The Journey Of Up

7 Sep

The Journey Of Up…

Several decades ago, at this time of year, Israel became a nation again, with Jewish people returning to their ancient homeland. They made “aliyah.” Aliyah tells you where your life is to be heading.

The Gospels always speak of Yeshua, Jesus going UP to Jerusalem – always UP. Jerusalem, was set on the Judean hills, but more importantly, when you’re going to God you always go up. The journey was called aliyah, the journey of ascending.

Whenever someone goes to the Holy Land, it’s said they’re “making aliyah.” If you go to Israel, or from Israel to Jerusalem, you’re making aliyah. If you’re born again, your life is now to become a spiritual aliyah.

Your direction is UP, heavenward. Apostle Paul would write of pressing on in the “upward” call. You, too, have an upward call. Every day, you have a choice between a higher and lower step.

So every day, choose always the higher step over the lower, the more heavenly over the less. Dare to go for the highest. You’ll be amazed at what happens to your life – going up – making aliyah.

I rejoiced with those who said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.” Our feet are standing in your gates, Jerusalem. Jerusalem is built like a city that is closely compacted together. That is where the tribes go up—the tribes of the Lord—to praise the name of the Lord according to the statute given to Israel. There stand the thrones for judgment, the thrones of the house of David. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May those who love you be secure. May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels.” For the sake of my family and friends, I will say, “Peace be within you.” For the sake of the house of the Lord our God, I will seek your prosperity. Psalm 122

Make it your aim to take the higher step today, and keep taking it until you rise to higher ground.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
