“A mountain of God is the mountain of Bashan; a mountain of many peaks is the mountain of Bashan. Why do you look with envy, O mountains with many peaks, at the mountain which God has desired for His abode? Surely the Lord will dwell there forever.” (Psalm 68:15-16)
Did you catch this? Every mountain is the Lord’s. Why do you worry about special places, they all belong to the Lord. Why do you worry about special times, all time belongs to the Lord. The Lord has come into our midst and calls us to abide with Him. When He lifts us up to abide with Him, we are the mountain of Bashan, for the word means to be fruitful and those who are in the Lord are fruitful.
Lord, You have spoken time and again about growing in truth and about bearing fruit. You have mentioned the goodness of Your law and having it grow in us. Lead me to see the good things You are growing in me that I would become one of Your mountains where You dwell. Guide me in Your ways, O Lord, and I will walk in them. Open my heart to truth that I would hold fast to it.
Lord Jesus, You are the One who will lead me up every mountainside and along every stream. Guide me according to Your purposes to see in You the hope of glory and the goodness You have given by Your grace. Help me now and always to be guided by Your will and way that I may be a high dwelling place now and always. Thank You, Jesus, for giving grace. Amen.
