“Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it. ” – Isaiah 58:14
Read: Deuteronomy 32:7-14; Ephesians 1:15-23; Ephesians 2:1-6
Every believer should be riding the high places of the earth. None of us should be stuck like worms to the low places of the earth. We all qualify for a life of distinction. Remember we are in partnership with the Most High God. That means we share every advantage that is available to Him. We should not be bound or limited in our destiny by anything on this earthly plane. God has promised in our scriptural text above, that when we delight ourselves in Him, He will cause us to ride upon the high places of the earth. And we will inherit the blessings of our father Jacob. In Deuteronomy, “riding the high places of the earth” was used to describe how God brought Israel home with triumph, and how they sat at ease upon the fruitful hills of Canaan; in Egypt, their beginning point, they were in poverty and disgrace; but in Canaan, they looked great, were advanced, enriched, kingly and with stately dignity. The Bible says in the epistles that Jesus is seated far above all principalities and powers, above all rule and dominion. And we are seated there with Him. Hallelujah! I don’t see Jesus under any kind of oppression, so you won’t be either, in Jesus’ Name; I don’t see Him tormented by witches or people. So you and I can’t be victims of such evil diabolical forces. Do you believe that? If there is any kind of oppression around you or your loved ones, you ought to revolt and take authority. I can’t imagine Jesus crying or throwing a tantrum because someone walked out of His life! So shake yourself up, and put your war clothes on. Beloved, you have the advantage in every situation in life. You are the victor, not the victim; you are the ruler, not the ruled; you are not the underdog, or the failure, or the conquered, or the addicted, or the terrorized, or the broke, or the broken. No. You are the blessed; the more than conqueror; the winner; the prosperous. Glory to God! I see you in excellence, riding the high places of the earth today, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
