“Now therefore give me this mountain, whereof the LORD spake in that day…” Joshua 14:12a (KJV)
“I lift up my eyes to the mountains-where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.” Psalm 121:1-2
“In the last days the mountain of the LORD’s temple will be established as the highest of the mountains, it will be exalted above the hills, and all the nations will stream to it.”
After an AMAZING prayer time this morning I was left with these words that felt in my heart from our Father. He has been speaking to me for months about mountains, and so this was a beautiful time where He was confronting me about being a Mountain Climber, or I guess I should say, my recent challenges with seeing myself as one. I hope you enjoy this peep into all He is showing me. Here is my prayer, may it become yours.
O’ Jesus, may I never forsake this ever climbing, journey with You. You are worth every moment of exhaustion, every scraped knee, every exasperation and feeling of vulnerability and insecurity, as well as every moment of exhilaration, and even moments and feelings that are too BIG and profound to insult by trying to stuff into words. You ARE MY MOUNTAINS, as well as My Victory OVER THEM! I praise You for the View that I get to see of You and myself as we journey together through these mountain terrains. AMEN.
Every person has mountains they are given as a gift from Me.
Mountains represent opportunities to know and experience Me.
Some look at at a mountain and say, “Insurmountable, I will never climb that, so best just to sit here in it’s shadow.”
Some look at a mountain and say, “oh! It’s a prototype! I can build a smaller version of that mountain right here next to it, even using some of the rocks I’ve gathered from it!”
Some begin the climb, but grow weary along the way, and so they break camp before reaching the top and say,”this is as far as I was intended to go.”
And very few reach the peak, and glance out to notice that there are many many mountains to go. And once they do, they set out with a smile.
Give us the mountains, O LORD, and as You do, we are climbing out of us, and deeper into You.
Give us hearts that never stop, O LORD, until we reach another view, and catch another glimpse of who we are in You.
And once we reach earth’s final peak, O LORD, when all here is said and done, may we look back at those mountains behind us as we hear Your words, “well done, my child, well done.”
I love you with ALL of Christ’s love within me,
