Daily Devotional - 30th August, 2012 - Get up the Mountain

Daily Devotional - 30th August, 2012

When I’m feeling stressed, I have a little phrase I tell myself. I say, ‘Pete, it’s time to get up the mountain.’

Getting up the mountain for me symbolises something of getting away from the hustle and bustle and pushing aside all the urgent expectations to stop for a minute. I mean, this is what Jesus did often. He went up the mountain to pray, and probably for some R&R. I mean, imagine being constantly swamped by hundreds of people, wanting from you, asking of you, requesting from you, needing from you... Get up the mountain is a figurative way of saying, get away from the hustle and bustle. Take a prayer break. Recharge the batteries in God. Refuel the faith tank. Getting up the mountain and away from the busyness is what you need to do. Try getting up the mountain. Try to find a moment contemplating on the God who created you and you might find a whole bunch of energy and a revitalisation that you never imagined.
Ponder: Where do you go and what do you do to ‘get up the mountain’?
Bible: Matthew 8:1-4
