The best of Mountains Move
This is the one of those rare moments where everyone in my family is gathered in one place. It’s been two years sense we could all get away together, blame it on a family of 13, but this weekend we are all together. I am in heaven.
This morning we are sitting around listening to Kristian’s Cd (he’s not here yet) and doing our quiet times. The words are hitting me like a gust of mountain wind. I love my brother’s new Cd but not just because he is my brother. The words are so rich and they are perfect praise for a morning so wonderful as this. There are a few highlights I wanted to outline for you. If you don’t have it yet please proceed to Itunes or amazon and buy it NOW, no really go away.
1. From song #9 (my favorite)
“I am yours and you are mine forever. Never taken from your side. My father. I will be with you forever. Things that were once wild alarms,cannot now disturb my rest”. Not only are those amazing words they are written from truth. God has promised you a place beside him. We can rest, the bible tells us God has given us rest on “every side” which I believe means he can handle our problems and we can rest.
1 kings 5:4 says 4 But now the LORD my God has given me rest on every side, and there is no adversary or disaster.
2. From song #4 “All things are possible its true that you are unstoppable. Your light will never fade, your promises remain unchanged. Oh great God there is power in your name. Oh great God we are rising up to say we believe!” I know we all know the verse all things are possible through Christ who strengthens me but do we really believe that. Are we living like that? It is true that God’s promises remains unchanged and we can live a life that reflects that. What if we all lived like God was stronger than us? I believe the stress levels might sink just a little, but that’s just my guess.
10Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice!
11A)”>(A) Seek the LORD and his strength;
seek his presence continually!
12B)”>(B) Remember the wondrous works that he has done,
C)”>(C) his miracles and the judgments he uttered,
3. From song Reward
I love this whole song because it talks about what happens after you make that long walk down the isle to meet jesus. I’ll high light a few of my favorites though
“I give my life again, every breath I have. Jesus’ you are my reward all i’m living for. Jesus, here I am with open hands lifted high to you. Could my heart contain all your love for me. Nothing compares to knowing you”
Again do we believe that? I know i struggle with it, so many things seem so good but nothing compares to knowing God and if you really live for him you will experience that. I know I lived for myself and only me for around 5 years and it was miserable. It is a useless life with no payoff except for brief moments of hapiness. Living for God is a reward.
