God Don’t Move My Mountains

Jesus answered, “Have faith in God. The truth is, you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, mountain, fall into the sea.’ And if you have no doubts in your mind and believe that what you say will happen, then God will do it for you. So I tell you to ask for what you want in prayer. And if you believe that you have received those things, then they will be yours.

— Mark 11:22-24 ERV

Just give me the strength to clinb.  Lord don’t take away my stumbling block, but lead me all around.

That was a song I would hear at every 3 o’clock servuce it seemed.  Even as a child, I was taught the Scripture, and I knew that song didnt not say exactly what the Word said.  It goes along with another famous track.  “I’m climbing up the rough side of the mountain”.  I cant fault what others perceive in the Word of God for themselves, but it goes to show us that we have to look many times to get what the Lord truly has given us.  Power and might through His name.  God gave you power to move the mountain.  Now, whether or not it means a literal mountain or situation that seems impossible,  one could only guess.  I choose the later description, because that is more plausible instead of rearranging God design.   Why dont we realize that we have the power to get through what seems impossible,  and unmovable in our lives. Why is it that we see ourselves as deserving of all the punishment that we can take, instead of fearfully and wonderfully made in the likeness of our Creator? Believe God gave you power.  That is the first step to using what power and gifts or talent the Lord has goven us all.  Stop allowing the devil to continue persuasive tactics on your mind.  The eneny tricked Eve by her Eyes and ears, which made her speak against what she truly believed in her heart.  None of us want to leave paradise for a farm land to plow and till.  Yet, that is what happened to us through sinful disobedience to God the Father. Prayer works out the kinks of doubt.  Fervent heated prayer in a small place alone with our God. In your most secret space, prauly the power of God come down until you feel something happen in your mind, body and soul.  Mountains are huge, and you just cant pick them up and misplace them somewhere you cant find them.  Mountains are obvious to all going by.  Unfortunately they look gokd to climb, but when it is a harsh situation that weighs upon your shoulders, it doesnt feel comfortable.  My Scripture tells me, that Christ sent the Holy Ghost as our comforter.  The Spirit of God can empower you to focus on the power within and not the problem without.

What do we want our Creator to see when He returns for us?  One fighting the good fight, or one cowering behind the bushes full of shame?  It is time to get it all back.  Restore the joy of our salvation.  Not pity my every groan.
