MOUNTAIN TOP


Mark 2:9

"After six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John with
him and led them up a high mountain, where they were
all alone. There he was transfigured before them." (NIV)


"And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and
James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high
mountain apart by themselves: and he was
transfigured before them." (KJV)


It is an awesome thing to have a mountain top
experience with the Lord. It seems like those times
just don't happen to us very often. The thing is, the
Lord did not intend for us to stay on the mountain
top nor to seek the mountain top experience. He
takes us to a very precious spiritual place so that we
will be energized and equipped spiritually to live day
by day in the valley of the difficult world in which we
live. We are not to seek those mountain top
experiences, we are to seek Him. He will take us
to the mountain top when He sees fit.


Heavenly Father, we humbly seek You and ask for
Your forgiveness when we seek the mountain top
experiences. We thank you for those times that you
take us to a place with You by ourselves to be
refreshed and ready to live in the valley where days
become alike and the road gets rough. May You find
us about Your business and seeking You from day to
day. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Thank you so much for this message. I haven't mentioned this to many folks, but when my son died several years ago; I had that mountain top experience with the Lord. I am here today to testify that our Lord gave me the strength to continue on in this life. Blessings, Lloyd
