TOPIC: TAKING YOUR PLACE AT THE TOP
SCRIPTURE: Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Matthew 5:14.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: If you are destined for the top, you must make up your mind to take your place at the top by force.
Our anchor Scripture makes it clear that as children of God, we are created for the top. Our destiny is existence in the high places of the Earth. We are not designed for the ground level.
Therefore, if you are destined for the top, you must make up your mind to take your place at the top by force.
Matthew 11:12 says,
And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.
Please understand this: If the high place of the earth is your destiny, you must violently react against existence in mediocrity.
For example, if a grown-up man is addressed as a woman, he would get angry and react violently because he is not a woman. The man would be furious at the person who called him woman and would ask, “Why are you calling me a woman? Do you see feminine characteristics or features in me?” If the man is hot tempered, he may slap the person who called him woman. This is because it is an abuse of masculinity to address a man like that. Please note that being a woman is not a lower level of existence, just a different aspect of our common humanity.
In the same manner, if you are meant to be flying at the top and anyone tries to give a wrong identity, you must react. Determine to refuse and reject low-level existence and take your place at the top by all godly means. That is who you are and where you belong.
Remember this: If you are destined for the top, you must make up your mind to take your place at the top by force.
- Reject low level existence.
- Take your place at the top by all godly means.
PRAYER: Lord, I reject the ground level existence. I receive the grace to take my place at the top, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

AMAZING FACT: Some land snails can sleep for up to three years in hibernation or aestivation. Snails need moisture to survive, so when the weather isn’t cooperating, they can hibernate for three years until the temperature is more suitable.
PROPHETIC WORD/DECLARATION: Every force that has kept you at the ground level in life is broken off your life now in Jesus’ Name.
