When God called Abram to Canaan, praise waited for God in Zion. The first thing Abram did when he got to Canaan was set up an altar to worship and praise God. This is extremely important. Our response to God’s sovereign choosing to bless and commission us, is faith and worship. Abram puts a stake in the ground, an Ebenezer, between Bethel and Ai. Thus far God has helped us. When we come to worship God, we come prepared to confess our sins, to hear God speak, to take vows and profess our faith once again. We are children of Abram, following his faith in God, claiming God’s blessing by worshiping Him.
