Forgive me, Jesus I thought I could control Whatever life would throw my way But this I will admit Has brought me to my knees, I need you Lord and I’m not ashamed to say Sometimes it takes a mountain Sometimes a troubled sea Sometimes it takes a desert To get a hold of me Your Love is so much stronger Then climbing-mountainswhatever troubles me Sometimes it takes a mountain To trust you and believe. (Gaither Vocal Band – Sometimes It Takes a Mountain)

Mountains, the subject is infinite when we think of one’s problems within the interaction with our day to day life and how we as Christians relate or handle each situation and circumstances that arises in our life. When characterizing our journey it is probably safe to say that our Faith has been stretched too an unbearable limit.

in addition, If our destination is the promise land, than our personal story never ends. So through our faith we hold on some how because we understand “with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day. The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.

In 1Samuel 17:45 (KJV) David has a pretty high mountain to climb when he goes up against Goliath “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in theDavidGoliath-235x300 name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hands, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head.

This very day I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds and the wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in IsraelMy friends we must know our God and what He is capable of doing for His faithful children.

The size of the mountain did not matter to David because he knew the God he served “is exalted over all the nations, His glory above the heavens. Who is like the Lord our God, The One who sits enthroned on high, who stoops down to look on the heavens and the earth”? Psalm 113:4-8 (NIV) Psalm 55:22 (KJV) also tells us to “Cast our cares or Mountains on the Lord and he will sustain us; he will never let the righteous be shaken.”

My friends what about your mountains and your trials, How far must your Faith be stretched before you realize that our God is an infinite God who has no limits. He tells us in Jeremiah 23:23-24 (KJV)Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the lord. do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the lord.

But today maybe you can not reach the top of your mountain because “your iniquities have separated you from your God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He images33will not hear” Isaiah 59:2 (kJV) But if your desire is life eternal, then you must have the character of Christ and allow Him through His Word and Spirit to take full control of your life.

Jesus Christ on Calvary, when taken upon Himself, the full penalty of our sins. Oh what a mountain He had to climb, just that we would know “that with men [and woman trying to get over any mountain] it is impossible; but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26 (KJV) and also, He let’s us know “to not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Is. 41:10 (NIV)


So friends stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
