1 Kings 20:23 Then the servants of the king of Syria said to him, “Their gods are gods of the hills. Therefore they were stronger than we; but if we fight against them in the plain, surely we will be stronger than they. 24 So do this thing: Dismiss the kings, each from his position, and put captains in their places; 25 and you shall muster an army like the army that you have lost, horse for horse and chariot for chariot. Then we will fight against them in the plain; surely we will be stronger than they.”
And he listened to their voice and did so.
26 So it was, in the spring of the year, that Ben-Hadad mustered the Syrians and went up to Aphek to fight against Israel. 27 And the children of Israel were mustered and given provisions, and they went against them. Now the children of Israel encamped before them like two little flocks of goats, while the Syrians filled the countryside.
28 Then a man of God came and spoke to the king of Israel, and said, “Thus says the Lord: ‘Because the Syrians have said, “The Lord is God of the hills, but He is not God of the valleys,” therefore I will deliver all this great multitude into your hand, and you shall know that I am the Lord.’”
Like Goliath disdained the armies of Israel in 1 Samuel 17, the Syrians, led by Ben-Hadad belittled the strength and awesomeness of the God of Israel. The Syrians limited the Most High God as the god of the hills, they assumed our God to be weak in the plains eh?
Friends, what is that situation, circumstances, and facts of life that has limited you, or better still is trying to limit you to the hills, plains, that thing that want to cage you, that issue that wants to put a cap on your dreams and aspiration? Whatever it is friends, erase it. Every evil report, words we have heard from wherever that wants to limit what God wants to do in our lives has to be erased. May the Holy Spirit sift through all the lies of the enemies and uproot every words of destruction from our memories in Jesus name.
You see friends, the Lord is saying to you today like He said in 1 Kings 20:28, because the enemy of progress in your life, the skeptic have said you are not qualify, you are not worthy to be lifted up, you don’t deserve breakthroughs, you are not qualify to be married, promoted, celebrate, have children, be healed, and so on, I will confound them.
They have looked down on my saving grace upon your life. They have counted my blood shed on Calvary’s tree inferior. They have disdained your youth and my gifting upon your life. I the Most High God, the I Am that I Am, I will do the extraordinary through you.
You will catch fishes from the oceans with bare hands, lots and lots. Shrimps with your fingers that you will not have enough room for.Your voice will be heard in the uttermost part of the earth. As many as gathered together against you, shall fall before thee, like I was with David, I will be with you! You will not fail, nor falter, you will not fall, my light in you will not dim, neither will you waver from the path of righteousness. I the Lord has spoken!
