Standing on the Heights

24 Feb

Psalm 18:31-33
For who is God besides the LORD?  And who is the Rock except our God?  It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect.  He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he enables me to stand on the heights.

There is nothing like the feeling you get when you stand on a high summit overlooking all of creation.  It is like you are king (or queen) over all you survey.

It is God’s desire for us to be victorious in life.  He wants us to stand on the mountaintop events of our lives and know the thrill of the moment.  Realize that the Lord rejoices over our accomplishments.

But during those “peak” experiences – whether an actual mountain or some other achievement – we need to acknowledge the Lord as our source of strength.  We must follow the example of the Psalmist.  It is obvious that he knows the joys of victory.  But he also knows where that victory came from.  He gives credit and honor to God as the One who enables him to do these exploits.

Today – look back on your journey and praise God for His hand at work in you.  It is He who gives you the strength and guidance that you need to make it to the tops of your personal “mountains.”  Show Him your gratefulness for all He has done in your life.  In that way you will be prepared for the victories yet to come.
