Life is much like climbing a mountain and we can learn a lot from those who aspire to reach the highest peaks.
During our life’s journey, we will often ask the question, “Why God?” It seems as if we want Him to give us an itinerary in advance, with a heads up on any pitfalls up ahead. We want our journey to be smooth sailing and failure-free. Yet that’s not always the case. Take the example of a mountain climber who faces many challenges.
For the Christian, there should be an overwhelming and pervasive sense of wellbeing and peace, no matter what goes on in our world. Let’s take time out to step outside the chaos of politics, work, disappointments, stress, discouragement, and any burdens we might have.Let’s step into a spirit of thankfulness, peace, and tranquility that comes only from our Father above. Here are four good reasons why Christians can stay positive and calm even when our world seems to be falling apart:
“But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, 0 thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?” (Matthew 14:30-31)If there’s any way the devil can get your eyes away from the Word, he’ll do it. He’ll cause trouble.The devil will make the circumstances around you pitch and roll like a rowboat in a hurricane.
