The blessings of your father Have excelled the blessings of my ancestors, Up to the utmost bound of the everlasting hills. They shall be on the head of Joseph, And on the crown of the head of him who was separate from his brothers Genesis 49:26
There are times to walk through the valleys, but God has also called us to the everlasting hills. Only on those hills where we walk alone with God can He give us the blessings we will pass on to the next generation.On the mountain Abraham offered his son and discovered that God had provided a lamb. On the mountain Moses’ face began to glow in God’s presence then He was given the ten commandments on stone tablets.On the mountain Elijah saw the earthquake, the hurricane and the fire then he heard the still voice of God for Israel’s future.On the mountain Jesus prayed all night before He chose the twelve apostles. But of all these blessings which God gave none was greater than when He gave eternal life on the mountain called Calvary.
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur or hear the brook
Or feel the gentle breeze…then sings my soul! Carl Boberg
