Good morning people who regularly take time to commune with God
Biblically, on top of a hill refers to a meeting place with God.
Now before you say, “No, it was a mountain, not a hill”, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, there is no official difference between hills and mountains.
Many of the Patriarchs of old met with God on top of a hill.
Abraham encountered the God of Provision on top of a hill:
Genesis 22:14 NIV So Abraham called that place The Lord Will Provide. And to this day it is said, “On the mountain of the Lord it will be provided.”
Moses met with God in top of a hill, and it was there that he was given the Ten Commandments from God:
Exodus 19:3 NIV Then Moses went up to God, and the Lord called to him from the mountain and said, “This is what you are to say to the descendants of Jacob and what you are to tell the people of Israel…”
Elijah challenged and defeated the 450 prophets of Baal through an incredible miraculous victory on top of Mount Carmel:
1 Kings 18:19 NIV Now summon the people from all over Israel to meet me on Mount Carmel. And bring the four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal and the four hundred prophets of Asherah, who eat at Jezebel’s table.”
1 Kings 18:40 NIV “Then Elijah commanded them, “Seize the prophets of Baal. Don’t let anyone get away!” They seized them, and Elijah had them brought down to the Kishon Valley and slaughtered there.”
Yes, God is everywhere, but there are definitely times of “being set apart”; times of encounter when we put everything else aside, and make an effort to go and meet with God.
When we meet with God, the supernatural is released.
