With God, all obstacles serve His purpose. We all have mountains in our lives. Problems great and small that seem insurmountable, hindering our progress.
That job we hate, the personal problem we can't seem to overcome. Relationship problems, all seemingly unconquerable.
Not so, God can remove all and any of our problems, but, He can also make us what He wants us to be through them. Sometimes He puts the mountain there. However, we know, God will never fail to keep His promises.
He understands the way we take, and when we come to the foot of the mountain, we shall find the way.
The meaning of trial is not only to test worthiness, but to increase it. As the oak is not only tested by the storms, but toughened by them. So the mountains in our lives test and toughen us.
