The mountains melt like wax at the presence of the Lord

Psalm 97:5


This is such a great thought to start your week & your day. The idea of mountains in this verse is an image of the challenges that we have to face in life. They can tower over us and dominate the landscape of our lives. Often they are all that we can see and it can be hard to see them move. Do you have things like that in your life? Here is the great thought though - In the presence of God, no matter what we are facing comes under the name & authority of Jesus.  How we live in the peace of that is to allow the Holy Spirit to take that truth and flood our hearts & minds with it.

Take time today to create space for the Holy Spirit to flood your life with His love & truth. The moment that you start to be aware of the presence of God in your life and cultivate that then all the biggest challenges in your life begin to waste away. The word of God says that the presence of God goes before us to prepare the way for blessing & wholeness.

Don't let mountains dominate you today. Take as much time as you can to settle yourself in God's presence. Your mind, heart and soul will flood with peace.

In the presence of God though, mountains melt away like wax. I love that image. When we are in the presence of God, on whatever day of the week, mindful of HIs goodness, HIs love , HIs grace and promises over us then our mountains melt like wax. It does not say we need a 10 point strategy, to be more clever or get lucky. Simply we position our hearts and minds to be focused first on Jesus.

So flipping simple. 

What are your mountains right now? Internal? External? Practise the presence of God,  heart and mind set on Him and His opinion, view, belief about you before anything else. I'm going to do that before I let another day go past worrying or replaying the same old scenes in my head and heart. I'll do that before I speak to my  circle about the issues. In Gods presence I am changed. Seems also that the mountains will melt like wax.....
