Gusts Beneath Your Feet...Climbing the Mountain
Sometimes we have imbalance and we don't realize it because we're so used to things being the way it is...We've lived with imbalance for so long that we don't know what it is like to be any other way, and we don't recognize that in us. So what do we do then?
Well, here are some ways to identify imbalance in your life...
Today, I want you to look into the mirror and know that the following is true: "You are strong. When the world overtakes you, I know that you are more powerful than it through God because He willed you to be stronger than this. You can move mountains because He will move them with you. But if the mountain doesn't move, and I promise this will happen, you must climb it and stand on its peak, looking forward and know that this mountain is under your feet, as it should be... It will be UNDER your feet.
The enemy will be under your feet. Isaiah 40:31 says, "...but they that wait for Jehovah shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk, and not faint." How can you fear now? You will fly or you will run and/or walk up that mountain when you cannot move it...This is a promise from God. Isn't that awesome?
Today, just keep thinking about your strength. Let your mind rest with God and don't let it wander off into the dry desert to find Satan and his temptations there. He is going to whisper thoughts into your mind...take them into captivity and release them, banishing them and allowing God's mercy to fall on to you.
Today, I write this with a heavy heart because I struggle with mental clarity myself. I let my stagecoach become overcrowded with the wrong passengers...there's only room enough for one spirit, and that's the Spirit of my God! I let the driver get off the path...but no more! He will be fired if he doesn't straighten up! (ha ha ha, I am kidding on this because you cannot "fire" your mind, but you can definitely can go through training to instill peace AND stability in it). Romans 4:20 says, "Abraham never wavered in believing God's promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God." You, too should have faith, because I have to!
