I love nature, the smell, freedom, and sense of being disconnected from the technological world, which is why I spend time hiking throughout the state when I can, of course. I love to admire the mountains when I am outdoors; there is something special about them. I think about how long the mountain has been standing there, firm, strong, and immovable for years on end.
The verse we read above is reminding us as Jesus’ followers that we ought to stand firm, letting nothing move us, given fully to the work of the Lord. We are to be like mountains unshakable, planted, and steady, knowing that God is greater and that he is our foundation. With God on our side, we will not, or cannot be shaken. Take heart today; you’re like a mountain when God is within you and on your side.
PRAYER: Father, continue to keep us steady and unmoved by all adversity in our lives, and help us to continue in the work of the Lord, fully given to you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
