Air. We breathe it in. We are surrounded by it. We can’t see it.
Air. We can and do travel through it. We can’t get around it. It is simply and astonishingly everywhere.
It is one thing we cannot live without. Air is life. Being able to breathe it in is life. We live by it and travel through it.
One day, I realized that PRAISE travels through the air via sound waves. It also came to mind that I had read Satan is the prince of the air. He is the ruler in this place that we live.
Made Alive in Christ
2 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 2 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. 3 All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh[a] and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. 4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. 6 And God raised us up with Christ
and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Ephesians 2:1-10 (bible gateway)It is a bit disconcerting that the very air we breathe has a ruler that HATES US. God knows that of course and He loves us without end. He has given us PRAISE. PRAISE that travels through the air via sound waves. When we praise God, we affect the very atmosphere around us. We declare the true King and ruler over ALL. KING JESUS. We declare the Kingdom of God and renounce the kingdom of darkness.
May my mouth and yours change the air around us. May we speak out words of LIFE, LIFE, LIFE and proclaim how Amazing and how Good God is. May my heart and yours be filled with more and more desire to shout from the rooftops OUR GOD IS AN AWESOME GOD!!!!!!
All in the name of Jesus!
