Exodus 17:11 “And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed”
Matthew 5:44 “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;”
That’s a very difficult thing to do in our modern day, as it was back then. How do you love your enemy and do good to them? Well, that’s how to rise above them! You don’t use hate to conquer hate, only love can do that. You don’t use malice against malice. You don’t use anger against anger.
That’s why Paul wrote:
2Corinthians 10:4 “(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)”
2Corinthians 10:5 “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;”
Our weapons are different but superior. We use them to tear down contrary imaginations and thoughts. That’s why I said earlier that we must be strategic and tactical.
We must rise higher than the world. We cannot think at their level and expect to conquer them. If you respond to hatred with hatred, you will lose because it’s a territory the devil knows more than you. A complete overhaul of our mind and attitude is what will keep us ahead of the tide.
Before we came to Christ, we reason and think like them. We wage war at their level but now we must rise above and stay ahead by changing our minds.
Romans 12:2 “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind…”
Rise above the world by doing the following:
Ephesians 4:31 “Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:”
Friend, it’s time to rise and stay above, like Moses, HOLD UP YOUR HAND!
Love you BiG
