I’ve read a story about a man named Eric, he is a world class adventurer. Eric had guided his blind friend to climb Mt. Everest. He mentioned that the trek was sobering and at times intimidating. They even see dead bodies along the way, even falling boulders threatens their lives. He also said “there are a lot of times where you’re forced to depend on God because there’s no other way, trust is an essential character trait for those who traverse the mountain, you need to trust you need to have faith, perseverance, discipline and integrity. You can’t hide when you’re on the mountain. Your weaknesses and strengths are exposed.
Same is through with our lives, oftentimes we encounter mountains such as problems, pains, struggles, persecutions, sickness, we don’t know how to climb or solve these things, we don’t know if we will ever make it through, we encounter problems along the way that discourage and intimidate us, sicknesses that threatens our lives. Eric mentioned that trust is the essential character trait to those who traverse the mountain.
I can say that trust and faith is essential character trait to those who traverse the mountain
“Have£ faith in God,” Jesus answered. 23“I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him.
In this life of uncertainties and no assurance, there is only one person who can be trusted not your business not your insurance, not even your family. Only Him who is unmovable, unshakeable, and firm and that is Jesus, indeed we can’t hide when we are on the mountain. During those hard times that our weaknesses and strength are exposed, we became vulnerable, this is also God’s opportunity to display His glory in our lives.
So whatever mountain you are facing right now, remember that you have a dynamite power, you can blast any mountain that hinders you. Be well.
