God uses so many things to get our attention. Over the last several weeks God has been drawing me closer to Himself through lessons in life and prayer. Mountains seem to be building in front of me. They are becoming a range not just one mountain.
So God’s been teaching me that we don’t always need to pray for the mountain to be moved, but sometimes we need to pray for the strength to climb the mountain. To draw our strength from God. To draw closer to Him and hear His still small voice.
It started with this passage
Matthew 17:20-21 He replied, “Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
I started questioning what are the mountains in my life that I need to have moved. Then my thought process moved from do the mountains need to be moved or climbed. As I continued to process this and started studying more God has been teaching me that sometimes they are to be moved, sometimes they need to be thrown into the sea, and sometimes they need to be climbed with the help of the only One who can help us reach the top.
Then on the way home from a meeting I heard this passage on the radio.
Matthew 21:21-22 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”
Then this song “Sometimes It Takes A Mountain” by the Gaither Band came on the radio. I just knew God was giving me this to help me continue to process my thoughts on the mountains in my life and what they are. What they might be used for. How I am to pray for the mountains and trust God to do what is best. I just need to trust Him and believe. No doubting that He will do what He is going to do, because HE IS GOD!
