Sometimes It Takes a Mountain

Is Jesus everything to you? Has it been awhile since you’ve read the Bible or prayed? Maybe you’re facing a trial that has brought you to your knees and you know you need help from above. Do you feel far away from Jesus? Friend, don’t be afraid to call on Him! Whether you’re a new believer or have been a Christ-follower for years, maybe you’ve drifted away from Him and need to find your way back. The truth shall make you free! (see PDF link below)

Jesus wants us to abide in Him. Being spiritually born into His family is just the beginning! Then He wants us to: (blue links have Scripture reference)

Deuteronomy 17:19 - “And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear the LORD his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them:” Joshua 1:8 - “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” 2Timothy 2:15 - “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” James 1:25 - “But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.” John 15:10 - “If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.”

Song Lyrics: “I faced a mountain that I never faced before, that's why I'm calling on the Lord. I know it's been awhile; Lord, please hear my prayer. I need You like I never have before. Your Love is so much stronger than whatever troubles me. Sometimes it takes a mountain to trust You and believe! Far from You, Jesus, I thought I could control whatever life would throw my way; but this, I will admit, has brought me to my knees! I need You, Lord, and I'm not ashamed to say, sometimes it takes a mountain, sometimes a troubled sea; sometimes it takes a desert to get a hold of me! Sometimes it takes a mountain to trust You and believe!”

It may take facing a mountain to get you to trust Him again … or it may take a desert to create a thirst for the Living Water. Whatever it takes, abiding in Him will grow your relationship and knowledge of Him. Jesus loves you and wants to bless you abundantly!
