Be reminded that faith is an essential gift from God. Faith is needed to move that big mountain in your life that keeps lingering around. A mountain that’s blocking the sunshine of happiness. A mountain that’s too big and too difficult to climb. A barrier that keeps you from moving forward. An insurmountable obstacle that has intimidated your emotions with unbelief. Is there anything too hard for God?
There comes a time in life when we will be tested. When we are at the top of the mountain, praising the Lord comes easy. But in the valley of the mountain of despair, faith is tested. God calls us to live by faith, not by fear. Never ignore or discredit the word of the Lord. Whether you are on the top of the mountain or in the valley, God is always there. He can take a hopeless situation and turn it around.
Get ready for a valley experience with God! Faith reminds us that God, who guides, protects, and directs us, will meet us, even in the valley. God has proven His love to us over, and over again. All things work together for the good of those who love Him. Strong faith enables us to speak to the mountain! Because He cares, we can live courageously. What pleases God the most is when we live a persistent life of simple obedience to His word. Nothing is impossible with God!
