Higher Ground

May 15, 2018

Stepping away from the lessons of Joseph's life for a moment, I would like to invite you into a lesson from mine today.  I would like to encourage you to find higher ground.


We sang a song this past Sunday morning that stirred in me to see something a little differently, from a higher viewpoint if you will.  The lyrics mimicked a Scripture in Zechariah:


"Who are you, O great mountain?
Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain!
And he shall bring forth the capstone
With shouts of 'Grace, grace to it!'”


There is a mountain that taunts me from time to time, to the point that I sometimes forget to take a step back and recognize that I am being taunted.  Its familiarity tires me, but I choose once again to look at this mountain and say the words written above.  Here is why...


As I felt reminded Sunday in my spirit, so I remind you today:  we were placed on higher ground.  No matter what mountain the enemy may stand on to try and intimidate us, our God is higher.  He has set me above my enemies!!  During battle, the one who has higher ground has the advantage...that is us!!  


As with anything, it is all about perspective.  So I challenge you today to remind yourself and remind the enemy that he isn't the one looking down on you.  I challenge you to say to your mountain, "Who are you in comparison to my God?"  


Father, You have exalted me above the enemies who surround me.  I choose to change my perspective to see things Your way.  Don't let me become intimidated again by the mountain.  I trust You.  In Jesus' Name.  Amen.



Zechariah 4

Psalm 27:1-6
