“Hear my cry, o God; attend to my prayer.  From the end of the earth I will cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.”  Psalm 61:1-2, NKJ

The high place….it’s a place above the chaos that can so easily weigh us down. It’s a place of rest and tranquility for our weary mind.  It’s a place where God’s perspective Reigns and where Supernatural peace abounds.  Although trials may come our way, there is a higher place to which we can run and receive comfort and grace – it’s the place of God’s Presence.

It is through this high place of God that we are lifted up and out of our circumstances. The emotions and thoughts of our flesh must bow in the high place of God thus allowing our spirit to rule.  It was in this high place where David was able to declare in Psalm 46:1-4, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.  Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; though its waters roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with its swelling.  There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God.”  This high place in God quiets our heart and gives us a heavenly vantage point to view our circumstances below.

The past few months, it has been my goal to remain the high place of God. Some days were easier than others, but even when my emotions and thoughts began to overwhelm me, I immediately cried out to God to take me higher.  It was through reading His Word, listening to worship music, praying to God alone and with faithful sisters in Christ that I was able to come up and out of my circumstances and into the high place of God. 

Is it time for you to come up friend? Has the trials of life been pulling you down?  I promise there is a sweet presence of God waiting for you in the high place.  God is longing to take you up and out of the bondages that hold you down and show you His wonderful plan for your life.  He longs to give you His heavenly perspective and shower you with His wisdom and grace.  Will you join me today in going to the high place of God?


“Lord, take me to the high place today.  I give you my hurt and disappointment.  I run to Your Word and ask that it speak to me for such a time as this.  Show me how to go higher in You and give me the strategy for the situations on earth.  I declare that You are my refuge and strength and I will not fear.  Amen.”
