Mountains surrounded me
A dense fog covered the ground
Making visibility nearly impossible
When would the skies clear
Would I ever make it out of a mountain view?
In the Christian life, it seems like we are never completely out of view of mountains. Even if everything seems to be going fine and dandy, we can still be surrounded by mountains even if they may not be our own.
“Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.”
Mountains are a beautiful part of creation.
God can use mountains for our good.
He uses testing and trying times to mold us into what He wants us to be for His glory.
Satan can creep in, whispering how weak we are. He can make us doubt we will ever make it through.
Our God is the only one capable of moving mountains.
1 Cor. 10:13
“There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”
If God puts a mountain in our path, it’s because He knows we will grow because of it and with His help we will make it through.
Years ago, when I hiked Mt. Monadnock with my family, it seemed like it was going to take forever to make it to the top. Constantly watching my every step, so I wouldn’t trip and fall down. Breathless and tired, once we made it to the top it was so worth it. The view from the top of a mountain is amazing.
We don’t have to worry and fear over mountains in our path.
Whether they be sickness, broken down car, failed relationships, debt, etc., we will make it through.
Day by day. Moment by moment.
We may endure, but we will survive because we have God on our side.
Don’t fret about mountains that come our way. The view from the top is amazing.
With God’s strength, He can move any mountain He sets in front of us.
All we have to do is trust that He will.
I Peter 5:7
“Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”
What mountains are you facing today?
Will you give your burden to God and let Him take care of it?
