ENCOURAGE WORDS FROM EVANS ABOUT SUMMIT ANY MOUNTAIN IN LIFE
There are four rules to follow to summit the Kilimanjaro/ Mountain.
- Have a good attitude.
- Eat well – even if our appetite slips, we need the energy.
- Drink lots of water –and don’t just wait until you’re thirsty.
- Pole pole (pronounced pho-lay, pho-lay), which means move slowly, slowly, but keep moving.
In my entire life when I was a porter, guide then Baraka Trails owner, walking up and down the mountain, I thought about the spiritual applications of these truths. They seem so simple, but when the pressure is on, they make all the difference. And I realized they’re true whether we’re climbing a physical mountain or the spiritual mountains we all face.“Your attitude determines your altitude” Sibusiso Vilane
1. Have a Good Attitude
Philippians 2:5–7 records Paul’s description of a good attitude: “Have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant.…”
A hard-won victory is best built on a foundation of humility.
It is easy to be humble in the face of the African roof and the breathtaking beauty of God’s creation. If we have eyes to see, we can experience that same humility throughout our lives as we face each challenging mountain, delight in God’s beautiful creation and enjoy the gift of salvation/ climbing.
2&3. Eat Well and Drink Lots of Water
These rules making me think of Matthew 4:4, where Jesus said, “It is written: Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”
It’s important that we have good nutrition, physically and spiritually for life’s mountains. And just as we need water to process our food, we need the Spirit to enlighten our reading of God’s word.
4. Go Slowly, Slowly
“Pole pole” seemed like foolishness.
But the people who summit the mountain eat well, and then they leave camp. Every step, pole pole, to toward the goal.
Reaching the Summit
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him, he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Hebrews 12:1–2, NIV).
Let us run with perseverance with our eyes fixed on Jesus. Then our attitude will be humble, our diet healthy, our water plentiful and the summit of Kilimanjaro mountain a gift from God!
