MONDAY, DECEMBER 13
Scripture: Isaiah 14:14, Genesis 12:3
In number four, satan says, “I will ascend above the heights of the clouds…” Or I am going to choose my doctrine. I will not only choose how I am going to develop but I am going to choose my doctrine and what I want to believe and not believe. With Abraham, God says, Abraham, “I’m going to bless those who bless you. What do you mean….how people treat you is going to be how I’m going to treat them. Well, what kind of doctrine is that? It’s called plumbline doctrine 101. You are going to be My plumbline in the earth. How people treat you is how I am going to treat them.” Abraham could have said, “I do not like that doctrine. That stinks.” But God did not ask him what he thought and rarely seems to be interested in what we think about the different paths He chooses. The battle in area number four is self-righteousness. Either God gets to choose or we choose. When we choose, it often manifests as self-righteousness. When God chooses, we are just a plumbline! Say yes to the plumbline!
