    One of them, a lawyer, asked him a question, testing him. 'Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?' Jesus said to him, 'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. A second likewise is...

Circling The Mountain

  • Then we turned, and took our journey into the wilderness by the way to the Red Sea, as Yahweh spoke to me; and we encircled Mount Seir many days. Yahweh spoke to me, saying, 'You have encircled this mountain long enough. Turn northward.' Deuteronomy 2:1-3 WEB

    The Israelites wandered forty years in the wilderness while God worked out some differences with them. Twice when they were circling a mountain, there came a point when it was time for them to move on.

    God told them in Deuteronomy 1:6, 'You have lived long enough at this mountain. Turn and take your journey.' Again in Deuteronomy 2:1, 'You have encircled this mountain long enough. Turn northward.'

    Many times we will huddle around a mountain in our life, circling it. We cannot move on because of __________. It affects everything that we do and we cry out for God to help, but you cannot steer a parked car. It needs to be moving.

    We meet people all the time that are trapped in a bad situation because they cannot let go of something. They are like a fish that is holding on to the hook and will not let it go. Eventually there comes a time when they get tired of circling that same mountain again and again while just growing older, and they make the change. It is just such a struggle to let it go.

    If you want to see something different in your life, do something different. If you have been trying to make a peach cobbler for years, but it always comes out as apple, it is time to try a new recipe. It may be time to stop circling this mountain.

    Give God something to work with today. Leave the mountain behind you and do what you have been putting off. Turn and take your journey.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please give me a clear vision on how to change my life for the better. Help me overcome the obstacles that are holding me back. Set me free from this endless loop and help me break out, and break through, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Dear Father in Heaven, thank you for giving me that push I need whenever I get stuck. Teach me Father to "let it go" and to know that all things in the end work out for the "greater good".  I know that I often get stuck and wonder why, but you are ALWAYS there to guide me when I finally "Let It Go".  Amen!!
