A Shout from the Mountaintop

Isaiah 42:10-11
Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise from the ends of the earth, you who go down to the sea, and all that is in it, you islands, and all who live in them.  Let the desert and its towns raise their voices; let the settlements where Kedar lives rejoice. Let the people of Sela sing for joy; let them shout from the mountaintops.

Being on a mountaintop always gives me an exhilarating feeling.  It is hard thing to describe all the sensations that accompany it.  I cannot fully express them to someone who has never seen the clouds blowing by beneath their feet, or felt the wind whipping over the peak, or stood in awe to see the breathtaking landscape spread out before them.  Just being there evokes such a feeling on the inside that I want to burst out in praise to my God.

Sometimes, when I am alone on a peak, I will sing or pray out loud to the Lord.  At those times, the presence of the Spirit of God is undeniable.  I challenge you to look for those opportunities.  We must seek out the times when God makes His presence especially real to us.

Maybe you have never heard yourself pray, praise God, or sing out loud before.  Don’t let timidity stop you from experiencing a breakthrough in your Christian walk.  Try it out the next time you find yourself alone in God’s presence, even if it feels a little uncomfortable at first.  You will find that there is an awesome revelation of God when you praise Him audibly.  Experience it for yourself.  See the joy and freedom that fills your heart as you open up in His amazing presence.

If this has helped you, write me a comment about what you experienced.
