World History and Biblical accounts give many examples of people who reach the highest pinnacle in their life accomplishments only to fall or fail.
Ponder the failure of King David. AT the very TOP of his Life’s Goals. He sins majorly. He falls but repentance and God’s Forgiveness and Grace restore his life but he must live now by God’s Rules Psalm 55
The air at the top of any high mountain can be toxic unless right breathing is maintained.
Mountaineers know this well. If you stand too long admiring the view you could die on the descent because of oxygen deprivation.
We who follow the Saviour need to remember that sacrifice of self is part of our journey. It must be HIS Strength that sustains us and His Breath that gives us LIFE.
Breathe on us today O Lord. Make us WHOLLY THINE.
The Summit in our life should not be our goal …..finishing the race is.
Eternity is as at the finish line and Hills and valleys are part of the journey. His PLAN …… HIS WAY. .Breathing His Breath of life.
CONFESSION and REPENTENCE……..Forgiveness and HIS GRACE the rhythm of life.
