Unexpected Thrones

Break Up Stones

3rd September 2021

Scripture Reading: Psalm 92: 1-12


“The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.” (Psalm 92: 12)

One significant fact about the cedar tree, according to agriculturists, is that although it grows in moist soil, they grow even bigger when the roots break up stones beneath the tree. Ordinarily, it seems counter-productive for a tree to grow on stony ground or on rocky soil, but for the cedar tree, all it needs to do is to break up the stones beneath, and the roots would grow larger. The cedar tree expands by breaking up rocks beneath.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: break up the stones in your soil. Break up the opposition on your pathway. Crush the powers of hell that have been unleashed against you. Dethrone every satanic priest that has been elevated and positioned to make a mess of your destiny. Disrupt the operations of the power of darkness in your environment. Give the enemy no breathing space in your space. Crush the head of serpents against you.

Hear me as I hear the Lord: you will rise higher as you break up every stone against your growth. You will rise higher and higher despite the conspiracies of those that have gathered against you. You will use every stone that men have hurled at you as a stepping stone into your new levels. The more they gather against you for your downfall, the more heaven will use them as messengers of your uplifting and next level.

As you break up the stones the enemy set up against you, also break up the stones you set for yourself. Break up the stones of inconsistency, mediocrity, bitterness, unforgiveness, etc. Break up every negative habit that is fast becoming a stronghold in your life. Do away with the very stones in you that want to hinder your progress and increase. Break up the fallow grounds of your life so that the increase from God can manifest.

If there be any stone that has arisen to stop you, stop it before it stops you. Break up the stones, and you will rise higher and higher.“The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.” (Psalm 92: 12)


I crush every satanic stone that wants to hinder my advancement; I rise above opposition, in Jesus’ name!
