I want to share a principle with you that can shift your life. I want to share with you about the"Power of Altars". In scripture Altars were a sign of worship, sacrifice, and change. They were symbols of completing one phase of the journey, and a transition to a new phase of the journey.
Throughout many passages you will find where servants of God built an Altar as a place of transition, reverence, and worship to God.
Whenever an Altar was built a sacrifice was usually made. This sacrifice was a sign of worship and commitment to the change that would take place through that moment on the Altar.
Today we don't build "external" Altars necessarily but we can build "internal" Altars. They are places of "internal" change where our heart sacrifices something so we can transition to our next destination.
Abraham made Altars as a sign of completing one phase and moving to the next phase during his journey.
You will transition from the current place you are in and transition to your next level when you make a sacrifice on the Altar and move anything out of the way that is hindering your next level and your progress.
There is an old hymn "Is Your All On The Altar,
"You have longed for sweet peace,
And for faith to increase, And have earnestly, fervently prayed; But you cannot have rest, Or be perfectly blest, Until all on the altar is laid.
Is your all on the altar of sacrifice laid? Your heart does the Spirit control? You can only be blest, And have peace and sweet rest, As you yield Him your body and soul."
Let's Pray. Lord God, today I build an Altar of sacrifice and change to you. I will move forward with a new dedication and sacrifice to your will and your way. I will see progress, increase, and blessings because of my "Altar-ation". In the Name of The Lord Jesus. Amen.
