Movers and Shapers
Have you noticed how smooth the rocks and boulders are in the river beds of the Great Smoky Mountains? Obviously the rocks are much harder than water, but it is the water that shapes the rocks and not vice versa.
Yes, rocks may divert the flow temporarily, but sooner or later the force of rushing water will inevitably move or reshape even the largest of stones.
You may have found yourself between a rock and a hard place in life and the weight of your circumstances seem unmovable, yet I am here to encourage you -- prayer, like the rushing waters, touches the heart of God to move or smooth those obstacles which seem too heavy to bear on your own.
Jesus told His followers, "Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." (Mark 11:23-24)
Prayer does more than move stones -- it moves the heart of God to provide for your greatest needs. Of course, I am not suggesting a name it and claim it theology. I believe this talks about heartfelt prayers aligned with God's will and purpose.
He longs to hear your voice. Talk to Him about those rocks, boulders and even mountains in your life. Pray without doubt, but rather in full confidence knowing that with God all things are possible.
