Higher Ground –Yes You Can!

Here is one of my life-drivers – the old hymn – Higher Ground
Words By Johnson Oatman Jr

1. I’m pressing on the upward way,
New heights I’m gaining every day;
Still praying as I’m onward bound,
“Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”
Lord, lift me up and let me stand,
By faith, on Heaven’s table land,
A higher plane than I have found;
Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.

2. My heart has no desire to stay
Where doubts arise and fears dismay;
Though some may dwell where those abound,
My prayer, my aim, is higher ground.

3. I want to live above the world,
Though Satan’s darts at me are hurled;
For faith has caught the joyful sound,
The song of saints on higher ground.

4.I want to scale the utmost height
And catch a gleam of glory bright;
But still I’ll pray till Heav’n I’ve found,
“Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”

From the age of 12, since my baptism and with my mother’s early coaching, I have adopted Higher Ground as one of my spiritual life motivators.

My mother said, If I did not have an aim, I would go nowhere and if I did not want spiritual defeat, I must have a plan to overcome.

Each day as I rise, it is my prayer that I will end the day on a higher plane than when I first began the day.

The details have evolved as I have progressed.

My life vision : Following Jesus, with new spiritual heights gained everyday
Where there is no vision the people perish – to achieve all that the Lord has in store for me to achieve for the day, in spirituality and evangelism.
My enablers : Prayer and the Holy Spirit – I can never achieve my vision by myself, it is only through dependence on the Lord and His strength that I will attain
Must avoid : Doubts and fears – these are the kill-joys of my faith and I must not stay in doubt or fear but look for anti-dotes in the Word, every time and as soon as possible.

My targets :
1.Live above the world – in the Name and strength of Jesus, don’t get distracted by worldly pursuits, and refuse to get hurt or discouraged by others’ actions or words or Satan’s darts
2 Scale the utmost height – seize every opportunity, be proactive, relentlessly climbing to achieve in consistent, faithful service, cheering the faithful, encouraging the weary, lending a hand to the fallen, sending forth the good news, and protected by the armor of God and His blood daily – I may not win all battles but I must win the war
3. Catch a gleam of glory bright – keep my eyes on the hope of glory, there is no room for despair and every reason for achieving in the face of challenges and threats.

Indeed, it is my prayer that this sharing will give new oomph! (spirited vigor) to those who are young in faith and who have not found their way to higher spiritual ground each day.

  • Lord, lift me up and let me stand,
    By faith, on Heaven’s table land,
    A higher plane than I have found;
    Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.
