God Loves High Places

Written by Joe Dardano

Ever wonder why God loves high places like the top of mountains? More specifically, I am referring to a verse in Isaiah 2:3 “Many peoples shall come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; that he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths.” For out of Zion shall go forth instruction, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.” In high places, your perspective changes on life. You see the big picture. You see the little things like resentments, anger, jealousy, betrayal, duplicity, lying and other sins in perspective to the huge amounts of grace offered by God and potentially by us to forgive others who hurt us. In high places, like mountain tops, those venues help offer a view that the little things that drag us down dont have to be permanent or ruin our state of grace with God. It tells us of the potential triumph of spirit over flesh, if we decide to rise above the gutter of sinfulness and seek the face of God. When we find that higher perspective, we live in the light of God (Isaiah 2:5). The light of God gives us power to deny the urging of sin: “the night is far gone, the day is near. Let us then lay aside the works of darkness and put on the armor of light; let us live honorably as in the day, not in reveling and drunkenness, not in debauchery and licentiousness, not in quarreling and jealousy. Instead, put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.” (Romans 13: 12-14) You see light is referred to here as “armor.” Faith, protected by prayer to renounce satan daily and immersion in the Word of God, is like a shield to protect us from harm. So seek high places, so that you are inspired and lifted higher inside you to see things as God sees them.
