Bible Text: 1 Kings 3:3 |


The Reason for the high places

High Places:  Compromises made to satisfy others

  • Solomon compromised to satisfied his family 1 Kings 11:5-8
  • They cause us to ride "the fence" 1 Kings 11:6

High Places: Choices where we make the statement "I will worship and serve the Lord on my terms" 1 Kings 12:28-32

"Worship is revealed by whatever touches your life and makes you upset."

  • Entertainment
  • Satisfaction of self

High places: Counterparts of secret sin 2 Kings 17:9

The Retaining of the high places

Someone must take courage to remove the high places.  If not, they will be passed down. 2 Kings 17:41

Just as the kings passed them from king to king, so will yours. 2 Kings 15:35

What do you run to during your free time?  That will help you identify potential high places in your life.

The Removal of the high places

2 Kings 18:1, 3-4

  • Confess sins daily
  • Let God have access to all the details of your life
  • Deal with your high place radically
  • Deal with it thoroughly
  • Deal finally
