Have you ever been to the top of the mountain? Have you seen the view of the lakes, lush valleys, green forests, and architectural designs of human intelligence?
Being on top of a mountain is synonymous with being "high" as a result of the unmistakable presence of God surrounding you. But imagine what happens when a mountain climber comes back down from the top of the mountain. He would feel devastated because all of his 'highs' would come crashing down as 'lows.' I had this low feeling yesterday. I suddenly felt low all of a sudden after a period of highs. The devil started reminding me of things of old, things that succeeded in making me sad in the past.
But you know what? Remember my philosophy of the early morning sun and revelation? With the early morning sun, my lows of yesterday are gone. I can boldly tell myself that JOY COMETH WITH THE MORNING! Yes, I may have been flung down the mountain for a day, but I have got my mountain climbing gear and I'm rising up again to see the top of the mountain.
I am smiling as I am climbing back up. I remember the beautiful view from the top of the mountain. Oh, it was so beautiful! To be on top and to see the world below with the eyes of God! To be on top and to know that nothing can take you back down. To be on top and KNOW that you're an overcomer. To be on top and know that He that is in you is greater than he that is in the world. Oh, to be on top and know that all your fears, worries, and anxieties are safely in God's hands. It is this view from the top of the mountain that keeps the mountain climber going. He is determined to keep climbing higher and higher because he knows how he would feel once he gets to his destination. So is it with us Christians, we must keep climbing because our destination is indescribable.
A million years spent in climbing a mountain to meet God is worth it when we consider even one day spent in His presence.
