Standing Strong

dec 3“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matthew 5:14 (NIV).

I have lived in Virginia for a while now and boy, do I enjoy this place. I have been learning so many lessons by watching the mountains. These famous Virginia mountains are a spectacular sight that provide beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Whenever I have the time, I pull up in the parking lot behind the Wingate hotel, sit in my car listening to praise and worship and watch the sun set, while speaking to my Father. These moments in my life have been priceless. And all for the free gift of the mountains!!!

I remember driving down Candler’s Mountain Road one time when God revealed another lesson. The fog was so dense that you couldn’t see the city down below, and the only visible parts of the mountains were the tips (or tops). The fog may come and go, and fog may cloud the world around us, but as Christians let’s be like the mountains – standing tall, strong, and unshakeable. The cloud may cover most of the mountains at times, but the tops will still be visible. No fog will outshine the power that is within us, i.e., the power of the Kingdom of God, which, in spite of any weather-like conditions, remains within us – keeping us, strengthening us, and enabling us to remain in Him.

“Dear Heavenly Father, there are so many times when life’s circumstances cloud our vision and keep us from seeing what You have prepared for us. Please help us to remain steadfast in our faith, knowing that the fog will dissipate and the light of Your Son will shine and help us overcome whatever difficulties we are facing.”

For His Glory

  1. Luska,
    What a beautiful devotional. The mountains here in Lynchburg have always been a source of great solace for me. From the times I was coaching on the sidelines at City Stadium as the Sun was setting and I could feel the grace and peace of our great God no matter what the score. I feel the same today as I watch the same sun setting over the same mountains, no matter what I am facing on this earth at this time.
    Thanks and Blessings
