Careful of the Downhill

downhillWe had just climbed six miles with an elevation gain of over 2,100 feet. We enjoyed the sites on the way up and the wondrous views of both Riverside and Orange Counties from up top. Yeah, it was difficult. And yes, we were hot and sweaty by the time we took a break for lunch. But, the return back to our car was all downhill. Easy right?
Not so fast. For me anyway, going down was harder on my hip (genetics is a wonderful thing) and stress fractured left toe than it was going up! You’re good tired. You’re heading down hill. What could be better? Relaxing too much! You can get going too fast and put added stress on your joints.
When you’re on top of the world after a personal victory or seeing the Spirit work in a mighty way, be careful. This is when the enemy loves to attack. Elijah ran from Jezebel right after a huge God empowered victory. (1 Kings 18-19)
Jesus said to watch and pray for such a time. He wants you to continue praising Him for and walking in that victory.
