Can This Mountain Be Moved?

The following is a post by my good friend, Jasper Nhira

————-

If you want something to happen get up and do it and quit acting like your waiting on God. I recently experienced this in my own life with my weight. For years I wanted to lose some weight and always prayed for good health but my prayers were not losing my weight for me.

It took me going to the gym almost everyday for the past 4 months to get results (I lost 30 pounds). Was God not answering my prayer to loss weight? No, There are certain things that God has given us the power to control that He will not move on until WE get up and ACT.

Mark 11:23 “For truly I say to you, That whoever shall say to this mountain, Be you removed, and be you cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he said shall come to pass; he shall have whatever he said.”

What the verse neglects to mention is that your mountain, struggle, addiction, hurt, pain, disappointment, lack of direction, disappointment, loneliness, discouragement, etc. won’t be moved all at once. Sometime it takes hundreds, thousands, millions of shovels full of dirt to finally level that mountain that stands in your way. Sometimes it will take your entire life to completely move the mountain. All you have to do it make sure that you concentrate on the next shovel full of dirt and you will eventually move that mountain.

The misconception is that people of God should not face the same hurts and pain that those in the world face, Wrong. The rain falls on both the just and the unjust equally, meaning bad things happens to all of us.

Sometimes I get mad at God because I depend on Him to the point that I don’t act. He becomes my crutch instead of my constant help in time of need. Guess what? God wasn’t created for us, NO, We were created for Him, by Him. Meaning His sole purpose is not to make our lives better and easier.

Example: Jesus Christ – Left Perfect Heaven to come down to Imperfect Earth. Was tempted by Satan. Lost friends, Was Betrayed. Was Let down, denied, rejected, beaten, spat on, wiped, crucified and all sin put on His back.

If this was God’s Only begotten Son and He went through all of that in obedience to His father what makes you think that you should skate throughout life without any battle scars? God is not here so that “money can come to you,” or for you to get more stuff, newer car, bigger house, nicer clothes, better retirement plan, Sorry.

The Only Thing God Has Called Us to Be Rich In Is LOVE, and Nothing Else. Stop asking Him for Stuff rather ask for a larger capacity to love and help those in need.
