Ain't No Mountain High Enough!

We can run, but we can't hide! Many who have been called to the ministry of movement have had challenging times in which it felt like the sacrifice was too great. The rejection, pressure, expenses, time, energy, lost relationships, and unexpected life situations have many believing that it is time to give up. The moment of the race that is the most painful is near the end. It is here that the legs seem to want to stop moving, the heartbeat pounds at maximum capacity, and the lungs burn like intense fire. It is here that the reward is obtained.

When the people in the Bible wanted to honor other gods, they would set up a monument on a high mountain. God gave instructions many times that these false idols should be thrown down. When Jesus was tempted, satan took Him upon a high mountain to show what he could offer. In our lives, there should be no "mountain" high enough to get us to walk away from the Lord, or serve anything else but His purpose. We must speak to every high place in our lives to come under the subjection of Christ!

Whatever our "issues" may be, the Lord will sustain us if we desire to be set free. Our testimonies will birth many dances that will see the prisoner unshackled if we allow the Lord to have His way in us. Let us continue to move by His Spirit, knowing that there is nothing higher than the Lord our God. Glory to God in the Highest!

Deuteronomy 12:2 (NKJV)
You shall utterly destroy all the places where the nations which you shall dispossess served their gods, on the high mountains and on the hills and under every green tree.

Amos 4:13 (NKJV)
For behold, He who forms mountains, and creates the wind, Who declares to man what his thought is, and makes the morning darkness, Who treads the high places of the earth— The LORD God of hosts is His name.

Habakkuk 3:10 (NKJV)
The mountains saw You and trembled; The overflowing of the water passed by. The deep uttered its voice, and lifted its hands on high.

Matthew 4:8-9 (NKJV)
Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.”
