Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. -Mark 11:23 (NIV)
Never stop praying. -1 Thessalonians 5:17 (NLT)
See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. -Isaiah 43:19 (NIV)
Through every day, and every moment of every day, spiritual warfare is being waged worldwide, and even in our hearts. Doubt is like a constant rain that searches for holes in the roof of your faith, to start leaking into your insides.
And as we trudge through the valleys, the mountains stand between us and where God intends for us to be. What now?
With God, we know that those mountains are there for a reason.
If a mountain stands between us and God, like a mountain of sin, then He can help us make that mountain vanish through His infinite grace!
If a mountain is one that we cannot circumnavigate, then God needs us to scale it, and we will learn and grow as we become stronger along the climb…to the mountaintop He has waiting for us.
If a mountain is impassable, then we do what unbelievers can’t: we put our faith in God, knowing He will make a way for us where there seems to be no way. He’s good at that. 🙂
All the while, we pray and praise Him. And all the while, the world watches as we traverse the impassable and impossible. How? Because all things are possible to those who believe. Do you believe?
