Scripture: Genesis 12:1-3, Isaiah 14:12-15
The very first of the I wills of Abraham is, “Get out of your country, From your family And from your father’s house, To a land that I will show you.” Now the contrast here between the I wills of the Abrahamic covenant are listed for us in Isaiah 14:12-15. This passage says, “How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations! For you have said in your heart: ‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation On the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.’ Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, To the lowest depths of the Pit.” As Adam’s offspring, being born in the earth subjects us to the 5 I wills of satan. Jesus, however, overcame each one and birthed a new creation who became a glorious Family of overcomers in Him. The originator of that rebellion was conquered. Those five I wills comprise what it means to be born in sin. Everyone who is born in sin nurtures the giants until salvation and filling with the Holy Spirit. Everyone who was born after Adam’s sin was born with the giants. Five major willful areas have to be overcome. These five areas call us to surrender our will to God. This surrender becomes obedience that overcomes the world. Jesus walked this path for us! He demonstrated the path of surrender. Surrender unfolds a Biblical path toward this relationship that produces the works and greater works and all the fireworks that are going to come in the last days. We are not blind. We’re not ignorant about the ways of God. Surrendering our will to pick up God’s will prevent satan from undermining our inheritance. We choose to honor the Holy Spirit and embrace the future by faith!
