Mountains Do Move!

Have you ever seen God move mountains? I have. I have watched Him move mountains several times in my life. But the biggest mountain wasn’t in Colorado; it was a mountain in Kansas. This particular mountain was the paperwork for a surgery my daughter needed. Surgery was scheduled for July 3. We had all the necessary paperwork signed and everything was ready. We double-checked to make sure we had dotted all the i’s and crossed all the t’s. Except the federal government changed providers on July 1, so none of the paperwork was valid on July 3.

But God…

But God provided the surgeon who was willing to wait while I called Tricare on the east coast for new authorization. But God provided a nurse who listened to my daughter and heard what was going on. She looked beyond the paperwork and saw a teenager who was not thriving. She pestered the review board to authorize the surgery. We were told it would not happen so we went to get lunch. But my husband went the wrong way which delayed our travel just long enough for the nurse to call and tell us to return to the hospital before my daughter ate or drank anything. But God provided a surgical team who came back to the hospital to perform the eight hour surgery, taking time away from their holiday plans. But God provided nurses who stayed by my daughter all night as she came out of recovery. But God…

This week we reflect on Psalm 121. This psalm reminds us God never sleeps. He keeps watch on us and our family. He knows where you are, where your adult children are, and where your estranged family members are. He knows. You may not know where they are or what they are doing but God sees; He never sleeps. Pray to the Lord Who Sees—El Roi. He met Hagar in the desert, He helped Ruth and Naomi return home, and He was with Mary and Joseph in Bethlehem. In the hardest times, He sees you and me.

A Song of Ascents.

I lift up my eyes to the hills.

From where does my help come?

My help comes from the Lord,

who made heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot be moved;

he who keeps you will not slumber.

Behold, he who keeps Israel

will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is your keeper;

the Lord is your shade on your right hand.

The sun shall not strike you by day,

nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep you from all evil;

he will keep your life.

The Lord will keep

your going out and your coming in

from this time forth and forevermore.

Psalm 121

What mountains do you want or need God to move in your life? Spend time this week during your fast and ask God to move. What mountain has God moved in your life? Thank Him for those and look for ways you can serve others who face their own mountains.
