Winsome Wednesday - A visiting Mountain!

This week a mountain is being thrust in our path.  Its a big ugly mountain of jealousy and hatred.  BUT, in faith, I pray this mountain be moved in JESUS name.


How can I trust for this mountain to move?
Ps 20 v 7:  Some trust in and boast of chariots and some of horses, but we will trust in and boast of the name of the Lord our God.

I am trusting God to remove this mountain out of our path, out of our lives and I know that my faith is well placed.  I won't trust in worldly solutions, they never satisfy.  Only GOD....

What are your mountains today?  Trust God to move them!

Now, having said that I got a picture in my head of someone moving a home from point A to point B.  At point A, the home is being raised off its foundations, slowly moved to the moving trucks, carefully manoeuvred, and slowly the move begins.  At point B, there is an empty plot, a prepared piece of ground, but... nothing going on.  People look and see, there is nothing.  They do not know that at point A everything is happening, everything is in action.  Its only much later, at point B where suddenly, a home arrives, activity begins in earnest.

The point to that little picture is this:  It may not look like your mountain is being moved, it may not look like God is doing anything.  All the evidence suggests - nothing is going on!  But.... fear not!  God is active and moving on your behalf and soon, you will see the result of that.  Activity, activity.  Your mountain, my mountain, will be moved.  Your faith is secure if your faith is in Christ.



God bless
Tracy

  8. Praying that God moves that mountain soon dear Tracy! I am reminded of Matthew 17:20-21: “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, move from here to there, and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

    I know your genuine faith will allow you to move forward in God's strength, putting your trust and faith in Him to remove your mountain, and live in victory!

    Blessings and prayers sweet friend,
    Denise

  9. Tracy:

    Several years ago, my husband and I were facing a mountain. The scripture about having faith the size of a mustard seed and moving mountains kept coming to my mind. One day, I felt the Lord speak to me and say, "It may be a mountain for you, but for me it is but a grain of sand".

    God can (and does) move mountains. Praying for you.

    Blessings,
    Joan

  14. God is faithful! Your trust is well placed.

    Your analogy brought to mind the year my family did move a house from a lot where an expressway was being built. As a family we reclaimed the brick and hauled it from the original site to the new site. The brick was replaced and we moved in to a new neighborhood (that had been a bit shocked to see a house moving down their street).

    Praying that you will be encouraged.

  18. So much of God's work is done behind the scenes -- if we lack faith, we get frustrated when we don't see the mountain moving! But in His perfect timing, He will remove the obstacles as needed for us to accomplish His perfect will.
    Thanks as always for the great post and for hosting the linkup, and God bless!

  19. We often forget that God is moving, since we can't see Him doing so. But to keep that faith and trust in His awesome timing, you won't be let down if you do. Praying those mountains move out of your way...soon!

  21. Thanks for the reminder! Can't wait to hear the end of the mountain story. I've got a few mountains that are in the process of being moved, too. At least, I'm choosing to believe they are!

  22. "Say to the mountain move, be comsummed with fire..." Excellent post and singing praises for those mountains to move!

  23. When you have stirred up our old enemy he does deposit "mountains" in our path. The same day that my daughter and I posted our stories about abuse - child and on women, all hell broke loose. Call it mountains being dumped. I began to take authority over harsh words and claimed peace, and she began to pull down strong holds. Neither she or I gave each other details on our mountains, but why bother, we knew where they came from. God is the one who can remove the mountain - or blast it away. Our part is to speak to the mountain and tell it that it is unwanted and command it to Go in Jesus name. What ever you are doing Tracy - keep it up and may you be surrounded with the garments of peace and praise.

  25. Your faith is secure if your faith is in Christ.... AMEN! AMEN!

    Few months ago, God had revealed these sins to me. I thought I didn't have those, I'm thanking Him for He dealt these mountains and praising Him for giving me the grace to overcome them, it's an everyday choice.

  26. Oh Tracy,
    My mountain is my two sons rejection of God and their bad decisions. It feels so hard to keep climbing but I have to keep trusting.

  27. Yes, Tracy! God moves mountains every day! He has moved many mountains out of my life. We are so blessed to have a God who can do anything, for NOTHING is impossible for Him!

  30. Tracy~ Thank you for sharing this. This was so encouraging to me. Sometimes it gets hard when we can not see what is going on. But, I need to remember and have faith that God is indeed working!

  31. Thank you God that you are at work even when I can't see it. Increase my faith... less of me and more of you Jesus! Great post Tracy, blessings!

  32. Hi, Tracy. Sorry it took me so long to getting around to reading and responding to your post. I appreciate what you wrote about. It's so appropriate for what our family is currently facing. It's interesting that you used the image of moving a house, because our 'mountain' is getting our house officially sold so we can move to a new house. I also have been singing a song over and over in my head, which I have posted on my blog...it speaks of moving mountains....I linked my post on your link-up, but here is the link, too.
