Sometimes we think that the mountain that stands in front of us is unsurpassable. But perhaps the mountain is there in the first place to raise our faith to another level. When we get to desperate situations, we tend to work our hands into the dirt and lose faith in ourselves. When we get to the bottom of the pit that we dug with our own hands and feel exhaustion from the work that we put into trying to get out, we cry out to God. By crying out to God, we begin to relinquish control on the situation and then God can begin the good work in us. After all, it is not about the mountains that we face, it is our perspective that creates the mountain itself.
You ever wonder why God put so many people on the Earth that have interwoven connections? It is because those people were made to be the cloud of witnesses to help you through the tough times to renew your mind. (Hebrews 12:1) You are renewing your perspective and it takes others to truly see what God is doing. If we can take the focus off of the mountain and fix our eyes on Jesus, who is the author and perfecter of our faith, the mountain will begin to move. (Hebrews 12:2) It does not move per say, but it gets smaller and smaller in the sight of God’s perfect plan and provision. God does not punish us and He is not an unjust God, but He loves us with an everlasting love. (Jeremiah 31:3) If we can shift our focus on what God is trying to do, we can understand that the mountain was not placed in our path to hinder us from getting to God, but so that we can gain a closer relationship with Him.
