Abram’s Victory

AFTER Abram passed through Sichem, the place of power, he came to Moreh. “Moreh” means the even place, or the place of instruction. After Abram’s victory at Haran, God leads him on to the plain of instruction. He needs instruction for the tests which still lie ahead, for the journey is only just begun. We read that “the Canaanites were then in the land.” – Genesis 12:6. The Canaanites, who represent the world, were observing Abram’s life and scrutinizing his every move. They knew that he professed faith in Jehovah, and they were watching him to see if they could find a flaw in his profession and faith. How much, therefore, Abram needed instruction! The world today is also watching the believer and eyeing him closely in order to find some fault, and so bring reproach upon the cause of the Lord Jesus Christ. We like Abram should walk carefully, for the Canaanite is still in the land.
