Scriptures For Meditation — Judges 6:25-28; Phil 2:9-11; Eph 1:19-22
In yesterday’s blog, we spoke about the“high places” of the powers of darkness and Satan’s inordinate ambition and his abject failure to exalt himself and his throne above God’s dominion and authority.
The bible tells us that our God, Jehovah, is the Most High God. There is no throne or dominion or kingdom that is higher than His Authority. He is the Creator, Controller and Possessor of all things visible and invisible. His Majesty is unparalleled and His Power is without limits.
Concerning His Son Jesus Christ who He has made to be the heir of all things, the Bible also tells us that—
God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Phil 2:9-11)
And again, that He is head over all principalities and powers and thrones and dominions.
So when we prayed yesterday for God to take down all the demonic altars that are operating against us from the high places of the powers of darkness, we are praying from a position of authority and assured victory because we speak and stand in the Name of Jesus.
God told Gideon —
Jdg 6:25 That night the LORD said to Gideon, “Take the second bull from your father’s herd, the one that is seven years old. Pull down your father’s altar to Baal, and cut down the Asherah pole standing beside it.
Jdg 6:26 Then build an altar to the LORD your God here on this hilltop sanctuary, laying the stones carefully. Sacrifice the bull as a burnt offering on the altar, using as fuel the wood of the Asherah pole you cut down.”
Jdg 6:27 So Gideon took ten of his servants and did as the LORD had commanded. But he did it at night because he was afraid of the other members of his father’s household and the people of the town.
Jdg 6:28 Early the next morning, as the people of the town began to stir, someone discovered that the altar of Baal had been broken down and that the Asherah pole beside it had been cut down. In their place a new altar had been built, and on it were the remains of the bull that had been sacrificed.
Friends, it is not enough for us to just take down the Satanic altars; we must also replace them with a new altar to the Most High God —
There cannot, must not be a “power vacuum” in our lives!
Today, we are going to raise an altar to the One and only True and Living God on the high places, give Him the highest praise and worship and bring our sacrifices of thanksgiving to Him.
First, let’s pray for ourselves, what Paul prayed for the Church at Ephesus —
Eph 1:19 I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power
Eph 1:20 that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms.
Eph 1:21 Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come.
Eph 1:22 God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church.
Let’s lift up our voices and declare His majesty over every area of our lives.
Let’s enforce His authority and victory over our lives and every situation that we may be going through.
Let’s pray that every contrary situation in our lives and household will bow before the awesomeness of His power and align with His counsel concerning our destinies in Jesus’s Name.
