ON THE WAY TO MY HIGH PLACES – (1)


For the Lord's portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.

10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.

11 As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings:

12 So the Lord alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.

13 He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock;

14 Butter of kine, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with the fat of kidneys of wheat; and thou didst drink the pure blood of the grape.

[Deut. 32:9-14] Emphasis Mine

Introduction:

-  ASCHILDREN OF THE MOST HIGH GOD, WE BELONG TO THE HIGH PLACES OF THE LIFE – [DEUT. 32:13/ ISA. 58:14/ HAB. 3:17-19]. THIS IS BECAUSE;

LIKE BEGETS LIKE – [GEN. 1:21-27]

SOURCE DETERMINES SIZE – [EPH. 3:20]

-- ROOT DETERMINES FRUIT – [MATT. 12:33]

-  HOWEVER, IT IS DIVINE GUIDANCE THAT IS THE HIGHWAY TO OUR HIGH PLACES – [DEUT. 32:12-13]

-  THE DESTINATION OF EVERYONE THAT IS NOT LED BY GOD IS ‘EGYPT’ - [IS. 31:1-2/GEN. 26:1-2]

-  WHILE EVERYONE THAT IS LED BY GOD MOVES FORWARD & ADVANCES – [EXO. 14:15/ 1 SAM 12:6]

-  WE ALSO DISCOVER FROM SCRIPTURES THAT EVERY REVIVAL IS ORDAINED TO MOVE GOD’S PEOPLE FORWARD – [HAB. 3:2, 17-19/1 SAM. 12:6]

THIS MEANS BEING LED IN THE MIDST OF REVIVAL MAKES YOU UNSTOPPABLE, UNMOLESTABLE, UN-WITCHABLE, UN-SANGOMABLE, AND FINALLY LANDS YOU AT THE TOP MOST TOP IN YOUR FIELD.

EVERY TRUE DISCIPLE ALWAYS ENDS UP AS AN ‘APOSTLE.’ NOT AN APOSTLE ON THE STAGE PREACHING ALONE BUT AN APOSTLE IN THEIR VARIOUS FIELDS – [MATT. 4:19]

--  The truth is this: EVERY MOVE OF GOD PROVIDES A PLATFORM FOR THE RISE OF GIANTS THROUGH VISIONS AND REVELATIONS – [JOEL 2:1-11/ JER. 30:19-21]

-  THROUGH DIVINE DIRECTION, GOD LED MEN LIKE ABRAHAM [GEN. 12:1-3], MOSES [EXO. 3:1-10], GIDEON [JUDGES 6:11-16] AND MANY OTHERS TO THE HIGH PLACES OF LIFE.

-  WHEN WE FOLLOW THE LEADING OF THE SPIRIT, OUR ENEMIES ARE RENDERED HELPLESS – [PS. 23:1-6]

-  WHEN YOU ARE IN THE CENTRE OF THE CENTRE, OF THE CENTRE, OF GOD’S PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE, YOU WILL BE LEAVING LIKE SATAN, DEMONS, AND DEMONIACS DON’T EXSIST. YOU WILL JUST BE FEEDING FAT IN THE MIDST OF OPPOSITION.

-  YOU KNOW OPPOSITION IS SIMPLY THERE TO TEST YOUR POSITION IN GOD.

 

HOW GOD LEADS:

1.  THROUGH A DESIRE TO BE LED – GOD DOES NOT AND WILL NOT LEAD EVERYONE! - [PRO. 14:12/ PRO. 16:25/ ISA. 48:17/ PS. 32:8/ IS. 48:21]. GOD WILL NEVER LEAD GOATS BUT ONLY SHEEP - [JOHN 10:14/27]

2.THROUGH PRAYER AND FASTING – [2SAM. 5:18-22/ EZRA 8:21-23/ JER. 33:3/ IS. 58:6/11]. FASTING SANITISES YOUR SPIRIT TO BE ABLE TO HEAR FROM GOD. GOD WILL NOT SPEAK BECAUSE YOU ARE FASTING. HE IS ALWAYS SPEAKING, BUT YOU WILL HEAR BECAUSE YOUR SPIRIT MAN IS TUNNED UP IN FASTING.

¨   SUPERNATURAL BREAKTHROUGH – JONAH 3:1-10/ IS. 45:1-3/ DEUT. 32:11-13/ GAL. 2:8

  

ENCOUNTER WITH DESTINY:

EVERY ENCOUNTER WITH GOD IS AN ENCOUNTER WITH DESTINY – [GEN 12:1-3/ EXO. 3:7-10]

AND SINCE GOD IS HIS WORD AND HIS WORD IS HIM, EVERY ENCOUNTER WITH THE WORD IS AN ENCOUNTER WITH DESTINY – [JOHN 1:1-5/ IS. 9:6]

DESTINY IS A PRODUCT OF DIVERSE ENCOUNTERS WITH GOD - PRO 29:18/ JER. 29:11-13
