“…you have stayed long enough at this mountain.”
(Deuteronomy 1:6, NIV)
Are You Stuck at the Base of Your Mountain?
Do you wake up each day looking forward to your financial future? Or, have you been caught under the weight of a mountain of financial difficulties which makes it seem as though you’ll spend the rest of your life crawling out from under their crushing weight?
The Bible tells the story of the Israelites on their journey to their promised land. As they traveled the distance to their new home, they experienced some great setbacks, and when faced with their mountain of discouragement they abandoned their dream of a new settlement and decided to quit trying, and to settle where they were. After some time the Lord spoke to them. “You have dwelt long enough on this mountain” he said. The Lord was saying, “Don’t give up. Be determined, and confident.” He was telling the Israelites that even though they had quit trying and did not believe that they could continue on their destined journey, He had not quit on them. His message was “don’t settle for where you are in life, but be determined to move past this mountain and into the greatness I have set on your path.”
Through this message I believe that God is saying the same thing to each of us. You’ve been stuck in your financial rut long enough. God is saying, “Today is not yesterday, but a completely new opportunity to be confident, and to take action and have faith that you WILL move past your mountain”. God will help those who take action to help themselves, and through Him you can push past life’s mountains – if you will take the first step with belief in your heart that you will persevere. Have faith in the Lord.”
Here is a Prayer I Wrote this Sunday Morning for My Family and I
“Heavenly Father, I have suffered setbacks in my life. The mountain I am facing seems insurmountable, and I know that if I don’t conquer it now, it’s towering influence will continue to cast shadows on my life. Help me to know in my heart that you are here with me, ready to conquer this mountain, and that no matter its height this mountain cannot compare to the strength, love and joy that you have placed on my path once I make the decision to push past it. Please guide me on my journey, and lead me to the peace and contentment that I know you have prepared for me. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.”
