The Place of Exaltation

My Utmost His Highest

". . . Jesus took . . . them up on a high mountain apart by themselves . . ." (Mark 9:2)

The true test of our spiritual life is in exhibiting the power to descend from the mountain. If we only have the power to go up, something is wrong. It is a wonderful thing to be on the mountain with God, but a person only gets there so that he may later go down and lift up the demon-possessed people in the valley (see Mark 9:14-18). We are not made for the mountains, for sunrises, or for the other beautiful attractions in life — those are simply intended to be moments of inspiration. We are made for the valley and the ordinary things of life, and that is where we have to prove our stamina and strength. . . The mountaintop is not meant to teach us anything, it is meant to make us something. (read more) (purchase)
