GOD-TRACKING IS MOVING MOUNTAINS!
“So, trust in your Lord without depending on your own perceptions of the size of the boulder in your field. It’s definitely not as big as you thought.”
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
An old farmer had ploughed around a large rock in one of his fields for many years. He had broken several ploughshares on it. One autumn he sat down on the rock before attempting to plough the field again, remembering all the trouble that it had caused him. “I’m tired of battling with you,” he mused to the old boulder. “You’ve caused me too much trouble for too long.” He rose mumbling and walked to the shed at the edge of his field. Returning with a crowbar he dug it under the rock. To his amazement he discovered that it was only about six inches deep and he could easily remove it from his field.
Sometimes, when facing problems in life, we make mountains out of mole hills, don’t we? We look at our difficulties from a distance, grumbling that there’s a boulder in our field we can’t move. But we serve a mighty God! He deeply loves us and desires to deliver us from all our dreads. Jesus said, “Which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? How much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!” In fact, Jesus taught us that if we had faith the size of a mere mustard seed, we could move mountains.
The Lord has a great future in store for you. He knows the plans he has for you; plans filled with hope and abundance. Put your confidence in his plans. Rest in his provision, healing, strength and grace (remember, grace is God’s doing!). When the heat is turned up quote God’s Word: “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.” So, trust wholeheartedly in your Lord without depending on your own perceptions of the size of the boulder in your field. It’s definitely not as big as you thought.
God-tracking is moving mountains!
DON’T GIVE UP, LOOK UP & PRAY
I will not fear when the heat is turned up and by the promise of your Word, I command this mountain to be removed!
“O Lord, this problem in my life looks like a mountain, from where I stand. But I know you are high and above all the ways of man. Therefore, you are greater than any obstacle I could ever face. I look to you, O Lord, to meet my needs and direct my paths. Thank you that you have a good plan for my life; a plan of hope and abundance. I put my trust in you. Lord, you are my trust! I will not fear when the heat is turned up and, by the authority of your Word, I command this mountain to be removed! In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
