Mountains Only Move When You Ask God to Move Them

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. (Matthew 7:7-8)

My little plum, why do you still doubt and think impossible is impossible? If there is a mountain standing in your way, simply ask Him to move it, and He will move it. How can you allow yourself to believe that what He has commanded you to do cannot be done? Did not Christ do it? And is He or is He not living inside of you?

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. (Philippians 4:13)

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. (1 John 4:4)

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7)

And why, little love, do you not give unto the Lord the heaviness you yourself have bonded onto your ankles? Why do you hold so dearly onto such a burden? Don’t you know how much He wants to take it away and gladly accepts all of it, if only you would just give it to Him and ask Him to take it from you?

Sweet child, whatever you ask, it will be given you, but you must ask! And if it is not given you as quickly as you had hoped, you must keep asking, all the while you wait. For if He has not yet answered, it simply means the time is not yet ripe; The Potter could still be in the middle of perfecting a single piece of His clay. (He could also be trying His precious clay vessel, but this we will, God willing, touch upon another day.) And if He never answers, then what you had asked for did not abide by His Will. Therefore, little dove, when you ask, be sure you ask His Will, and not your will, be done.

If you truly seek with all of your heart, you will find. The Lord is Faithful and gives freely, but He wants us to want and seek more of Him. Though He already knows our needs, He wants us to come to Him and lay them down at His Feet as a child comes to a father before the father sits the child on his lap. Otherwise, we would become spoiled little children instead of thankful little lambs.

Therefore, ask.

You Cannot Trust Yourself

Trust not in yourself or in any of your devices (mind, bodily impulses, thoughts, and most definitely not the heart), even in matters you think may be small, but lean on the Lord for everything and put all of your trust in Him.

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6)

Trusting in yourself is like walking through a dark cave with only the candlelight as your guide. Some passages you will see, many you will miss; some sharp edges you can avoid, others you will run into blindly. Trust in the Lord wholeheartedly, little one; He will shine the sun throughout the entire cave, illuminating every crevice such that darkness could not even hide within the smallest cracks.

A man that chooses to trust in his own devices in even the slightest way is also like a man digging a hole searching for water. He may find a little water, but only for a short while, for he will surely have to dig again as soon as the last hole dries up. This he will continue to do all of his life. Meanwhile, a river flows endlessly right behind him, merely a few yards away, but he does not see it because his stubbornness has taken him.

Let the Lord lead you, dear child, lest you’d like to find yourself digging for a lifetime for only a few drops of water, when you could have had an instant and endless supply, no digging required.
