This favorite hymn of mine has kept me gaining ground in the Lord through seven decades of my life. Without purpose to attain higher ground I have slipped many times alone the way, depending on my flesh and yielding to temptation. Howver by faith and the strength of the Lord the Holy Spirit has helped me attain higher heights, not regressing. May you my fellow pilgrim also purposely live for higher ground with the Spirit’s help.
Zechariah 4:6 ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ saith the Lord of hosts.
