God shows up, Do we wow up?


Genesis 12:7 reads “And the Lord appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the Lord, who appeared unto him.” 

God shows up to Abram and promises his seed an inheritance of the land. Note, Abram at this time is childless (no seed) but we see that Abram builded an altar unto the Lord, implying that Abram trusted God fully at his word and wow’ed up.

Points to ponder:
When the Lord appears to us through his word, do we end up worshiping him by building his altar and presenting our lives as a living sacrifice (Romans 12:1-2) unto him. When God promises us what may seem impossible, do we fully trust him at his word as Abram did and wow up. When God shows up, do we wow up?

Genesis 12:7 (KJV)
And the Lord appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the Lord, who appeared unto him.
