ASK GOD FOR A MOUNTAIN (2)
God has a mountain with your name on it.
Do you know why?
Because you only flourish as you face challenges!
Joshua and Caleb both brought back a good report, yet only Joshua was promoted to leadership when Moses departed. Caleb could have withdrawn and sulked, but instead he invested himself in the lives of the people around him.
As an older man whose generation was dying off, he had to develop a whole new circle of friends and he did it. He became a mentor, guide, and cheerleader for an entirely new generation. He did it with such gusto that they all wanted the eighty-five-year-old Caleb to lead them when they went up to the hill country.
Challenges undertaken for the greater good bind us to people, whereas the pursuit of comfort leads to isolation; isolation is terminal. Some of you might say, ‘It’s too late for me to make a difference.’ God doesn’t think so. ‘Even to your old age…I will carry you; I will sustain you…’ (Isaiah 46:4 NIV).
So start making plans now.
Dare to dream!
Life isn’t about comfort, it’s about saying, ‘God, give me another mountain.’ Somebody said that when everything’s coming your way—you’re on the wrong side of the road.
Living the adventure God planned for you isn’t just another pursuit; it’s the reason you were born!
How will you recognize your mountain?
There’s no precise formula and like every other area of growth in your life, your mountain won’t look exactly like anyone else’s. But you’ll recognize it, because it lies at the intersection of your greatest strengths and your greatest passions.
‘…I am as strong this day as on the day that Moses sent me…’ Joshua 14:11 NKJV

All things are possible for one who believes!
This kind cannot be driven out by anything but prayer!
Have faith in God!
Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, “be taken up & thrown into the sea,” & does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him!
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, & it will be yours!
Watch & pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. and again he went away & prayed, saying the same words!
Prayer is the most powerful weapon we have! Jesus used prayer to accomplish the father’s work! We must not sleep but watch & pray! This is your hour, do not sleep! Seek Him today! never delay!
