Dim Sum – Higher Ground

  1. My life’s favorite hymn is Higher Ground by Johnson Oatman Jr. It has reminded me all these years of how I shall travel the straight and narrow, and not get side-tracked to the popular broad way that leads to destruction. He has taught me to be single-minded in my mission and I can testify that He indeed has honored me in my obedience by leading and sustaining me on higher ground with Him.

  1.  Here are  the words which have meant so  much to reflect my desire in Christ:

  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.

    • Refrain:
      Lord, lift me up and let me stand,
      By faith, on Heaven’s tableland,
      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.

It has been important for me spiritually to know where I am headed,
According to the Word of God – not if, or what if.

I know I must achieve higher ground every day
With the Lord come what may.

As I pray for His affirmation,
He plants my feet on higher ground as He leads me.
What a blessing it has been as I need no other’s affirmation
In this world of unbelief, doubt, fears and scorn.
My confidence is not in self but in Him and His Word.

As I am yielded to Him and stay in constant touch with Him before His throne of grace,
He sees that it is not my desire to stay where doubts and fears abound.
He grants my desire with His assurance, authority and miracles in my life
Which I do not have to justify to those who wish to remain where they are.
He takes responsibility for them.

Yes, I have heard His call to faith based on His Word
And as I respond I fly above and do not mind the darts of Satan and his followers.

The Lord calls me to sit at His feet daily and join those who know all things are possible with Him.

He promises to guide my steps aright till I scale the utmost heights with Him.
At those levels, He protects me and will guide me safely to heaven’s tableland.
Praise the Lord.

Yes it is wonderful to scale the heights with God.
Only then can one lift up the fallen and cheer the discouraged
For those in the pit stops cannot lift and can only pull down.

Have you experienced the God that I serve and experience life with?
I wish Him for you today.

    Yes, the Lord calls for us to sit at His feet daily and then to get up off our derrieres and WALK the wilderness road with Him!

      Amen it is only when we have something to give from the Lord, that we can share with others who walk the wilderness road . We need to be on higher ground to lift others.
