He is not going to move the mountain, if it will get in the way of something he has planned for the future.
Let’s face it, we have such a hard time with patience, we try to move that mountain on our own. We push and shove and wonder why our backs hurt, we complain about the pain. ..why is this so hard?
“Why won’t this mountain move?” “I’m waiting and waiting, “did I mention I’m getting tired of waiting?”
Does this sound like anything you’ve said before? Maybe you are saying it right now! Honestly, we have no idea what that mountain is keeping us from. Do we ever consider what is on the other side? What is it protecting us from? Maybe whatever is on the other side of the mountain is just not ready yet. The path is still getting cleared.
We have no idea what will happen within this waiting time, my guess is with God..big things, growth, opportunity, possibly a chance for redirection???
Sometimes the only thing needed in times like this is to surrender. I know it sounds weak, it sounds like giving up, as if you are doing nothing at all. Think of it as this, it’s letting go of a tug of war that you were never meant to enter. So many of us are still trying to face our struggles on our own. When All we see is the problem that’s IN THE WAY, we are missing out on Important keys to his process…. His Way.
There is still much so do within a waiting time. Quit looking at the mountain and look around. God may be using this mountain to use you, in someone else’s mountain moment.
Let’s ask ourselves this, do I believe God loves me? Do I believe God can move the mountains within my life? If so, then maybe we just need to Trust that! Trust that if this mountain isn’t budging it’s for a darn good reason! Consider this, Just maybe it’s not the mountain that God is planning on moving? Maybe He’s going to do a move within you.
Don’t be so quick to think God is not working fast enough. Use this time to talk with Him, to receive His peace. What happens when one side of the tug of war let’s go? The other side falls back. Think about that release, every time you are tempted to take this burden back into your own hands.
My God is Capable, My God is Powerful, My God is Loving, My God is All Knowing!
My God has Got This! My God has Me!
I pray that today whatever the struggle is, however big or small, I pray that you let it go. Quit pushing, quit pulling. I pray that You receive God’s peace and comfort. Remember He loves you. He cares for you and your loved ones. I pray that when you lift your eyes to the mountain, you remember where your help comes from.
I pray that you remember how precious His timing is and that it IS Perfect.
In The Name of JESUS I Pray… Amen and Amen.
