What does it mean when you are coming up to higher ground? What does this require of you? We must understand that when we have been entrusted with something, we are then required to be responsible for it. Let’s take a moment to discuss “Higher Ground.”
There is no way of knowing when the time would come that you find yourself being at a place of higher ground. What does this mean? Higher ground can become evident as a result of how you responded to the times of testing. It can be seen in those who have shown they can be trusted with little. Some of us believe we can accomplish what can take years to walk in. Higher ground should not be looked upon as a level of fame or fortune but where your heart is, what is your true character?
The responsibility can be overwhelming when you find yourself on higher ground and can also be fulfilling. This comes as a result of knowing how you were with less and what is evident when you have more. It becomes noticeable where pride takes over the heart and a sense of entitlement. God is very aware even if we are not being honest about it. He desires to help each of us to know Him deeper and trust Him on another level as we grow. He grants us giftings and talents, not only for our own good but as a blessing to others.
When God spoke to Peter to step out of the boat and come to Him (Matthew 14:29), He was asking Peter to step up to higher ground. It is liberating to step out of what may have felt like limits. It is uncommon to find yourself doing what others may not see capable. Take this moment to examine where you are and seek God about coming up to higher ground. Be willing to obey His leading and do so by faith!
Share with me where you are. Do you find yourself this year walking up to higher ground? If so, be honest about what has been your response to this calling even if it seems unusual. Higher ground requires a level of faith and doing some things that may be uncomfortable or not usual. Thank you reading and sharing where you are in stepping up into higher ground. Let’s continue to take moments together.

Great post. Love this
It definitely requires faith, but also accountability and responsibility. Find your why, don’t ignore the calling…
In recent years, I have made a conscious effort to seek higher ground for myself. It was a necessity to move past some very difficult struggles. It’s a work in progress because my faith faltered.
It is an amazing post and has great information. You got me thinking!
