In 1 Samuel 10:5 After that thou shalt come to the hill of God. where is the garrison of the Philistines: and it shall come to pass, when thou art come thither to the city that thou shalt meet a company of prophets coming down from the high place a psaltry, and a tabret, and a pipe, and a harp, before them; and they shall prophesy. 6 And the Spirit of the Lord will come upon thee, and thou shalt prophesy with them, and shalt be turned into another man.
Now anytime that we start moving forward toward the things of God there is always some sort of an attack. In fact, anytime we begin going toward anything that God has desired for us we’ll probably experience an onslaught of opposition in the area that we’re trying give to God. It’s been my experience that the enemy desire is to keep us out of high places. It’s in the high places of life that change comes and battles are won.
The scripture lets us know that Saul was commanded to go to a high place. If you read the beginning portion of this particular chapter you’ll find that Saul met some people in a low place and was instructed to salute them and keep traveling. It’s God’s desire to keep us from connecting with people in low places. When I think of low place people, I think of people who are negative and never have anything good to say.
One of the ways to identify high place people is the sound of praise and worship precedes them. It doesn’t take long for us to recognize where people are coming from. You can locate their position, because their speech gives them away. When we’re moving toward the things of God we must be ever mindful of low place people and high place people. People from the high place have seen things from God’s vantage point.
We become what we hang with! Be careful today and identify the relationships that will elevate you! 🙂
