TODAY’S SCRIPTURE

“…you have stayed long enough at this mountain”
(Duet 1:6, NIV)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

Let me ask you, do you go out each day knowing that favor is already in your future? Or have you gotten stuck in a rut staring at a mountain of disappointment, setbacks or difficulty?

That’s what happened to the people of Israel. They were headed toward their promised land. They had big goals and big dreams, but along the way they hit some setbacks and had some disappointments. They got so discouraged that they gave up on their dreams and just settled where they were. One day God said to them, “You have dwelt long enough on this mountain.” He was saying, “It’s time to move past this and embrace the blessing in your future.”

I believe God is saying that to each one of us today. You’ve been where you are long enough. God is saying, “This is a new day. Get your fire back. Where you are is not where you’re supposed to stay.” If you’ll be determined to move past your mountain, He will lead you and empower you to live in favor and blessing in every area of your life!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY

Heavenly Father, I give to You every area of my heart. I give You my questions, my disappointments, my doubts and fears. I choose to trade my sorrow for Your joy. I choose to press past my mountains so I can embrace the promises You have in store for me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

  1. This is true to most of us. We are stuck in the same position because we can not think of of alternative ways to proceed. It could be financial, family, personal e.tc. I need to Move That Mountain!!! and see the future. An encouraging word this is. Amen to all

  2. A very encouraging scripture indeed. Often times we find ourselves stuck in one place because of what life has thrown in our way. We immediately deem ourselves to be unworthy to be in God’s presence. We forget that it is not by our works but by God’s Grace that we are even able to stay in God’s presence at anyone time. God’s forgiveness is not restricted to a select few. It is there for all of us whenever we want it. His hands are always wide open welcoming us back to his grace and there is no need for us to justify in our heads why God would want to do such a thing because the simple answer is that he loves us regardless of what we are feeling or going through 🙂
