God Can Move That Mountain!

Cliff-in-Clouds.jpgDo you believe that God is able to move the moun­tains in your life? No mat­ter who you are or what your life looks like, there are moun­tains that loom like great insur­mount­able obsta­cles. I’m talk­ing about obsta­cles of Mount Ever­est pro­por­tion.

It may look hope­less and your heart may be so heavy that you might as well have a 200 lb. pack on your back. Most of us have felt that way at some point in our lives. And most of us have no idea the kind of load that the peo­ple around us are car­ry­ing or what kind of moun­tains they are fac­ing.

Even in those sit­u­a­tions… Do you believe that God is able to move that moun­tain? Do you real­ly trust Him? Are you will­ing to go out on the ledge and let God direct where your foot­steps land?

I’m fac­ing some her­culean moun­tains in my own life right now and as I am slow­ly mak­ing my way on the side of this moun­tain in the dark and the cold and the unknown, I am learn­ing a lot about trust­ing God. With bleed­ing arms from scrap­ing the side of the moun­tain and an aching heart, I am learn­ing to trust God.

Peo­ple look­ing on have lots of opin­ions. Peo­ple love to tell oth­ers what they should do in any given sit­u­a­tion. The prob­lem is that God is the only one that knows where each and every crevice and crack are on the side of that moun­tain. It reminds me of what the Bible says about man’s wis­dom ver­sus God’s wis­dom.

Because the fool­ish­ness of God is wis­er than men, and the weak­ness of God is stronger than men. 1 Corinthi­ans 1:25

I can­not even count how many times in my life I have done things that accord­ing to oth­ers was fool­ish. But upon doing what God told me to do, I was able to climb to the top of moun­tains and soar with the eagles. Had I fol­lowed the advice and coun­sel of oth­ers, instead of God, I would have been out of His will for my life.

When faced with mas­sive obsta­cles and moun­tains there have been times when I have laid out a fleece and then had to wait for God to do what I knew only He could do. It can be a very dif­fi­cult place to be; that hold­ing and wait­ing place. It can be ago­niz­ing! It can also be very tempt­ing to try to move that moun­tain on your own. Remem­ber, that if you try to do what only God can do… you are in the way!

You do not know what God is doing in sit­u­a­tions and in oth­er peo­ple. Far too often we stop wait­ing pre­ma­ture­ly and we will nev­er know what God would have done had we just wait­ed on His tim­ing.

I want to encour­age each of you to tack­le those moun­tains in your life by first ask­ing God what He wants you to do? It is not in the flesh or human pow­er that we over­come. We over­come by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our tes­ti­mony. We over­come by lean­ing not on our own under­stand­ing but on the wis­dom that comes from God. We over­come by trust­ing God to do what only He can do.

Then be sure to do what He tells you to do no mat­ter what oth­ers say or do. It is impor­tant that we stay out of God’s way. Then wait. No mat­ter how much you want to do it your­self. Wait. And come what may, rest in His peace that sur­pass­es all under­stand­ing! Rest in His will for your sit­u­a­tion, not what oth­ers say or do.

God can move that moun­tain in your life!
