Overcoming the Mountain

Today’s post is not deep theology. It is a simple reminder of the strength we can find when we are in the word of God.

Sometimes the mountain in front of us can feel overwhelming. With God we can find the strength to keep moving forward. If you find yourself with what feels like an impossible mountain to overcome, hold on to the truth of the word of God and keep pressing forward.  Psalm 18 is one of my favorite Psalms and it is the perfect scripture to turn to when you need strength to scale what is in front of you. 

“It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights. He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze. You make your saving help my shield, and your right hand sustains me; your help has made me great. You provide a broad path for my feet, so that my ankles do not give way”. Psalm 18:32-34
 
Have faith and trust God to give you the strength you need to get to the next mountain top. Lastly, don’t forget the power of prayer and the power in praying scripture.  If there is a mountain in front of you, this prayer is for you and it is taken from Psalm 18.  
 
Abba Father, Today I pray that you give my brother/sister strength and keep his/her way secure. Make his/her feet like a deer so that he/she can stand on new heights. Lord be his/her shield and may your right hand sustain him/her. Father, provide him/her with a broad path so that his/her ankles do not give way as he/she overcomes this mountain with you by his/her side.  In Jesus’s name, Amen.  
 
Today I hope you take a moment to read all of Psalms 18 and let the truth of God’s word fill you with strength.  Here is the link to Psalm 18 but I hope you choose to open your bible instead of reading it online. There is something so special about the feel of the Bible in your hands. 
Keep pressing forward and have a Simply Blessed day.
