And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Matthew 17:20
Have you ever heard it said, or even said “The answer was right in front of my eyes”? Well I believe currently I have the answer right in front of me but for some reason, I just can’t see it. We’ve all faced moments like these. You may have all the tools, vision, and drive sometimes you just don’t know where to start.
In moments like these You have two choices.
You can either
- Wallow in self pity or..
- Cast all negative thoughts to JESUS and Truly BELIEVE, meaning Trusting GOD.
Hmm… Although many choose to wallow, it’s a horrible choice, by the way. The problem will not leave it will actually get worse. The best way to move a mountain is to let Jesus do it. Seriously. But what is your part? BEING STILL. Not physically, well it does depend on the circumstances, it’s more like Spiritually and Mentally. You know, Still that mind of yours, and trust that GOD knows what he’s doing.
There’s always going to be something that CAN bother or upset you. Choose wisely.
I’ve noticed MANY of Us, many People, have truly been fooled by the World. Many believe that they have a right to be happy without any work. They have a right to have what they want because….it will make them…HAPPY.
The truth is your emotional state is actually your responsibility and your own doing. Yup I said it! It’s your Mountain. And the more you linger on the negative thoughts, the more you will go into that state of negativity. PAY ATTENTION to what you are thinking. WAKE UP, to what’s inside your dome. WAKE UP. Stop blaming your circumstances, people and even your past! What you DO at this moment is what counts. And that’s how the kit-kat brakes.
At Times we all have the Answers right in front of us but we allow distractions to over whelm us. Such as, Exhibit A…The Mountain.
We can either look at the obstacles surrounding the Mountain that is in front of our path. Its’ height, the equipment needed, the long stretch, how hard it’s going to be. Or we can have FAITH! And watch How GOD Parts it. AMEN! Forget about Time constraints, forget about how or when YOU want something done and submit yourself to GOD, His timing, His Grace.
One thing that may hinder you is, the mountain looks mighty sturdy. It looks real. It looks like it was created for that particular spot and it’s there to stay. But aren’t you more than birds of the air? (They can fly around mountains mind you)
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Matthew 6:26
So this POST is for YOU, YEA YOU!
I’m sorry I know I can be a little Harsh at times but you need to Cheer up Butter cup. You want that gorgeous body? Well just sitting on the couch is not going to do you any favors. You want to be in a relationship? Well not knowing what love is (GOD IS LOVE, FYI) isn’t going to get the best catch. YOU make who YOU were born to be. We weren’t meant to linger in a negative state, we were meant to SOAR on wings Like EAGLES!
But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
Put the cookie down, step away from that self help book (unless it’s a Christian one) and Pick up that BIBLE! CALL on JESUS and DO what you KNOW in your HEART is the RIGHT thing to DO! He Will Help you Every Step of the way. He will Help you Move that Mountain. You Just gotta Believe.
I truly believe that some people are afraid of accepting the responsibility that comes with Living. Because it means they gotta work For it…They gotta put themselves out there. Well Butter Cup, PUSH HARDER. BE BRAVER. THINK POSITIVE!
Don’t be afraid to LET GO of your Life and Give it to JESUS! YEA
If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, you will save it. Mark 8:35
YOU’RE AMAZING, YOU’RE WORTH IT, GOD LOVES YOU NO MATTER WHAT!
Until Next Time Ciao!
