Ashes Under Our Feet
I imagine you are probably just as tired of having the devil get in the middle of your affairs as the next guy. But, it doesn’t have to be that way, you know. Read Malachi 4:2-3 again.
Notice that this scripture says “S-U-N of righteousness,” and not the “S-O-N of righteousness.” That’s not a mistake. Malachi was talking about a bright, blazing Glory. The wings he refers to aren’t bird’s wings, they’re flames of fire that are shaped like wings.
But most exciting of all is the fact Malachi didn’t say that “He shall go forth.” He said, “You shall go forth.”
You and I are the ones who will ensure the devil’s defeat in our lives. We have all the power we need to destroy the works of the devil, and to kick him out of our affairs.
Your confession of faith and your expectancy are going to pull the Glory out of you, and you will walk in that Glory right in the face of hell and everything it has to offer.
You are the one who will go forth with this blazing Glory…the same Glory that appeared as a pillar of fire by night and cloud by day…the same Glory that filled the Temple with such power till the priests couldn’t approach the altar without being knocked backward…the same Glory that raised Jesus from the dead (Jesus is the Head of the Body. We are His feet. His Glory is flowing from Him through us)…the same Glory that God said would fill the whole earth…that same Glory is what you’ll use to tread on the devil as ashes under your feet!
Speak the Word
I go forth, and grow up as a calf of the stall. I tread on the wicked one and he is ashes under the soles of my feet. (Malachi 4:2-3)
