“SEEING THE crowds, He went up on the mountain; and when He was seated, His disciples came to Him.”
– Matthew 5:1 –
I have read this verse of the Scripture time without number but the kind of revelation I got from it this morning was mind blowing.
In this Bible passage Jesus through His ACTION told us the position we ought to occupy when we see the crowd.
You cannot claim to be the head while you mix yourself up with the crowd. It is no arrogance to work on yourself to the extent that you become positioned at the helm of affairs in your industry. Trust me, if you continue with the crowd, with time you will get lost.
When you discover that your industry is becoming populated with crowd at the plain, it is a divine calling to move up to the mountain. Why? It is at the mountain that the spotlight falls on you. At the mountain, you see and can be seen. When you speak, you can be heard.
Every field of life has its mountain. And those who remain at the valley never amounts to anything. They end up as followers, copycats and always ever learning people and never able to come to full knowledge of the truth.
At the mountain top of your career, not everyone will be privileged to know the principles of your success except those who deserve you and strongly want to learn from you – others end up as fans.
No matter how intelligent you are, until you work yourself up the mountain of your industry or career, most people may never hear nor see you.
They are people whose destinies are connected to you that may never see getting to the industry-mountain as something doable until you do it. None of the disciples of Christ ever thought of moving up to the mountain when they were almost overtaken by the crowd until Jesus set the pace. And today, bear it in mind that they are people whose rising you are delaying when you refuse to move up.
I charge you today to come up to the mountain where you can see and be seen, and you will be glad to you did.
