Everyone has moments when we feel good about ourselves and fit for anything. Many people have ‘mountaintop moments’ that soon evaporate away, mainly because they find it hard to bring the standard of everyday life to the reality revealed when they were on the mountaintop. Martin Luther King had a mountaintop vision that transcended the racial divide based on the content of ones character. I believe that President Barack Obama is a reality of that vision.
I believe he has received the revelation of that vision from the mountaintop and is now down in the valley—battered, shaped and molded by God.
Pray that President Obama allows the potter to put him on his wheel to be molded to the potter’s desires. Pray that he remains steadfast from the fiery darts of Satan who is trying to block and confuse him in the most common everyday ways through common everyday people. We must do all we can as children of God to receive the reality of the vision. We have to pay attention and remove all doubt, remaining morally and spiritually strong. This vision is a particular truth from God, not what we have already attained or already perfected—but we must press on (Philippians 3:12). If President Obama continues in the inspiration of the vision of God, he has more than he can experience.
