What do the words higher ground really mean and why should we seek them? Christians should desire a closer walk with God every day. In order to have that closer walk, we need to realize that we must set our minds on spiritual things and not the things of the flesh.
Evil will try to ensnare, try to hold you down, but you have a God that loves you so much that He sent His one and only Son to die for your sins so that you would have an opportunity to spend eternity with Him in Heaven.
That is the God that I want to walk with daily. I owe everything I am to God. Everything that I have is because of His love and His sacrifice.
Higher ground simply means that you desire that close relationship with Him. You are tired of living life on your own terms and you are ready to get out of the situation that is currently holding you down.
Higher ground is stepping over the roadblocks that the evil one places in our paths. It is recognizing the plans of destruction and making the choice not to follow them. It is a fulfilled relationship with Jesus Christ.
Lord, draw us closer to You each day and plant our feet on higher ground.
