In the mountains with God

July 11, 2013

One of the great privileges living in Colorado is the ability to be deep in the mountains within an hour of jumping into the car.  Once a year or so I take off by myself and go for a drive with the Holy Spirit.  I bring some of my favorite Christian CDs,  like Casting Crowns and Chris Tomlin, and just drive listening, praising and enjoying God’s creation.  If you have never gone on a drive alone with the Holy Spirit, try it sometime.

The Bible has many verses about mountains.  Moses met God face to face on a mountain.

Exodus 19:16-19
On the morning of the third day there were thunders and lightnings and a thick cloud on the mountain and a very loud trumpet blast, so that all the people in the camp trembled. Then Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet God, and they took their stand at the foot of the mountain. Now Mount Sinai was wrapped in smoke because the Lord had descended on it in fire. The smoke of it went up like the smoke of a kiln, and the whole mountain trembled greatly. And as the sound of the trumpet grew louder and louder, Moses spoke, and God answered him in thunder.

Here are some others verses regarding mountains:

Judges 5:5The mountains quaked before the Lord, even Sinai before the Lord, the God of Israel.

Psalm 125:2As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people, from this time forth and forevermore.

Psalm 11:111:1 In the Lord I take refuge; how can you say to my soul, “Flee like a bird to your mountain,

Psalm 90:2Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

Isaiah 54:10For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you.

Judges 5:5The mountains quaked before the Lord, even Sinai before the Lord, the God of Israel.
