Word Filled Wednesday-God is my refuge and strength

 

Isabela

 

Typhoon Megi just recently ravaged the northern part of the Philippines, there were at least 13 people died, with an estimated of more than US$ 22M in losses from damaged crop and property. My province bore the brunt of the typhoon’s destruction.  Houses of my family and relatives were thrown away destroyed, until now i couldn’t contact my mother. May you include Philippines especially the victims of the typhoon in your prayers.

God is our refuge and strength, a very resent help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change And though, the mountains slip into the heart of the sea ; Though its waters roar and foam, Though the mountains quake at its swelling pride. Selah. Psalms 46:1-3

ARE YOU FACING YOUR MOUNTAIN RIGHT NOW?

yangshouI’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 threaten 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, you need to persevere and you need to have 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 threaten 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 said in Mark 11:23  “Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into thesea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted 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 in the mountain. During those hard times that our weaknesses and strength are exposed, we became vulnerable and this is also God’s opportunity to display His glory in our lives. Place your faith in the One who can make you climb and overcome your mountain, put your faith in Jesus alone.

So whatever mountain you are facing right now, He has given you a dynamite power, you can blast any mountain that hinders you. Be well.
