Do you ever read in the Bible about all the kings from the Old Testament and view them in a certain way, because of what they either did or did not do for The Lord?
Today, we focus on Asa, because he was one of the top kings in a long line of despicable kings… who were all meant to rule over God’s people in a godly way. While Asa reigned fairly well, and loved God with all his heart, he still missed some things, which would eventually cost him his life.
I want better for you, so today I serve you a message that will help you tear down any high place in your life that has been allowed to eclipse God’s supremacy.
We read about how Asa was inclined toward God, loved The Lord, and has a reputation as a good king, who was honorable to God. What we also have is someone with more good plans from God than he actually did. Maybe he didn’t get around to it and may have done it had he lived longer. We’ll never know. How would it be if we just made an agreement to simply obey God immediately? I think that is a good plan.
The high places were not removed. The Holy Spirit chose to ensure that was in the Bible whenever it was true, because there is a strong message there… THE HIGH PLACES ARE TO BE REMOVED! These idolatrous sites for demonic worship should have never existed in the first place, but ungodly people do ungodly things and the rest of us earnest, godly people have a responsibility to fix it… especially those given leadership and authority. So, like Asa, we find ourselves “back in the high life again,” with idolatry in our land. Regardless of how these high places got established, they do not deserve and must not be allowed to remain. God has given each of us His Word and will along with the authority to align our lives and culture with His will. Frankly, He expects us to do it. He’s empowered us to do it. You can do it…. So DO IT!
Stop allowing any “high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God.”Tweet this!
Pull down every demonic stronghold, cast down every demonic argument as well as every high thing erected against God, and bring every thought of yours into captivity to the obedience of Christ. Be very afraid if you’ve found yourself back in the high life again… and then dig yourself out of it by living out 2 Corinthians 10:4-5.
Following the video, you may want to ask yourself a couple questions:
- What is still left that God has given you to do that you haven’t yet done?
- What have you put in that place that keeps you from accomplishing God’s plan for you?
- Who is going to take the high places down in your city, or your neighborhood, or your home, or your heart?
