"Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams; and ye little hills, like lambs?" Psalm 114:6
In context the verse above is talking about the Lord bringing His people out of Egypt. This verse is a metaphor describing the fact that nothing could stand in His way, or stand against Him. The mountains, which seem immoveable, moved out of the way. The hills that had been in the same place since the beginning of time, stepped aside to let them through. Pharaoh was not able to stop Him and His plan. His army was powerless against Him. The gods of Egypt were unable to stop Him.
This is good news for us. How so? Because we aren't talking about the God of the "past" only. He is the God of the present. We are talking about a God who has not changed. He is still the same- He is still as able to do today what He did back then. Today He is just as powerful. Today He is still unstoppable. Nothing has ever been able to stand against Him and nothing ever will.
These mountains and hills represent the obstacles and hindrances that we face. What are the obstacles that are standing in your way from reaching the promises of the Lord? Is there a mountain? Are there any hills that are blocking the path? Is there a sea before you? Is there an army breathing down your back? Is there a furnace raging? Lion's roaring? Does the situation look impossible? Be encouraged this morning, they may be standing in your way, but they aren't standing in God's way. They submit to Him, they bow at His presence, all the earth fears the Lord including mountains and hills-- hindrances and obstacles.
No matter how big the mountain you may be facing today is, it is not too big for the Lord. It is not too powerful for Him. So be encouraged and say to this mountain, "Be removed and cast into the sea".
Have a great day. There is nothing that can stand against God.
