Recently, I had a chance to visit the Blue Ridge mountains in North Carolina. It was an amazing experience to see the vistas of layers of mountains that slowed faded from green to blue.
I found myself thinking about the grandeur of this particular spot, but I was even more amazed when I stopped to realize that this is only one unique spot along the Blue Ridge Parkway. In other words, there are hundreds or thousands of vistas right around the spot I took this photograph. My mind began to race with all the areas that seem to scream out the glory of God through His creation. This isn’t even the only kind of mountains that He has created, is it? Think of all the unique ranges and the beauty of those peaks in their own specific climates throughout the world. What a marvelous God we serve.
Now that I am back to reality, enjoying God’s grace in my own home and neighborhood, it has dawned on me that there is a mountain coming that will be far more glorious than all others.
Micah 4:1 (NKJV) 1Now it shall come to pass in the latter days That the mountain of the Lord’s house Shall be established on the top of the mountains, And shall be exalted above the hills; And peoples shall flow to it.
This world gives us glimmers, shadows of a creation not tainted by sin and cursed. The next age will be far more glorious! Imagine the mountains there! Imagine what God has in store for His people to behold. We will enjoy Him on His holy mountain and give Him all the glory that He deserves!
