Look to the Mountaintop
Whatever life’s challenges you may face, remember always to look to the mountaintop, for in so doing you look to greatness. Remember this, and let no problem, no matter how great it may seem, discourage you, nor let anything less than the mountaintop distract you. This is the one thought I want to leave with you. – Alfonzo Ortiz, b. 1939
Wow! Now that is amazing. I’m not sure if Mr. Ortiz was referring to God when he mentioned the mountaintop, but I sure was when I read it. It’s beautiful! In Hebrews 12:2, we are told to ”...fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith...”. Well to me that mountaintop represents Jesus. He truly is the author and perfecter of our faith, he truly is GREAT. We should try not to let the little problems or even the BIG problems discourage us, because if we fix our eyes on Jesus, obey, follow and trust in Him, we will never be put to shame (Psalm 25:3). He is more than willing to help us through those tough situations we all face in our lives on a daily basis.
The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.
Lord we thank you for your mercy and love. We thank you heavenly father for hearing our cries and delivering us from our troubles. Lord help us to realise that we shouldn’t let the little or big things in our lives hinder or distract us but that we should fix our eyes on Jesus and trust in Him. Lord Bless us throughout this year and help us to become more and more like your son Jesus. AMEN.
Peace be with you all.
