What are the mountains in your life?
What do you feel you have to overcome?
What weighs you down and burdens you?
What does a person do with a mountain?
I would gather from various TV programs and T-shirts dedicated to mountaineering, one would climb the mountain. One would train, get fit, get the right clothing and gear, practice on smaller slopes
And then -
Go tackle the chosen mountain!
Climb it - summit it - conquer it!
Then, um, walk back down?
My point is -
- God has given us the right gear for mountain climbing - His word.
- He has given us the right clothing - His armour for spiritual warfare along the way and the cloak of righteousness for favour
- He trains us - with smaller slopes, gentler mountains (smaller problems to overcome)
- And then He says - go for it - I am with you to guide you - go conquer that mountain.
So, off you go, climb your mountain - summit it - conquer it, place a flag on top that says "To God be the glory - He has given me the victory!"
And then, you walk back down.
At the end of the expedition you receive a T-shirt that says "Overcomer through Christ". Because of your victory, because of your Saviour, because of His supply and guidance - you will be able to tackle the next mountain!
Rom 8 v 37: Yet in all things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
