“You Gave Me A Mountain This Time

Elvis used to have a song that went;
“Born in the heat of the desert.
My Mother died giving me life.
Deprived of the love of a father,
Blamed for the loss of his wife.
You know Lord I’ve been in a prison.
For something that I’ve never done.
It’s been one hill after another,
I’ve climbed them all one by one.”
Do you have a problem that appears to be a mountain and you are thinking, “I don’t if even God come help me?” Well, God can. There is nothing too great for our Lord. Let me give you some Old Testament history to explain.
In 587 B.C. the Babylonians conquered the southern kingdom of Judah and took the people captive. Israel was captive in Babylonian for years.
In 537 B.C., God moved in the heart of Cyrus, king of Persia to allow Israel to return home. Let’s stop here because we need to understand the significance of this.
Cyrus was a pagan. As in, he didn’t believe in God.
I repeat; he was a PAGAN.
Cyrus couldn’t care less about Israel.
But God moved in the heart of a pagan king and Cyrus issued a decree to let Israel return home. Again… a pagan king let Israel return home.
This story is a great reminder that nothing is too great for God. So, what problem are you facing? I’m not saying it’s going to go away over night. I’m not saying you are going to walk to your mailbox and find a check for a nice of money. But I am saying that God is able. This story proves that.
What problem are you facing? God can help. I don’t know how it will turn out. But I know God is able. If God could cause a pagan king to issue a law that all the Israelites could go home, God can handle our problems.
So what are you facing? What problem or challenge or you dealing with?
Is it a marital problem? Financial? Work-related? Emotional? God can help you. Again, I’m not saying everything is going to get better over night. I’m not saying you may not face some consequences if you made a mistake. I am saying God will help you. If you are going to face some consequences, God will give us strength.
The chorus of the song by Elvis goes;
“You gave me a mountain this time,
A mountain that i may never climb.
It isn’t, Lord a hill any longer.
You gave me a mountain this time.”
God helps us climb our mountains. He will help you today if you ask Him.
