of heaven and earth:

King Melchizedek understood that the God Abram worshipped was the possessor of heaven and earth. This truth was affirmed a few verses later by Abram himself.

(Gen 14:22 KJV) And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lift up mine hand unto the LORD, the most high God, the possessor of heaven and earth,

This most high God is also the possessor of heaven and earth. This means that God does not lack the resources to supply or bless you.

(Phil 4:19 NIV) And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.

What are you lacking today? We can ask God to supply that need according to His abundant riches.

Give what is due to God, the possessor of heaven and earth

(Gen 14:19-20 KJV) And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth: {20} And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.

Abram gave a tenth of his war spoils to the King-priest Melchizedek because he understood that God was the original possessor of everything he has.

Many people find it difficult to give to God “what is theirs”. It is easier to give to God if we come to grasp with the fact that what we have belongs to God in the first place. God has entrusted them to me to do good with it. And by giving tithe I am only giving back to God what was His.
