I’m pressing on the upward way

I’m pressing on the upward way,
New heights I’m gaining every day;
Still praying as I onward bound,
“Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”
  Lord, lift me up, and let me stand
By faith on Canaan’s tableland;
A higher plane than I have found,
  Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.
My heart has no desire to stay
Where doubts arise and fears dismay;
Though some may dwell where these abound,
My prayer, my aim, is higher ground.
I want to live above the world,
Though Satan’s darts at me are hurled;
For faith has caught the joyful sound,
The song of saints on higher ground.
I want to scale the utmost height
And catch a gleam of glory bright;
But still I’ll pray till rest I’ve found,
“Lord, lead me on to higher ground.”

Climbing the mountain of life, we have to press on the upward way, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith. Don't give up until you win that battle of life staring at your face.

Each time that I find myself in the valley of life, of distress and discomfort, of pains and agony, of loneliness and trepidation, when confidante turn her back, and I am tempted to denounce God, this is one of the lyrics that assure me of God's mightiness, of hope and of dignified strength that "tough times never last".

I woke up only to see frost covered my lawn and and my fruit trees. I said to my husband it is early for frost in northern Florida. I got dressed went to drop my foster kids of for school came back looked at the plants and saw how in one night molecules of water that are present in the air when temperatures plummet quickly to subzero levels can cause such damage. I stood in awe at how short life can be. I began to think what do I value more? Is it the plant or is it God? And in a moment the song came to “Lord lift me up and let me stand”

With all the pandemic and everything going on in my life businesses have been rough money tight, my plants was what kept me going. But God is say come up higher I got you covered. I have such relief one can’t imagine. I even forgot the words of the hymn so I went to YouTube it.

"Though some may dwell where these abound but my prayer, my aim is higher ground" Thank you Jesus!

To be in the spirit is the key, the secret. In the spirit we will experience many wonderful things of Christ because we have crossed the Jordan and entered into Canaan. When we are in the spirit, we are in the rest, and we are in the Holy of Holies. Therefore, we must always renounce the natural man, the outer man. For example, many times in the Lord's work I was tempted by the enemy to quarrel with others. On those occasions I felt that my reason was right, that the case was mine, and that I had the doctrine to support me. Yet while I was trying to speak, something deep within restricted me and stopped me. In order to go along with that deep feeling, I had to drop my quarreling. Consequently, it seemed that I had nothing to say. But I can testify that every time I went along with the spirit, there was victory. If we take care of our spirit, the mighty One in our spirit will be our strength. We will be transcendent and victorious over many things. When we come to the meetings, we will come with many items of Christ to contribute, either in prayer, singing, giving a testimony, or speaking a short word. Philippians 4:13 says, "I am able to do all things in Him who empowers me." But where does Christ empower us? He empowers us in our spirit. Our mind is the stronghold and the open gate for the enemy, but our spirit is the base for the Lord to do His work. Thus, when we go along with the mind, we are defeated, even though we may be doing something good. But if we go along with the spirit, we will be victorious. We will be on a high mountain, on higher ground, and, in the words of a hymn, "on Canaan's tableland" (Hymns, #396). We will be in the heavens and will be transcendent.
