You know what I’m talking about.
When we fail, we can either listen to Satan, or we can listen to God. Satan whispers, “You’ll never get this right. Why bother?” God says, “You’ll do better next time, My child. Don’t give up. I am with you.”
Who would you rather listen to? After much experience listening to Satan’s “helpful” advice, I’ve learned that it’s better to listen to the One Who knows you best.
This wild adventure called life is full of bumps in the road…and sometimes we have to ride right over them.
But your life isn’t over when you hit a bump or two. There are better days ahead. Today may seem cloudy, but it all depends on how you look at it.
You can make a choice not to make it bigger than it is. You can choose to see it as part of God’s plan. You can’t have a full understanding of everything that happens to you, but you can choose to trust the One Who does.
Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people both now and forevermore (Psalm 125:1-2, NIV).
We can be mountains. We can stand tall and laugh at the little mole-hills because they ain’t getting to us. We have a God Who is greater than every mole-hill and every mountain.
Our God gives us the grace to be mountains every day. He gives us opportunities to rely on Him…or to worry.
When something goes wrong, we can mope; or we can marvel. We can pout; or we can progress. We can let it grow out of proportion, or we can let it go and move one.
We belong to the One Who created the mountains. He sees higher than we ever will.
Trust the One Who tells you that you are like Mount Zion. He is with you.
Don’t let the little things become worse than they are. Don’t determine that you weren’t meant to be a chef because you burned your friend’s birthday cake. Let God determine where you belong.
We are surrounded by Him forever. We can stand tall in Christ.
Just like mountains.
