Shrink Down Your Mountain

Luke 6:47-48 (AMP)
47 For everyone who comes to Me and listens to My words [in order to heed their teaching] and does them,
I will show you what he is like:
48 He is like a man building a house, who dug and went down deep and laid a foundation upon the rock;
and when a flood arose, the torrent broke against that house and could not shake or move it, because it had been securely built or founded on a rock.

"We don't have a cure for it, you know", said the doctor. Facing down fear is not a new battle for me. Knowing the enemy wants to get rid of me only makes me smile, because I know the God we serve, my friends. He is huge, bigger than any mountain and He loves me and you! Absolutely nothing is a true threat when we know WHO is with us always. During times when the enemy has tried to hurt me, the Lord is a  stanchion. When the enemy attempts to besiege me, the Lord is my High Tower! I call upon the Lord and His Word. Challenges sometimes come through my kids, because I love them so much and want to protect them. But God has them in the palm of His hand too.

When a hostile threat comes against them, I go to the Lord and lead them there as well. His Word is a dominant force against evil. Psalm 138:8 (AMP) The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; I trust His Word and He never fails me.

Having learned to stand on God’s love for me and His Word, I am mostly at peace now. A personal strike by the enemy on my health became not an anxiety, but a time of waiting to see how God wanted me to handle it. That un-curable disease is now gone. He used it to teach and strengthen me.

That enemy wants us to see him as huge and powerful, but put him next to Jesus, and he shrinks down to his true size. Jesus taught me (as seen in past blogs) to keep my eyes on Him, focus on Him never on the ‘mountain’. Don't tell God about your mountain; rather tell your mountain about your God!

Have you encountered “mountains” that threaten your faith?
