I believe this hymn will bless your life today. Sing it out loud if you can.
God bless us.
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 Heaven’s table land;
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.”
Wonderful De preacher, thank you for sharing this poem, the Higher ground is found in Christ Jesus fully conformed into His image, perfected in Love, it is what Paul asked us to aim for forgetting our childish understanding and behaviour.
1 John 4:17-19 Herein is our Love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in Love; but perfect Love casteth out fear because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in Love. We Love Him, because He first Loved us.
1 Peter 2:8-10 But ye are a chosen Generation, a Royal Priesthood, an Holy Nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvellous light; Which in time past were not a people, but are now the People of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
God bless you greatly De preacher. and those you Love
Christian Love from both of us – Ron and Anne.
God bless you too and the family.
I pray Lord lead us on to Higher Ground in Jesus’ Name.
All things are possible.
God bless us
The higher ground in today’s world is quite often simply the ground where only pure love is expressed.
True talk. We need to love one another as people of God.
God bless us
