Where is your mountain? Part I
Main Course: 3 God came from Teman, and the Holy One from mount Paran. Selah. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise.4 And his brightness was as the light; he had (Habakkuk 3:3-4; cf. Psalm 45:10-11; Song of Solomon).
On life’s journey, there are places of worship that have been assigned during particular seasons earmarked for promotion and change. This is our way of escape and also our meeting place with God. But we have to climb a mountain Him there. It will always be a sacrifice and a journey - a price to pay but well worth it. We will come back full and complete (Jam. 1:4), transformed / changed (Rms. 12:1-2), and converted (cf. Rms. 4:20-21; Lk. 22:32). At this mountain, this high place (i.e. Saul, Abraham) when God speaks, the earth responds to His voice and begins to echo His concerns, requests and commands. It calls to itself that which was spoken.
The mountains have said, “Come up to where we are, the Father would like to speak with you. Come where the glory covers the heavens, and the earth is full of his praise, where His brightness is as the Light and in His hands is the hiding of His power (Hab. 3:3-4). Come where you can see the glory resting upon you (2 Cor. 12:9; cf. Is. 6:1-6)”.
So when God calls us for special times to meet him, there is always a destined place of worship for His Spirit to meet our spirit which is on higher ground. It requires us to go up (climb the mountain to meet him). It will be a sacrifice to the flesh, the lower self to gain the spirit, the higher self – the true you who is in Christ. God is high and looks low, but never comes down low because he is Spirit that dwells on high. Remember, His kingdom is within, the power, the ability to connect, touch and meet with Him (Lk 17:20-21). We must come up where He is. (cont'd)
