source of all victory? Are you on the winning side?

Genesis 14:20 (KJV)
20 And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.
