“Removing the High Places”

II Kings 15:32-35

 

Make sure that you do not have things in your life that shouldn’t be there.

 

In II Kings 15:32-35, you find the story of a King who began to reign, but had not removed the high places.

 

Now to better understand this, you must get a clear picture of what a high place was.

 

The high places represented idolatrous worship or idol worship. It represented false worship. Simply meaning that something else or somebody else was the object of their worship before God.

 

God still was not first in their hearts. Other things meant more to them than God. We have people doing the same today. They are trying to serve the Lord or do what is right in His sight without removing the high places out of their lives.

 

Question: Is there anything in your life right now that means more to you than God? Or, is there anything that you are putting before God? If so, then this is a high place in your life.

 

Matthew 10:37 says, “He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: And he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.” Notice what He says, “You love them more than me.” He expects you to love them, but not more than Him because He should be first in our lives.

 

Sometimes it may not be a person. Sometimes there are other things that we are putting before God.

 

It is time for you to remove it so you can set yourself up for a fruitful and productive season.

 

Matthew 6:33 says, “But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” This is the key to your fruitful and productive season.
