GOD ON THE MOUNTAIN

Life is easy, when you’re up on the mountain
And you’ve got peace of mind, like you’ve never known
But things change, when you’re down in the valley
Don’t lose faith, for you’re never alone
For the God on the mountain, is the God in the valley
When things go wrong, He’ll make them right
And the God of the good times
Is still God in the bad times
The God of the day is still God in the night
We talk of faith way up on the mountain
Talk comes so easy when life’s at its best
Now down in the valleys, of trials and temptations
That’s where your faith, is really put to the test
For the God on the mountain is the God in the valley
When things go wrong, He’ll make them right
And the God of the good times
Is still God in the bad times
The God of the day, is still God in the night
The God of the day, is still God in the nigh   (Lyrics as sung by Lynda Randal)

In our typical American days and weeks, being bombarded with all sorts of negativity, it is so very easy to be “down.” I don’t know what triggers you, but for me it is loneliness, lack of finances, the feeling of uselessness, and frankly growing older. The devil, being who he is, doesn’t bring these things on us one at a time in order for us to deal with them systematically; but rather, he brings them all at once! When he does, the valleys of life seem so deep and so never-ending that often times we feel despair and that God, Himself, has left us. We begin to think that we alone, abandoned.

Down in that valley is where we need to remember that God is still there with us and has given his rod (discipline) and staff (authority) to comfort us. It is there that the Word is somehow drawn out of us (assuming you put in there in the first place) and we recall that it is not God who has abandoned us but rather the accusations and trials have come from the enemy, an enemy who God said we are to condemn (Is 54:17).

As we rise up to take that authority, we realize God has been with us all along. He was still God in those bad times. And He is, as the above lyrics say, God of the day AND God of the night. When it seems like Friday, we must remember that Sunday is coming, that God has a plan for our lives, and that we have the victory. Hallelujah! Our God reigns.

One thought on “GOD ON THE MOUNTAIN

    Thank you so much for the encouragement. God never leaves us, that is the reality, however, the enemy always tries to entice us not to believe what God has spoken. When we feel ourselves going into that dark place of despair, loneliness, and or place of lack, the enemy is feeding us his lies! I strive to always walk in the Authority given by God so that the enemy has no power to take me to a place in which God has called me out of! Thank You again. Powerful and on time.
