January 15, 2020 Spirit Meat Devotional :- FOUR AREAS DETERMINE THE SPEED AND EASE WITH WHICH GOD OPERATES IN YOUR LIFE (1) – ISAIAH 40:3-5
There are four things you must deal with for your life to be a highway for the Lord as highlighted in Isaiah 40:4-5 we read earlier.
1.THE VALLEYS: The valleys in your life must be filled. Those valleys are the low points in our lives – areas of secret sins, shame, and depression. These are areas in our lives where the enemy has hiding places. A valley is a depression created between two mountains. Some valleys are wide while some are very deep but one thing that is common with valleys is that it is a place of shadow and darkness. So, anything and any area in your life that provides a comfortable zone for the devil to function makes it difficult for the Lord to move and must be filled up. A valley could also connote areas of mistakes in your life.
2.THE MOUNTAINS AND THE HILLS: Mountains represent past achievements that have the tendency to keep us from moving on with God. They represent things that are gain to us. Things that people see in your life and celebrate are mountains you must bring low. It doesn’t mean that you deny them, just make them come low and then hand them over to the Lord and move on. This is what Apostle Paul was addressing in his life in Philippians 3:7. Don’t ever come to a place in your life that you feel, “Yes, I’ve done it all.” Check what you constantly refer to in your speech. Anything that tends to make you proud is a mountain that must be brought low otherwise, it will become a stumbling block to the Lord in your life.
PRAYER: Lord, let every valley in my life be filled up and every mountain and hill be levelled up in my life in Jesus’ name!
