We’re always so much in awe of the majestic views of the mountains. And, with the breathtaking views, we can’t help but appreciate how beautiful they are. Then there goes out our cameras and phones to get the best angles here and there. Some people climb to the top of it to visualize their dreams and, thinking about reflections in life.
Mountains are landforms that rise towards the sky where the heavens meet the earth which is believed by some people to get closer to God. When we were young, we used to go camping with our fellow Christians and churchmates in the far-flung mountains. We build our tents like scouts. No electricity and phone signals. Our water naturally flows from the water reservoir of streams. We can hear the river rustling and birds chirping. The camp usually lasts for three days and, we participate yearly during summer. We listen to testimonies and fellowship with one another. Then that camp produced many Pastors and Bible Women.
On Mt. Sinai, Moses received the Ten Commandments (Exodus 19-20, 24). The transfiguration of Jesus took on Mt. Tabor where he appeared before the eyes of the disciples next to Moses and Elijah (Matthew 17:1-9). On the Mt. of Olives, Jesus prayed before His arrest and crucifixion (Luke 22:39-49, Acts 1:9-12). Mountain tops are one of the places that reveal God’s glory and a reminder that His sovereignty is everywhere.
