God's Call to the Next Level 1


Each morning I open my eyes early so I have time to spend with my Lord before the busy day begins. This morning~

“Thank You for wakening me, and for the good night’s sleep, Holy Spirit. Still trying to climb up through the haze though. If I don’t move I’ll just sit here in a stupor; a cup of coffee will help. Then please Lord, help me hear You, as I bow down before You. . .

He does not make me wait long~

You are the hidden One, the One not quite seen, but always there, Holy Spirit. In that sense, You are like the wind~ one can’t see it, but you know when it is there. I am reminded of a poem learned in first grade:

Who has seen the wind?
Neither you nor I
but when the leaves are moving,
the wind is passing by.

You have indicated You are calling me up to the next level in my life. “It will be difficult, You warn me, but if you keep your eyes on Me, it will be ok.” I trust You, Lord!


It is going to be like a mountain that must be climbed. You Jesus are my strength. Difficult tasks can be made easy with You. I see a rugged mountain, and at the top is a luminescence. It draws me. Eyes on the peak, I walk back and forth at the foot by the base camp. You, O Jesus, are my base, my foundation:



Isaiah 28:16 Living Bible
But the Lord God says,
“See, I am placing a Foundation Stone in Zion—
a firm, tested, precious Cornerstone that is safe to build on.
He who believes need never run away again.





Yes, Jesus, You are my foundation, the cornerstone of my life. In a nearby tent is the equipment that will be needed to reach the top. It will be arduous, but with my Jesus all things are possible. I trust in Him, my foundation, to help get me up this mountain. 





Dressing slowly I draw on a set of insulated long undergarments. They keep warmth close to my body [I keep tuned in constantly to my Holy Spirit connection.] Then I pull on layers of clothing to help keep body temperature regulated [each garment a prayer of my friends, and my prayers for His wisdom.] I clip warm gloves and a special hat to my belt~ truth Scriptures of His promises. He will guide my hands and protect my mind from enemy attacks. [Oh yes, there is an enemy who will try and stop me.]


Next comes my overall suit streamlined with special flexibility to move around and up difficult areas~ it’s threads are intertwined with Jesus’ words to add strength to mind and muscles. My jacket, custom-lined with heat retention feathers of the Father’s love, is my sure protection against storms I may encounter. Next come sunglasses with specialty lenses that show me the way to go, opening up a good path and shielding my mind from erroneous vision that indicates deceptive trails. My way will be clearly marked by my indwelling Holy Spirit.


I don the sunglasses, walk out of the tent into bright sunshine. Raising my eyes   I smile at the beauty of the pristine whiteness reflecting off the peaks high above. The only sound~ an echo of the wind; it focuses my mind on the task ahead. The mighty peaks call out in God’s glory!


Psalm 46:10 AMPC
Let be and be still,
and know (recognize and understand) that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations!
I will be exalted in the earth!



For a short time I just stand, listening to the stillness with my eyes beholding His glory. I praise Him as my sight shifts to the trail head. I am ready; my protection is more than adequate. I inhale deeply and take the first step on my journey to the next level. Feeling His protection. . .
