HIGHER GROUND


The old hymn, “Higher Ground” is a spiritual declaration of one determined man Johnson Oatman, Jr. put to music! While some refuse to believe that our personal faith plays any real role in our spiritual growth and in experiencing Christian victory, in all my 20 years of preaching and being a pastor, I'VE NEVER SEEN A PERSON WHO IS SIMULTANEOUSLY WALKING IN VICTORY WHILE TALKING DEFEAT!



Johnson Oatman Jr. declared by way of song his refusal to live and function among the doubters.


VERSE 2 OF HIGHER GROUND BY JOHNSON OATMAN JR.


My heart has no desire to stay

Where doubts arise and fears dismay

Tho' some may dwell where these abound

My prayer, my aim is higher ground.
