“Mountains can be beautiful to look at when you are living in a calm and peaceful valley. However, they may not look as attractive if I ask you to climb one. Some embrace mountains enthusiastically as an adventure, others see them as obstacles. I allow certain mountains to be obstacles in your life because there are things I want you to teach you. This is not to harm you, it is to help you.
I want you to learn to trust me fully, and to believe that together you and I can do whatever it is I am calling you to do. You are not alone once you have invited me into your life. I have promised to be with those who love me, and I will help you do what I ask of you. I will help you to conquer your fears. Because of my great love, you will not fail.
The mountain you face is for a season and you must trust my reason for allowing it. It is more important that you focus on the one who is leading you than on the mountain itself.
My plans are always going to be for your best and I will lead you in the right direction. Trust me as you step out on faith to climb the mountain in front of you. I am calling you to go with me on this journey. Are you ready? We can begin when you say yes.”
- In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him. Psalm 95:4
- Who may ascend the mountain of he Lord? Who may stand in his holy place? The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god. They will receive a blessing from the Lord and vindication from God their Savior. Psalm 24: 3-5
- The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you or forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Deuteronomy 31:8
