Stilling Mountains


Exodus 3:12
And he said, Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token unto thee, that I have sent thee: When thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain.

This started out as a Christmas gift, that turned into a painting, which turned into an Inspirational post. I hadn’t attempted an Oil painting in years, until my Wife bought me a new set of oils to try. I was actually pleased with the result, which we called “Stilling Mountains”. Then, much like things in this life, whether good or bad, it turned into something more.

No matter what you’ve faced, there will still be mountains to climb. Yet, know that He is still with you, even when you fill alone. The wind that fills like it surrounds you as you’re climbing, may simply be a protecting wind from things we cannot see.

At times, the stillness isn’t the mountains, because they can literally shake underneath us, especially when they’re getting ready to move. The stillness isn’t in the conditions, but in The Conditioner. He stills us for the situation we face.

Don’t allow your mind to overwhelm you, either at the foot of the mountain, or during the climb. Trust in God, and soon, all will be quiet, He will still the noises that distract us. The God that made the mountains knows how to climb, topple, or cover them with a flooding of His power. Either way, He will bring you to the summit, where like Moses, you will see the Glory Of God!
