I lift up my eyes to the mountains — where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. — Psalm 121:1-2
Moses, spent years in preparation for his mountaintop: the moment on Mount Sinai when he was given the Ten Commandments. He had walked on sacred ground, released the captives in Egypt, and wandered in the wilderness for years. Finally, when he was alone on the mountaintop, God spoke to him.
You will know when you have reached a climactic moment on your journey when you experience inexpressible joy and clarity. It will renew your heart and give you the energy to keep walking back in the valley for a long while. The mountaintop heals us. It is where we can see great vistas and experience the euphoric feeling of standing in the clouds. We remember the psalmist, who wrote,
The mountaintop is where the Heavens and earth meet and where we feel lighter than the air we are breathing, where we are inspired to think new thoughts. It is an experience that revives, renews and transforms you, so that you can step into a new phase God has purposed for you.
These deliverers will go up to Mount Zion, My holy hill, and justly rule Mount Esau from there. And the kingdom they establish will belong to the Eternal One alone . – Obadiah 1:21
We are the deliverers who are to meet the Lord at the mountaintop; called to reign and judge. We are the ones who will bring the dominion of the Kingdom, where unrighteouness thrived.
